Nicholas Delpopolo Disqualified For Cannabis: U.S. Judoka Expelled From Olympics For Failed Drug Test

LONDON -- American judo fighter Nick Delpopolo was expelled from the Olympics for doping Monday, saying he unintentionally ate something before the games that had been baked with marijuana.  The 23-year-old judoka from Westfield, N.J., said his positive test was "caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana" before he left for the Olympics.

Is there anyone here that believes this? That a batch of brownies was all he consumed.  Not that I care, but is there anyone here that thinks that all of the US Olympic basiketball team is clean?  How about the world teams? 

Just remember that marijuana is not banned from the NBA Collective bargaining agreement.  Just sayin.

Our Olympic committees needs to start testing our athletes BEFORE they board the plane.  If NASCAR can do it, surely the US Olympic committee can do it....the atheletes need to KNOW the committee is SERIOUS!

Good morning Dale. I think this is an embarrassment and while I believe others are dirty I agree with Wallace, test up front. As far as the professional basketball players are concerned, I think they are interlopers, professionals with time and money.

Must have been marijuana cookies, etc?  Sure I bet.  Not fair to those who play by the rules.

Wallace, you hit it, our committee is more concerned about money and winning for sponsorships.  I didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday, most athletes at a high level smoke pot.

Hey Sheila, our bball team could stay home for all I care.  They might be the best, but I would still rather watch amateurs.

Edward, we just have to know who controls the rules.  And the rules have been stretched so far, that just about every athlete is a professional now.

I'm glad the Olympics is over. Let the real games begin. lol If we just suspend our disbelief even for a miniscule second, does anybody have marijuana laying around in their pantry next to the sack of flour?

LOL I don't bake so I really wouldn't know.

Re: professional athletes, there was a time when they were all amateurs--it was a much better Olympics in my view.

Yolanda, maybe we are showing our age and our innocence, but the marketing wasn't as great either.  It was about great athletes doing great things, not some corporate outing.

Speak for yourself Dale. I just turned 29 again. LOL

True. I feel that poor countries had a better chance of winning way back when. Now they not only can't finance their training, housing, transportation, equipment, uniforms... they can't afford steroids, either. :)

Yolanda, well said, can't have an upstart nation beating the US or something.
