Like a past president, he could have just taken a hit but not inhale

Actually he already addressed that sound bite during his 2008 election campaign. He admitted to not only smoking it but inhaling it. He made that exact distinction.

Because it's not illegal in Colorado and why start # like that. States rights has always been in delicate balance with federal law. o reply to: Catacomb

This highlights one of the major problems we have with politics and the media these days. The president declining to take a hit off a doobie will get more people's attention than anything he does while in the WH.

Politicians have become reality TV stars mixed with a little WWF. Celebrity and drama.

Who cares what he did or did not do at a the bar? What I'd like to know is what he did at work the next morning.


Preach, brother. Standing ovation.

As a federal official, why did he not report the man to federal law enforcement? Well, we all really know the answer, but just saying....


We don't know the answer, in fact. I'm curious what you think it is...

Anyway, that was cool. That guy that offered had some huevos. It's good to see such a casual attitude about these things.

President Obama Turns Down Pot at Denver Bar

I would have been seriously surprised if he had accepted and toke'd.
He's a dealer in hope-ium ... not a public partaker in 'substances' anymore.
When he gets out of office, that could easily change back ....

Unless as a result of having strayed so far from constitutional control the PC wave gets stepped on by some Republicrat Nazi who will find these NEW FOUND presidential escapades a useful tool. And the pendulum then swings into a McCarthyist mess.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

I'll say what I've said before. I didn't vote for him either time and still have a difficult time understanding how anyone could. But I could hang with the guy shooting pool and drinking beer. I dislike his politics but still think he's a decent sort.

For disclosure, there isn't a single friend I have I'd vote for as president. And not only a few I completely disagree with politically.

He's the first president we've had since maybe Harry Truman I think I could hang out with comfortably.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Wow! Can you imagine an atheist president that smokes a joint in public? The right wing would forget all about Benghazi and they would really scream for impeachment. Seriously though, the biggest force fighting MJ is Big Pharma. Who needs Oxycontin when you have MJ? Someday MJ will be as accepted and welcome as Mary Jane from "Gilligan's Island".

You're right.
That's what I get for not googling.

Why would he turn it down? Many different reasons, most political but think about it. He's probably got the most Primo stuff.

Bleh, he totally missed a prime opportunity to say "your gear is s---, man - here, try some of mine. And btw, learn to roll"

Seeing some of the crap spouted about him, how much worse can it get?

close. But i hear he smokes crack. And from what i understand pot would kill his high.

I doubt it. He probably doesn't smoke at all anymore. I know he did in his youth, but don't most people try things when they're in college? I know there's a lot of things I did then that I don't do anymore. And you think Michelle would be OK with it? I can't see it.

Yeah, I heard he's a gay Muslim, too. Don't believe everything you hear.

There is that. She'd probably beat the snot out of him. Once he's out of office, that's another story all together. Much more freedom. But while in office ... yeah ... I bet she's nail him to the floor.

I actually didn't mean that she'd physically assault him, but I do think she'd have a big problem with it. That kind of thing happens in a marriage.

No .. not literally nail him to the floor.
I thought the humor was apparent.
She's a tough woman. I think she runs the ship there ...
