A comedian has openly speculated as to whether or not President Obama has a personal reason to support changes in drug policy.
In a recent episode of his podcast “Penn’s Sunday School,” comedian Penn Jillette laid his opinions on the Obama drug policies out on the table.
Jillette, who has never done drugs or drank alcohol in his life, expressed particular concern over the policies’ broad-sweeping, all-inclusive nature. Namely, that people are going to prison because of marijuana use.
“Now, he has not left this to states’ rights,” Jillette posited. “As you know, medical marijuana… you can get in California, and the feds are coming in to try to stop this. States’ rights don’t mean jack sh*t to the Obama administration on anything except gay marriage.”
Another point of contention for Jillette was the fact that President Obama mentionedthat he had smoked “weed” and done “maybe a little blow” in his 1995 book “Dreams from my Father.”
