Jimmy Kimmel Gets the Entire American Press to Admit Smoking Pot

I don't think we've posted this anywhere yet, and I don't want our negligence to be the reason anyone misses what might be the coolest thing I've seen this year, so better a little late than never:

 

I can't help but gush, because I don't know how Kimmel could have executed this any better. Other than the (unfortunately) obligatory munchie joke, this was perfect. Pointing out that marijuana policy is something "real people care about" and vote for is the message the President needs to hear. Bonus points for making almost everyone in the room admit to having done it. Bravo.

It's Easy

I've never understood why so many people, public figures especially, have no qualms about confessing to a federal crime.  This is a crime that will get you as much, if not more, time than if you committed murder or kidnapping or rape.  Frankly, I'm surprised a candidate would even be eligible to become president after admitting to a federal crime.  If a candidate admitted to robbing a bank, could they still become president?  In the eyes of the feds, that's actually a lesser crime.

"Want to see me commit a federal crime?"

the end is nigh

Seems like Obama just can't escape.

Everywhere he goes someone brings up the issue. 

It's only a matter of time before the drug war is dead.

can't watch video

Please repost the Kimmel video. Link is down.

Not Surprising

Sure, it's easy to get people to admit to these kinds of crimes - when they don't think THEY can get in trouble for it!  Bush and Obama have both admitted to using marijuana and cocaine, and yet they're totally in favor of the War on Drugs.  I wonder when the people in power are going to stop joking about this serious issue and start doing something about it.
