WASHINGTON (AP) — An Idaho man charged with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama by shooting at the White House practiced with his weapon for six months and may have been upset about the country’s marijuana policy, prosecutors said in a newly filed court document.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez is currently awaiting trial for the 2011 shooting, which didn’t injure anyone but left more than five bullet marks on the executive mansion. Prosecutors filed a 14-page court document Tuesday that adds additional detail about Ortega-Hernandez, who allegedly shot at the White House the night of Nov. 11 while the president and first lady were away.

Ortega-Hernandez, 22, has pleaded not guilty to the attempted assassination charge and to other charges.

In the document, prosecutors said Ortega-Hernandez “expressed anger towards the government regarding the continued criminalization of marijuana,” which they said he acknowledged smoking and claimed makes people more intelligent.

Surely a work place, disgruntled weedhead. Needs counseling.

That sucks!

It only took a year and half to get to court. Must be work place violence.

One pot head shooting at another. What’s not to like? Bullet damage to the White House is inexcusable!
