Many politicians on the Democratic side have admitted to smoking pot at one time or another. Hardly any Republicans have admitted to this. When asked if he inhaled, Barack Obama said "Yes I inhaled, and I inhaled frequently, that was the point." John McCain has said he has never tried it.

My question is, does it make a difference to you if a Presidential candidate has smoked marijuana? I personally don't care, if anything, it can help them realize that some pot isn't as devilish and evil and mom and dad America have been saying for oh so many years.

Poll on the way.

This thread started on an invalid point.

Clinton said he didn't inhale and Bush said he did. I'm a democrat and all for pot smoking but it seems that it's the other way. Of course Mccain never tried it because he was in the military during Vietnam so he was brought up anti-drug.

skeevy stoners who get addicted to weed and become a drain on society make marijuana look dangerous. as far as drugs go, marijuana is about the least harmless, while alcohol is one of the most dangerous. i'm sure most republicans have had a drink or two in their lifetimes.

Hence the "Hardly any republicans..." During the large, group, debates leading up the the primaries, the democrats had a resounding yes on that question, while the republicans had only one or two.

Yeah, because soldiers never took any drugs during Vietnam.

Yes! The world would be a great place if everyone smoked.

I find that I feel the same about women who play bass as I think of immigrants in America.

I respect them for finding a place in society under a lot of ridicule, but I have an odd paranoia that they are going to steal my job.

Yeah actually a quarter of the soldiers were addicted to heroin.


But that's heroin, not pot.

Bet you thought you were cool for that one huh?


EDIT: Oh yeah, McCain was in the Air force, not a soldier.
#12
No. Because they won't do it today. They won't even smoke cigarettes in the office to preserve the clean image needed for presidency.

Also, I am adamantly against the drug culture and lifestyle.
#13
If they smoked pot and admit doing it, more respect to them. And if they never did, it's all gravy.


It's not like it'll affect how well they control the country.

That still doesn't support your argument that being in the Vietnam war made him antidrug...

Too bad plenty of them smoked pot.

My dad smoked pot in Vietnam, among other things.

I didn't say being in the Vietnam war made him anti drug. Being raised into the military made him anti drug. The soldiers in Vietnam that used heroin were almost entirely draftees.

It wouldn't affect me even if I lived in the States and actually could give a damn.

But then again if it would affect me, it would affect me only when the candidate admitted (s)he had done it. To me it would show the person values honesty and truth a little bit more than his/her image.

Don't care if they've used it or not. Would like them to legalize some stuff just so they spend less of my tax money trying to prevent harmless and victimless "crimes".

It's incredibly sad seeing how those soldier's lives were affected coming back from the war still addicted to the stuff.


Good thing that's not happening with Afghanistan and the amount of poppy being grown there. (before someone tries to act like a smart ass I know poppy production is way down and they're replacing those fields with pot fields)

If I still smoked I'd pass the bong around with Dubya. I bet that dude's freakin hilarious when I'm/he's stoned. I mean he cracks me up when I'm/he's sober.

As far as the McCain thing...I wouldn't doubt for a second that he did some sort of drugs in NAM. Hell, he crashed 5 planes. He had to of been on something.

This guy was 5th from the bottom of his class at the Academy. Come on now, if his father and grandfather weren't Admirals he woulda gone freakin' nowhere.

(I also realized that people who are on drugs think that everyone else is also on drugs).

And no, I don't care if the president smoked pot as long as he doesn't lie about it (though I lied about it on some of my applications and they weren't exactly for the presidency )
