    Caution : Smoking Cannabis May Lead To Presidency Of The United States



    College photos from 1980, by Lisa Jack, of the already serving US President Barack Obama smoking pot and looking, basically, pretty wasted, were discovered before the election, but are only now seeing publication in Time Magazine :
    "For a while, Jack put the negatives in a safety-deposit box, so that they could not be used until after the election, when there would be no chance they could be used for a political purpose."
    The full story of these 'lost' Obama photographs, plus many more pics, are here.

    But would the above picture have really damaged Obama's run for the White House? Or would their early revelation only led to more slightly uncomfortable news chat where journalists have to admit to also having smoked a fair slab of weed in their youth as well?

    I doubt that photos of an extremely happy young man smoking cannabis would have harmed Obama's election chances much at all. Most Americans are anything but hysteric about occasional cannabis use, nor do they widely object to its use as a medicine.

    Any number of state and federal politicians in Australia, including leaders, have now admitted they have, sometimes deeply, inhaled. Does anybody, anywhere, really care anymore if anybody, local doctor or politician or president, smoked cannabis when they were young? It would not appear so.

    The question now is will Obama open up the United States to legal, widespread use of medicinal cannabis? At one point last week, 16 of the Top 50 most popular 'Obama, Please Make This Change' subjects on his Change.gov website were about legal cannabis for the sick and injured.

    Will Obama betray the tens of millions of true believers who know, as he did, and presumably still does, that cannabis (including hemp) is one of the most miraculous of all the plants of this planet? Will he revive dying farm economies with the hope of Hemp, for its oil, its fibre, its biofuel value, the vast protein storied in its seeds?

    Will he launch a new generation of Hemp For Victory farmers and industry?

    Thumbs up
    I could not care less if the President toked up. I would rather have a peaceful guy/gal that enjoyed the kind bud than a dry drunk with impulse control problems in office.

    Although Time Magazine probably fact-checked this, that guy in the photo only passingly resembles Obama, IMO. Really nice shots, though.

    Yeah, he's a poser because he doesn't smoke weed.

    btw, it's NOT weed.

    To some people, smoking tobacco is more objectionable than smoking cannabis.

    No (if it's not weed or he's not high) he's a poser for looking high when he's not. Brush-up on your comprehension skills buddy.

    Anyways, he's admitted to smoking weed to get high, so it doesn't matter if he's toking in the pics or not. The man smoked plenty of marijuana, unless, like I said, he's just a big fat phony.
