Obama Still Intercepting Marijuana

A sneak peak at a new biography of President Obama revealed some interesting things about his marijuana use that are pretty sad when you look at his track record on the issue of medical marijuana.

From the biography:

Barry also had a knack for interceptions. When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted “Intercepted!,” and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind.

Now, some may look at this and ask how the president could possibly be so against marijuana reform that he laughs at the mere suggestion? How could a (former?) marijuana user continue to advocate putting other marijuana users in jail?

If you really think about it, though, Obama hasn’t changed at all. His behavior now is merely an extension of his behavior as a young marijuana user. He has no problems with his own use, and does not face any legal or social consequences for it, yet has no qualms about interfering with others who are trying to get it.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Here’s hoping the illustrious Choom Gang of Punahou School in Honolulu, circa 1979, will issue its dreaded “veto” over President Barack Obama’s current stance on marijuana policy.
