In this video entertainer and Libertarian commentator Penn Jillette and Michael Goudeau talk about President Barack Obama's appearance on Jimmy Fallon and his confession of previous drug use.
Penn considered President Obama’s views on marijuana laws in the country to be very hypocritical. According to him it is ridiculous that medical marijuana is completely legal in California but that federal police can still catch and book you for it. He pointed out that Obama has made it clear that he used drugs in his past, and asked if the President’s life would have been any better if he had been busted under his own laws.
Even though over ten states now allow some form of marijuana for medicinal purposes, the federal government still bans the plant for the entire U.S.
This highly charged video of Penn Jillette slamming the president for his drug war policies and for infringing upon states’ rights has quickly gone viral, amassing close to 200,000 views already.
