Obama: pot 'a vice' but no more dangerous than alcohol


"President Barack Obama believes smoking marijuana is a "bad habit" but thinks legal penalties now fall disproportionately on minorities and that states legalizing pot should go ahead with their plans, he said in a profile released on Sunday."

"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," he is quoted as saying in a New Yorker magazine article. "I don't think it is more dangerous than alcohol."

Be pimpin!

I hate to remind his worship that according to the NHTSA, statistics completed as of 2012.

Total fatalities for "Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities" in 2011 were 32,479

Total fatalities for "Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities" in 2012 were 33,561

Thank GOD marijuana is no more dangerous than that.
