In A User’s Guide To Smoking Pot With Barack Obama Buzzfeed offers excerpts from a new biography of the President, Barack Obama: The Story by David Maraniss coming out in June. Here’s one describing the future President’s activities in high school with the Choom Gang, a group of friends at Punahou School who enjoyed basketball, “good times,” and marijuana:
As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called “TA,” short for “total absorption.” To place this in the physical and political context of another young man who would grow up to be president, TA was the antithesis of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled.
Jump forward a few decades and a President who campaigned on leaving state-approved medicinal marijuana alone now unleashes the federal government to bust dispensaries.
