President Obama sat down with The New Yorker’s David Remnick in a long, revealing interview on many topics, including the president’s evolving views on gay marriage and … wait for it, weed:
“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and 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.”
‘Is it less dangerous?’ Remnick asked.
