ABC News’ Sunlen Miller Reports: Democratic candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.,
spoke candidly Tuesday about experimenting with drugs while he was in high
school at surprise stop at Manchester Central High School in New Hampshire.
“I made some bad decisions … You know, got into drinking and experimenting
with drugs, there was a whole stretch of time where I didn’t apply myself,”
Obama confessed to the study hall class.
This story is buried on the ABC news site which is pretty amazing. Barack is admitting to the commission of multiple felonious acts. The lack of media attention shows how the public knows that drug crimes and or drug use does not make one unfit for public office. So why is possession still a felony?
It is time we told the truth about drug use. Many Americans use drugs at some point in their lives and….. nothing happens. They move on and lead productive ordinary lives. Why do we continue a policy that would have made Barack Obama a felon at an early age?
The only thing that separates Barack and George W. Bush from your typical drug felon is that they did not get caught. It is time we saw Prohibition for what it is, as “unlucky lottery” too often “won” by the poor and politically powerless.
