Nick Delpopolo Kicked Out of Olympics for Eating Weed Brownies

I am shocked this didn’t happen to Michael Phelps.

Nick was booted from the 2012 Games after failing a drug test … and now he says he has a perfectly good explanation — he was tricked into eating pot.

The 23-year-old just released a statement saying his dirty test was “caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana.”

The International Olympic Committee draws a hard line when it comes to drugs … they expelled Delpopolo from the games, stripped him of his accreditation, and will change the standings in his event. He had placed 7th in the competition.
