This Is What Happens When You Offer President Obama A Joint



You’ve got to be pretty gutsy to offer a joint to one of the most powerful men in the world, but this guy did. Obama was on an off-schedule stop in Denver, Colorado, when he was offered the drug which is legal in the state.

Obama managed to laugh off the potentially awkward moment earlier this week when he was asked “do you wanna hit this?” by someone offering him marijuana.

The generous offer was captured on video and posted on Instagram and is now being watched by millions worldwide.

Obama has previously admitted being a member of the “Choom Gang” when he was at high school and adopted various techniques to get high.

Nowadays, however, his stance has changed somewhat and he described “bad choices” that he made in the past. Obama handled it well though, laughing at the man before moving on to shake hands with more people.

Writing about Obama’s previous drug use, biographer David Maraniss said: “When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted ‘Intercepted!’ and took an extra hit.”

Whilst at the bar he played pool and met with locals including the sister of a soldier who died in Afghanistan.
