    I said "if".

    Would it make a difference in your mind?

    Would it matter to anyone if he was smoking in a country that legalizes pot?
    It would really matter if it was legal where he was "caught".
    He is still in trouble with Swimming officials, because pot is on the banned substances list (silly rule, see Joe Waren, but still officially banned).

    Also sponsors don't care too much about the legalities, they are more concerned into paying a sponsor millions who has got caught doing something that is what you want role models. If he was filmed just as stupid but absolutely legal (maybe making racists comments) he would be dropped just as fast. If you are going to take the millions to be a sponsor...the public face of a product or coporation, you are held to a high standard.
