Billionaire tycoon of Virgin Atlantic Richard Branson kept it all the way gully with President Barack Obama during a recent state dinner at the White House for British Prime Minister David Cameron

As Business Insider reports, The pro-‘Mary Jane’ advocate told employees at his Atlantic Magazine office the day after the exchange, “I asked him if I could have a spliff, but they didn’t have any.”

Whether or not Branson really thought he’d be smoking a blunt out in the back with the O-Man himself, it’s still pretty entertaining to imagine two powerful men blazing up like college kids again.—Keenan Higgins
