"President" Obama on Drugs
Obama has written about his drug use before in his memoir, Dreams from My Father. "Junkie. Pothead. That's where I'd been headed: the final fatal role of the young would be black man," Obama wrote. Mostly he smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, Obama wrote, but occasionally he would SNORT COCAINE when he could afford it. Drugs, Obama wrote, were a way he "could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory." I wonder how he would react to the pressures of the Presidency? But Obama rarely talks about the drug use on the campaign trail. Of course not, but the McCain campaign should!
