    Unlike many past presidential candidates, Obama has openly admitted that when he was in High School and College, he smoked marajuana and snorted a little bit of cocaine.


    Here's the passage from his book, Dreams from My Father, where he discusses his drug use:

    "I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though......"

    Yet he puts people in jail and closes medical marijuana clinics that are legal in some areas.

    If he got caught smoking mj he would have gone to jail and could never be POTUS, but it's OK for him to write about it. :lol:

    The media went as far as making a movie about Boooosh and his drinking when he was in college.
    The media completely ignored Obama doing the same.
    That is a pretty good point.

    Exactly. His hypocrisy is overwhelming. Obama campaigned on NOT busting medical cannabis facilities...supporting the states. He now raids more facilities than Bush ever did. He's ESCALATED the war on drugs....the very drugs that he admitted using.

    Had some cop didn't bust young Barry years ago, he would have never made it to the Senate much less the White House.

    There is always a double standard in the media...of course.
    System-wide overt support for a single candidate nation-wide...hmmm...that might be a new thing. The media loved Kennedy and hated Nixon...in my mind that is the last time we have seen such unapologetic concerted bias to support or trash a single candidate.

    well...in all fairness...when the media makes a big deal over something Romney did as a teenager....but doesnt touch the fact that Obama did drugs as a teenager.....

    I really dont see crying over media bias as crying over the dumbest shit.

    Whether the media asissts Obama OR Romeny in getting elected is irrelevant.....but for them to help decide the election? That is a major issue.
