Penn Jillette Attacks Obama Over Hypocritical Marijuana Laws


Obamaby Monterey Bud

He’s been called a lot of things in his life… a critical thinker — a comedian — a liberal pundit — not to mention an honorary member of the stoner community. Well it looks like Penn Jillette is tired of being relegated to the back of the social bus for his marijuana use. Mr. Jillette fired up a heroic diatribe regarding his views on President Obama’s civil liberties crushing administration and Obama’s two-faced take on marijuana laws in the U.S.

Essentially the Obama administration has been speaking out of both sides of their collective face — Penn went on to point out the lack of continuity between State and Federal marijuana laws. Lashing out at President “O” on his podcast “Sunday School”, Penn bluntly noted how ludicrous our federal government is for going after medical marijuana collectives in states that allow for it and the punitive nature of our outdated legal system.

“Do we believe, even for a second, anybody believe that if Obama had been busted for marijuana, under the laws that he condones, would his life have been better? … If he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard fucking time. And if he had done time in prison, time in federal prison, time for his ‘weed’ and ‘a little blow,’ he would not be President of the United States of America. He would not have gone to his fancy ass college. He would not have sold books that sold millions and millions of copies and made millions and millions of dollars. He would not have a beautiful, smart wife. He would not have a great job. He would have been in fucking prison, and it’s not a god damn joke! People who smoke marijuana must be set free. It is insane to lock people up.” [source]

    I tripple dare anyone to read Ron Paul’s book End The Fed.  Then come back, look me in the eye, and tell me that the main stream media has painted an accurate picture of him. 
    I have never even heard of anyone that has taken this challenge say they agree with the main stream media about him.  NOT ONE!

    BTW, Dr Paul has never tried the ganja, but he would allow states to legalize it. 

  2. A “Snap Quiz” on American History at the polling place would solve most of our problems with the “Dumber than a Box of Rocks” voters in our society.
    The brain dead would be turned away.And let’s stop letting dead people vote.
    Holder should be in jail.

  3. And yet I’d bet anything I own that the majority reading this (especially here) will still vote for him. It’s not the candidates that elect themselves and that’s exactly the problem – the ignorance of the voting masses. Obama is just a symptom of what ails us collectively and to show for it we have the Govt we really deserve….

  4. “not to mention a stoner of epic proportions.”
    Says who?  He himself says he’s never smoked marijuana.  How does that make Penn Jillette a stoner of any proportion?
