Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has been in hot water this week after a photo was released of him smoking marijuana.
The 23-year-old publicly apologized for his actions saying that he "clearly made a mistake."
"It's obviously bad judgment and it's something I'm not proud of at all," said Phelps. "I will say that with the mistakes that I've made in my life, I've learned from them. ... That's what I plan to do from here. It's definitely not what I wanted, and it's clearly not what my mom wanted."
He states that he is not a regular marijuana smoker and that it "definitely wasn't easy" to tell his mom about the incident.
