What if this man had been criminally charged?

The most powerful man in the world, US President Barack Obama freely admitted during the 2008 election campaign that he inhaled, frequently, as a child. If he had been caught and criminally charged, he would not be President, it is as simple as that. The video below shows Obama talking about his recreational drug use as a young adult (skip to 0:57).  Do you think Barack Obama is a criminal? Does his teenage curiosity reflect his greater worth as a person? Leave your opinion below in the comments!

One thought on “What if this man had been criminally charged?

    This reminds me of a point made in today’s Media Portfolio lecture, where TechLife editor Tony Sarno stated that he would employ a journalist regardless of their history with drugs. I feel that whether or not someone dabbled with recreational drugs in their teenage years has absolutely no impact on their work ethic or leadership skills. Obviously if Barack Obama was currently a methamphetamine addict it would be a different story but frankly i’d be more surprised if he had never come into contact with drugs!
