Michael Phelps suspended from US swimming

Michael Phelps, the record breaking Olympic swimmer has been suspended from US swimming for 3 months. A British newspaper published a photograph showing Phelps smoking marijuana at a party being held by the students at the University of South Carolina in Columbia in November. Phelps has disppointed thousands of people especially swimmers who see him as a role model.
Apology
After publication of the photograph at the newspaper, Phelps apologised.
Punishment
The International Olympic Committee had accepted his apology. But in South Carolina possession of marijuana is a misdemeanour and it is punishable as upto 30 days in jail or a $570 fine. Since he smoke marijuana out of competition, this may not come under the anti-doping matter.
