President Obama on Tuesday was in Denver aka the “Mile High City”- a state which had recently legalized recreational marijuana.
As he was in the city to connect with voters and spending the night being just an “ordinary guy” with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, one excited patron in a local bar Obama visited offered him some weed but the President played cool, laughed, and shrugged it off.
The whole transaction was recorded in an Instagram video that was uploaded to the social media site with the caption,
“Asked him if he wanted a hit of pot…he laughed! #legalizeit #iinhaled #mrGQ”
He may have turned it down but Obama is no stranger to weed. In his autobiographical book Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance he admits to having smoked his fair share of the sticky icky as a teenager growing up in Hawaii. He has since spoken out against those actions saying that they were “bad choices.”
