POTUS is at it again with nuggets of wisdom. He recently stated that he doesn’t think marijuana is any more dangerous than alcohol, in regards to its effects on the consumer. Hmmm, really?

“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. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” the president said an interview with “The New Yorker” magazine.

Such a ridiculous statement. If it’s not too dangerous to the consumer, then why would it be a bad habit and a vice? If it’s not bad for you, then why are you comparing it to cigarettes, which ARE bad for you? He’s contradicting himself again!

Smoking marijuana is “not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy,” Obama said.

Interesting. At first when I read this article in the Seattle Times, it sounded like he was OK with it. Now it doesn’t sound like something he’s in favor of at all. I’m confused…

What makes it even more confusing is his administration has given the green light to states who want to experiment with regulating marijuana use. Two states–Washington and Colorado, recently legalized the medicinal use of the stuff.

The president said “it was important for the legalization of marijuana to go forward in those states to avoid a situation in which only a few are punished while a large portion of people have broken the law at one time or another.”


“Middle-class kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do,” he said. “And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.”

Ohh, so it’s a prejudicial issue?

Nothing he says about marijuana make any sense. That is certainly true in this article, especially. Is it safe or not? Is he for it or not?

I still think the legalization of marijuana in my state is a bad idea, and I think it will fall into the wrong hands and be consumed for the wrong reasons. It has nothing to do with how much money someone makes, or their race. My only concern is; are they lighting up before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle? If they are impaired, they could hurt someone I care about in a serious car crash. Similar to drunk driving.

What I’m concerned about, Mr. President, is whether someone can become addicted to the drug when they are consuming it for health purposes. If enough people abuse the system, are my health insurance premiums going to go up?

That’s what we should be looking at, Mr. President. It’s as simple as that.
