Obama Offered Hit Off a Joint in Colorado

Posted by on Wed, Jul 9, 2014 at 4:39 PM

Around the time the prez warded off a man in a horse mask, this happened:

"Asked him if he wanted a hit of pot...he laughed! #legalizeit #iinhaled," says Instagrammer Matt Anton in the accompanying caption. More evidence that you don't have to actually smoke the stuff to have a good time.

He shouldve saved the joint for right before meeting with Rick Perry

It's good that he can laugh while his Dept. of Justice continues to prosecute/persecute a family in Washington for growing medical marijuana according to Washington laws.

He should have compared how the weed in Colorado was vs the weed in Kenya where he was born and raised (snark font).

And a President Romney, a President McCain, or even a President Mrs. Clinton, would have chuckled as well.

Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Taylor, Pierce, mayyyyybe Lincoln, and quite possibly Kennedy (in addition to the most recent three for sure) smoked pot or hashish, some perhaps opium as well.

The older ones might have laughed at Obama for turning it down.

@6 Nixon had a rather large pharmaceutical expense. FDR no doubt at least dabbled with "alternative" medicines to deal with Polio. Opium was a common prescription for dealing with pain throughout the 1800s (history really).

Yeah I'd say most of our Presidents have used cannabis and opiates.
