Photos: Top ten politicians who've smoked pot

Number 2: Sarah Palin

Onetime Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hasn't exactly quavered when folks have quizzed her about pot, as is clear in this excerpt from an AOL News article headlined, "Sarah Palin: Smoking Pot is No Big Deal:"
Has the former Republican vice presidential candidate ever lit up a joint?

You betcha. In Alaska, it was legal to smoke small amounts of marijuana until four years ago, and Palin has said that she's tried it but didn't like it.

"I can't claim a Bill Clinton and say that I never inhaled," she told the Anchorage Daily News in 2006.

Number 1: Bill Clinton

During the 1992 presidential race, supporters of President George H.W. Bush pummeled Clinton with character issues, suggesting that he'd dodged the draft to get out of Vietnam War service and had partaken in the demon weed. Clinton famously attempted to squash the latter rumors by saying that people during his youth may have thought he'd smoked marijuana, but he'd only pretended to do so and "didn't inhale."

Yet none of them were pig-ignorant bong-sucking semi-literate stoners ...

... with the possible exception of G aWol Bu$h.

Now how about that list of Politicians who did cocaine ?


Wouldn't it be easier to list those who haven't ?

Who in office didn't attend college ?


"My fellow citizens, I may belong to the Choom Gang but I literally don't care about your welfare. I have a military/pharmaceutical/prison industrial complex–and it's various components–to support. So regardless of how you may feel or what you may wish, my problems will always trump your problems. I trust you will allow me to remain untainted and untouched by the unconscionable acts that I have committed on your behalf."

Sincerely yours,

President Barak Obama
