Puff the Magic Obama! Ex-Pres Reportedly Likes His Pot!
Former President Obama sure has been living it up since leaving the White House. After 8 years of the most stressful job on the planet, you deserve to let off some steam. Obama has been hanging out with billionaires and enjoying rides on megayachts. Even Democrats have been critical of his lavish lifestyle and how that looks to average Americans. He has traveled the world and taken time for many adventures, living the life of the rich and famous. He has enjoyed kitesurfing, white water rafting, and traveling on private jets to getaways most Americans can only dream of spending a single night at!
But apparently sometimes a guy needs to unwind, and I mean really unwind.
Obama made no secret of his pot smoking years in high school. He wrote about it in his book and makes no apologies. According to David Maraniss’ biography “Barack Obama: The Story,” Obama and his friends were serious potheads and would drive around with the windows up, lest any precious pot escaped out the window! Obama would then “suck in every last bit of pot from the ceiling.” Sounds like future president material to me!
But somehow I would think a 56-year-old father and ex-leader of the free world might be able to avoid the need for pot. I would be wrong. Apparently, Obama is back on the mary jane, and he prefers it in gummies, instead of smoking. I would guess gummies would be a bit more discreet for the former president.
Author Ed Klein joined the Janet Mefferd Show on Bott Radio Network tonight on Tuesday night and dropped this morsel – Obama is chomping down on pot gummy bears.
Ms. Mefferd, a longtime former religion writer for the Dallas Morning News is now a Christian Talk Show host. On Tuesday she interviewed Ed Klein on his latest book “All out war: the plot to destroy Donald Trump”.
The conversation turned to former President Barack Obama, and how he’s not quite being the warrior that many expected him to be (and I must confess that knowing) 1. Obama doesn’t like people (according to a former staffer), 2. that he’s far from the most disciplined of men, and 3. that he may still have some bad habits from his younger days (I somewhat expected this).
Mr. Klein dropped this baby H-bomb on the show (around the 15;05 mark):
“According to my sources, despite all the efforts on the part of the Democratic party to get the former president engaged he’s, uh, totally disengaged, he’s, uh, as you just said, playing video games like a teenager, going back to his “Choom gang” days in Hawai’i when he smoked pot.
He’s popping gummy bears infused with cannabis… all this comes from a source of mine who actually has smoked marijuana with him since he left the White House.”
TGP reader Kurt added: Part of me wants to laugh at this, Jim, yet another part is very uneasy tonight. This is who “we” elected for two four -year terms, and given tonight’s Virginia and New Jersey results there are many who would be happy to have such a man in office again (and ignore things like this). Also, remembering how past despots choose people who think like them, he’s got far too many of his own “shadow government” (Mr. Klein’s term) in place already.
We’re only in a reprieve, and we must keep vigilant for our nation.
What a role model for kids today! What a classy guy. He has made public jokes about marijuana and has even advised college students to be careful that they don’t get their picture taken doing such behavior because “everything’s searchable.” While it’s not surprising a liberal takes drug use lightly, it is a bit surprising that the former president of the United States would do so! Then again, Obama always has had this apparent need to be “the cool kid.”
President Trump doesn’t drink or smoke. He prefers to keep a clear head. He recently declared the opioid crisis a health emergency and understands that we have a drug problem in America. I’m glad we have someone without a vice that would impair his judgement. Hopefully, Obama waited until he was out of office before he lit it up.
