Years ago controversial photos of Michael Phelps smoking marijuana through a bong surfaced. Phelps is now opening up about the photos to Details magazine stating, "It was a learning experience. I'm the kind of person who has to go through the learning experiences myself. Somebody could tell me, 'If you eat this much you'll be fat,' and I'd be like, 'Yeah, okay, let me try it.' I'll be the first to say I've made thousands of mistakes, but I've never made the same mistake twice."
