Notorious stoner President Obama claims weed is no more dangerous than alcohol. In a lengthy article published in The New Yorker, the president is reported as downplaying marijuana-smoking as nothing more than a "bad habit." But following public opinion (leading from behind, as usual), the president said legalization of pot in Washington state and Colorado could even lead to legalization of cocaine and methamphetamine. "As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life," Mr. Obama said. "I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” Laughing Conservative has been unable to confirm rumors that the president favors exotic and potent varietals of pot, like Blueberry Yum Yum and Mango Kush and keeps an emergency supply of Cheetos in a glass-fronted case in the Oval Office's infamous 'Clinton closet' and can smash it open quickly with a small ornamental hammer attached with a chain, if he gets an attack of the munchies.
