Daily Talker: President Obama Talks About Marijuana

President Barack Obama doesn’t think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol.

In an interview with “The New Yorker” magazine, the president talked about his use of pot in the past. “I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
