I dedicate this article to my late, great father who would be rolling over right now if he saw this in the paper.  A President t  basically saying that marijuana is kinda-sortsa OK.  What say YOU? 

According to an article at the wire.com, Obama made a statement in the New Yorker magazine that are kind of "eyebrow raising".

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.

I'm not commenting either way on his politics.  That's not the point here.  It could be ANY President.  Do you think he basically said it's "kinda sorta OK to smoke pot"?  And if so, how do you feel about that?   (I'm biting my tongue hard right now)  Take our poll…. I will post the results during the week.  (Of course if you are toking while reading this, you probably don't care)
