After President Obama said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” it was just a matter of time before someone brought up the marijuana-use connection.
Conservative radio host Sean Hannity was right on it during his radio show Friday afternoon.
Now the president’s saying Trayvon could’ve been me thirty-five years ago. This is a particularly helpful comment. Is that the president admitting that—I guess because, what, he was part of the Choom Gang and he smoked pot and he did a little blow? I’m not sure how to interpret that, because we know that Trayvon had been smoking pot that night. I’m not sure what that means.
It came out during the trial that Trayvon Martin had THC – the active ingredient in marijuana – in his blood the night he was killed.
As to Obama’s Choom Gang, that was reportedly the name of the group of friends he smoked marijuana with back in his high school days in Hawaii.
