Barack Obama was pub crawling in Denver Tuesday when a resident of that city, where marijuana is now legal, offered him a hit of pot. Obama’s reaction? A laugh.
Because what else are you going to do when you’re the president and someone offers you a hit off their legal joint? You certainly can’t accept the offer, legal or not. At the same time, you can’t just ignore the guy. You want to be considered down with the kids. So, you have to at least give up a little chuckle.
Well-played by the president overall.
Of course it would have been way more awesome if he’d taken the hit. “Sure my man, hand it over. Woah, good weed bro. I love me some ganja.”
But that’s not the world we live in. We live in a world where, if you’re the president and someone offers you weed, you have to laugh and continue on your way. No matter how much you might wish to partake of the leaf.
And believe me, Obama wanted to take that hit. Worse than anything in the world. Later when he was alone, I hope he threw on some Marley and sparked one up. I hope he got totally stoned with Michelle and his Secret Service peeps.
I hope they turned Air Force One into the world’s biggest flying hotbox. I sincerely do.
