U.S. Judo Olympian Expelled From Games For Eating a Pot Brownie
U.S. judoka competitor Nick Delpopolo has been expelled from the London Olympic Games on Monday after testing positive for marijuana. He admitted to eating a brownie that had been baked with the drug.
Delpopolo, 23, who finished seventh in the 73kg event, accepted his expulsion.
"My positive test was caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana, before I left for the Olympic Games," said Delpopolo.
"I apologize to the U.S. Olympic Committee, to my teammates, and to my fans, and I am embarrassed by this mistake. I look forward to representing my country in the future, and will re-dedicate myself to being the best judo athlete that I can be," he said in a statement.
