CNN: Double standard for Phelps and A-Rod
CNN’s Jason Carroll reports that marijuana advocacy groups see a double standard between the way that Michael Phelps and Alex Rodriguez have been treated. Rodriguez has suffered no punishment after admitting to taking substances banned by Major League Baseball. Michael Phelps was suspended by USA Swimming and Kellogg’s refused to renew his contract after a picture surfaced of him allegedly smoking from a bong.
