On August 6, 2012, Delpopolo was expelled from the Olympics by the IOC after he tested positive for cannabis. Upon exiting the games, Delpopolo stated the positive test result was caused by "inadvertant consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana, before I left for the Olympic Games."
