WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama said he doesn't think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol, "in terms of its impact on the individual consumer."

"As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don't think it is more dangerous than alcohol," the president said an interview with "The New Yorker" magazine.

NEVER elect people whose brains were altered by drugs to positions where they can write 2800 page laws that make absolutely no sense, and are totally unworkable. The only “Probability” part of the “Have probably done the same thing” is if you vote for a liberal progressive Democrat, you PROBABLY are dealing with a drug altered drug deprived mind, soon to be followed by a wealth deprived nation where the drug abusers never get locked up, just your money in failing social experiments that acquire in perpetuity a life of their own.

He sucks on cigarettes today and in his youth sucked on cannabis and other things.

Research is showing that using pot in your teens or even younger does real damage to your brain. Obviously in his case.

Mr. Obama, when was the LAST time you smoked pot? When was the LAST time you snorted/smoked cocaine?

His reasoning: “Middle-class kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do … And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.”

"Middle-class kids don't get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do,"

Who gets locked up for smoking pot (and nothing else), period?

Heck, hispanics who are suspected of being foreign nationals aren't even charged when they are stopped under suspicion of DWI. Too much paperwork, not enough money for the fines.

Dopehead president. Dopehead nation.

America has become such an embarrassment. I’ve really been coming around to the realization that the country is getting everything it deserved, via 2008 and 2012.

“really puts the wind in the sails of the movement to end marijuana prohibition.”

I’ve brought this up on other threads- we urged, and signed a UN treaty making cannabis globally illegal, and out of that treaty came several international laws.

Are we just going to ignore that? What will UN or INTERPOL do?

He was going around Honolulu permitting himself to be FELLATED by older white homoz in return for freebase cocaine.

His high-school yearbook dedication at Punahou read, "Thanks, Ray, for all the good times..."

Ray was an older white homosexual Honolulu drug-dealer who was later beaten to death by an angry male intimate.

Wouldn’t it be ‘funny’ if one day we found out that as Benghazi was happening, Barack was ‘completely unavailable’. Why? Maybe Barack was holed up somewhere in the West Wing waiting for Carney. You see, Jay Carney had been sent out into ‘the flatlands’ of Washington to score some shall we say, recreational refreshment for his master, Barack. “Do it like the last time, Jay, just put on your son’s school uniform and pretend you go to that Charter School.
And, don’t, and don’t you come back here, uh,uh, until you got some, are we clear on that Jay?

Well if Barky would tell the whole truth he went a leetle farther than pot. I’m just worried that he’s still doing what he went a leetle farther on. A couple of those speeches he made he looked like he was on something.

I wonder how many thousands, perhaps millions, of mothers, especially black single mothers who have been trying to raise their kids with boundaries…..Do not smoke marijuana!…….are now told by their children…..”Well, the President says he smoked it and it is no different from drinking alcohol”……. That bastard president just made it a thousand times as difficult to raise that little black kid whole has all of the peer pressure on him, now the damn President has thrown in with those dope-using peers,….and that kids mother’s job of raising that kid has been multiplied because of what this jerk President said.

Wow. Most successful people leave marijuana behind after college. So Obama's use was not part of his "rebellious phase as a teen/young adult; rather he broke the law for a good chunk of his adult life.

Dems want pot legalization so our youths are as addle brained as Obungu figuring that such people will behave like lemmings and vote Democrat forever

Legalize the illegal aliens = More Democrat voters
Legalize marijuana = More Democrat voters

Maybe tell your girls that it's illegal. Like they would ever get arrested...and it would of course have been profiling...

We just had an incident in my homeown, Rochester NY. The new mayor is a black female named Lovely Warren. Seems she and her "security" driver (a relative) were stopped for speeding to Albany for the crowning of Cuomo. Going over 90...got stopped. And they got stopped on the way back, too. The excuse is...it's a security feature??? Really??

P.S. A Rochester mayor has NEVER had a private security team.

She fired the police chief, the fire chief...and is talking about a city water park. She's nuts.

""And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties."

And who's fault is that? Most of those inner-city "kids" behind bars for simple pot possession have records for other offenses. I say it's their parents' and school systems fault, not to mention Fed and State welfare policies.

And here's a clue for you, being the privileged and groomed half-black person you are: Life is not fair, no matter how much you socialists/communists attempt to make it so. Grow up you racist child.

Want to talk about the dis-proportionate black crime versus their percentage of population? Didn't think so, because racists like you and your ilk keep them down with welfare.

The Republican lead welfare reform during the Clinton years was showing some results. You immediately got rid of the work requirement and we're back to square one.

You, Mr. President have pushed the worse policies since our 1997 real estate melt-down. Even then, that originally happened because of your liberal co-horts (Todd and Frank) demanding low-interest loans for years from the financial institutions to people who could not qualify to buy a lawn mover on payments. Yes, the loaners should have said no go. Many were greedy and helped kill our economy through their insane derivative bundling.

Everything negative this Nation has experienced since then has been due to your idiotic policies. Really? 800 million dollars for "shovel ready" jobs that didn't pan out. Now you want more? I personally believe you to be way over your head and have only sycophants to back you. You only appoint those who agree with your Utopian ideology.

As an ex-businessmen, I made a special point of hiring those who would tell me when they thought I was wrong. I wanted the truth of my decisions. Often times, they made since and I changed my position. Your ego just won't let you do the same.

History is going to see you as the worse domestic/economical president ever, but worse, you have alienated our Allys and stupidly embraced our enemies - Muslim Brotherhood for one. You will go down as one of the worse foreign policy presidents this country has witnessed.

Wish your family well, but wish you had never shown up. Plus, your supposed legacy Hillary is no better. Don't even think of promoting the idiot Biden. If I had a dollar for every time he has put his foot in his mouth, I would have a hundred dollars...haha.
