Obama's pot reform goes up in smoke
Placeholder Image
I would shrug and say “So what?” to the latest details from President Barack Obama’s pot-smoking past, except for one thing: he stirred so much hope as a candidate for sensible marijuana policy reforms but, as president, has delivered so little change. David Maraniss brings all that back to mind with his forthcoming book, “Barack Obama: The Story,” which has been leaking like a sieve to major media in advance of its publication. Published accounts of his days at Punahou, the private Hawaiian prep school that Obama attended in the 1970s, make the future president sound like a classic stoner.
