Jimmy Kimmel to Obama: “What’s With the Marijuana Crackdown?”


At the 98th annual dinner of the White House Correspondents’ Association on Saturday, comedian Jimmy Kimmel asked the president straight up: “What’s with the marijuana crackdown? I mean, seriously, what is the concern? We will deplete the nation’s Funyuns supply?” Kimmel continued, “You know, pot smokers vote, too. Sometimes a week after the election, but they vote.”

Then turning to Obama, Kimmel said: “Mr. President, I hope you don’t think I am out of line, but marijuana is something that real people care about. And the fact that you believe Speaker Boehner when he tells you he still has control of his party leads me to believe that you must be smoking some crazy-great weed yourself.”
