Is Obama Endorsing Marijuana? [Video]

President Obama came out and said that Marijuana is no more harmful than alcohol which sparks the debate on legalizing weed in America. 

 

 

 

“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,” Obama told the New Yorker.

When asked if he believes marijuana is less harmful than alcohol, the President said yes, “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.”

“It’s not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy,” he added.

President Obama goes onto to talk about reforming the laws that punish weed smokers.

“We should not be locking up kids or individual users for long stretches of jail time when some of the folks who are writing those laws have probably done the same thing. It’s important for it to go forward because it’s important for society not to have a situation in which a large portion of people have at one time or another broken the law and only a select few get punished,”
