Does President Obama Need 15 Hour Drug Education Course?

by Mike Miller February 23, 2014

It has been well-documented that our current president, Barack Hussein Obama was a pot smoker. He is the latest of three straight presidents who admit using illicit drugs.

President Bill Clinton admitted to smoking marijuana, however, he insists that he did not inhale the smoke and therefore never became high. President George Bush (the son not the father) has a well-known history of drug issues, most notably an addiction to cocaine. Bush has dedicated his life to sobriety and as a result worked his way up to the most powerful position in the world. As reported in

Now back to our current president. Obama suggested that he has skepticism about lawmakers making laws that allow harsh penalties for doing something when in reality many of them have done the same thing themselves. An excellent example of this type of hypocrisy is Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla) who was busted in Washington, D.C. for purchasing cocaine from an undercover agent and received probation and is still a congressman.

President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have recently made changes to the sentencing disparities involved with crack cocaine. The Obama Administration is now focusing on the disparities of the number of poor kids locked up as compared to middle-class kids that are not locked up for doing the same thing.

Marijuana is currently classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule 1 substance, which the DEA considers "the most dangerous class of drugs with a high potential for abuse and potentially severe psychological and/or physical dependence." Other Schedule 1 drugs include heroin, ecstasy and LSD.

The Obama Administration has no intentions of hindering the recent marijuana laws passed in Colorado and Washington State. With this lax approach in enforcing the federal laws regarding marijuana, it’s only a matter of time before more states follow suit. Do you think we are setting a dangerous precedent? Does Obama need to take a drug class himself?
