Follow-Up: Michael Phelps Suspended

Olympian Michael Phelps is seeing consequences from a recent photo that shows him appearing to smoke marijuana.  News broke Thursday that USA Swimming was suspending Phelps from competition for three months, during which he won't get any financial support from the organization.  The group says Phelps has "voluntarily accepted this reprimand and has committed to earn back our trust."

Also on Thursday:  The Kellogg company said it wouldn't renew its advertising contract with the swimmer, saying, "Michael's most recent behavior is not consistent with the image of Kellogg."

Phelps didn't comment immediately on either the Kellogg contract or the USA Swimming suspension.  But you're welcome to tell us what you think of what Phelps is facing.
