9 Closet Celebrity Stoners (pg. 6)

BARACK OBAMA

In 2006, before he announced that he was running for President of the United States in 2008, Obama made another shocking announcement when he confirmed a few details he’d written about in his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father: He tried weed and cocaine as a teenager. “When I was a kid, I inhaled,” Obama said, poking fun at President Bill Clinton’s 1992 assertion that he smoked weed once but did not inhale. “That was the point.” It’s not particularly surprising to hear a President admit that he’d toked (though the coke thing kinda threw us for a loop)  but it was relatively surprising to hear him admit it so candidly. As far as legalizing marijuana in the States, though? Don’t hold your breath.
