Barack Obama Smoked a Lot of Pot as a Young Man

Posted by Paul Constant on Fri, May 25, 2012 at 1:59 PM

BuzzFeed has gone through David Maraniss's upcoming Obama biography and pulled out the pot-smoking parts. There are quite a few pot-smoking parts:

When you were with Barry and his pals, if you exhaled precious pakalolo (Hawaiian slang for marijuana, meaning "numbing tobacco") instead of absorbing it fully into your lungs, you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around. "Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated," explained one member of the Choom Gang, Tom Topolinski, the Chinese-looking kid with a Polish name who answered to Topo.

I expect that Fox News will immediately begin warning their viewers about the crippling effects of inhaling marijuana smoke just once in your life.
