Obama Smoked Marijuana, Why Can’t I?

obama marijuanaSmoking Marijuana Is A Harmless Act

Marijuana opponents always give the slippery slope argument – if people smoke marijuana, it will lead to bad things. Barack Obama smoked marijuana, and he became the President of the United States. Obama is not the only President to smoke marijuana, he’s just the one that we have so much footage of on YouTube. All the way back to George Washington Presidents have consumed marijuana. Marijuana has to be one of the only areas of public policy where the policy makers have first hand experience with the harmless activity, yet still uphold the failed laws, at least in the case of Obama.

When I smoke marijuana, I am not bothering anyone. I smoked about two grams today already, and I have had no desire to call the local heroin dealer, despite what marijuana opponents will lead you to believe. I have consumed marijuana for 18 years and it has never led me to commit crimes, it has never resulted in me causing a crash (although I have crashed sober!), and by all accounts I’m a productive member of society. Marijuana opponents will always point to impaired motor skills, but they never want to talk about how much it impairs your motor skills. I have smoked a lot of marijuana, and not one time have I fallen down a flight of stairs :)

The fact of the matter is, marijuana use does not lead to a lower quality of life. I would argue it has improved my life greatly. Marijuana helps me relax, it helps my ailments, it helps me focus on writing, and marijuana enhances my social interactions. I know I’m not alone, in fact I’m preaching to the choir I’m sure. How many of you out there have smoked marijuana, and have never committed a crime other than the ‘crime’ of smoking marijuana? I would imagine there are millions. Why politicians are constantly trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist, is beyond me.

What’s really going to piss me off is when, in the near future, marijuana support reaches a critical level and the conversation is everywhere, some A hole politician is going to come along and act like they were the one that put the idea out there all along. I won’t be completely upset, as long as it results in ending prohibition, but I will be at least slightly annoyed. Below is a picture that I have been saving for awhile of famous marijuana consumers. As you can see, it’s some big hitters and people that shaped our world. It makes you wonder, where would the world be without marijuana consumption?

    I saw a show on A&E a few years back on the drug wars and according to it the only reason marijuana was made illegal in the US was to stop the mexicans from crossing the boarder & taking the white mans jobs. Guess what that didnt stop them so the law is outdated and the only reason it hasnt been repealed is its big money to fund the DEA and other law enforcement agencies.

  2. In 08, every Dem. candidate vying for POTUS admitted to using MJ.  Our last 3 Presidents admitted to using it.  JFK used it while in office (He was always ahead of the curve).  One has to wonder how these people become such staunch Prohibitionists politically, when they went through their whole lives knowing marijuana didn’t cause  any harm.

  3. Prohibition has finally run it’s course; the lives and livelihoods of hundred’s of millions of people worldwide have been destroyed or severely disrupted; many countries that were once shining beacons of liberty and prosperity have become toxic, repressive, smoldering heaps of hypocrisy, and a gross affront to fundamental human decency. It is now the duty of every last one of us to insure that the people who are responsible for this shameful situation are not simply left in peace to enjoy the wealth and status that their despicable actions have, until now, afforded them. Former and present Prohibitionists must not be allowed to remain “untainted and untouched” from the unconscionable acts that they have viciously committed on their fellow human beings, and even now, still wish to continue doing. – They have provided us with neither safe communities nor safe streets; we will provide them with neither a safe haven to enjoy their ill-gotten gains nor the liberty to repeat such a similar atrocity!
