Andrew Kirell asks the right question:
In light of these stories, shouldnâ€™t President Obama offer every American the right to â€œchoomâ€ (verb, to smoke marijuana), instead of continuing to lock up marijuana users for hitting three-foot bongs like he did?
Young Obama apparently was also a bit of a bogart when it came to communal marijuana smoking:
Barry also had a knack for interceptions. When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted â€œIntercepted!,â€ and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind.
In light of one of this administration’s drug policy fetishes, I also find it a bit ironic that Obama had actually developed a special way to smoke pot while in the car.
