Hmm: Obama May Lure Youth Vote through Pot Legalization

It is time for legalization. Clinton, Obama, and Bush Jr all smoked pot. And Reagan probably did too back in the 30s and 40s when it was legal. He was an actor. If all these presidents have done it then why should ordinary citizens be jailed for it?

You seem to be missing the point that Obama doesn't want to do this for the sake of legalizing pot. He's doing this ONLY to attract younger voters to support him.

Bruce-----you got it all figured out. I love how you've pegged Reagan. Just curious, did he snort coke as well? Inquiring minds want to know.

With President Obama's approval rankings taking a dip, and his head-to-head matchups with Mitt Romney looking awfully close, it may be time for him to break out another secret weapon: pot legalization. So says speculation, at least, drawing comparisons to the Bush campaign's 2004 effort to put gay marriage bans on ballots as a way of motivating the right. Several states will have weed legalization measures on their ballots this fall, and the Democrats are hoping this will energize the youth.

This year there's another incumbent president with modest approval ratings who could turn out his base...
