Obama has his own private stash, so no need to legalize it.

Hey something I actually agree with Obama on. Nothing p-sses me off more than to watch Cops and they're doing a drug sting to catch some punk kid with a dime bag of weed. Talk about a waste of taxpayers money.

Speeding can hurt other people.
When I inhale some smoke, there is only one person that is affected.
