The new biography, “Barack Obama,The Story” by David Maraniss is grabbing headlines with details of his pot-smoking past in Hawaii. Maraniss claims that Obama wasn’t just an occasional smoker, but part of a legitimate crew of marijuana enthusiasts called the Choom Gang.

Ironically those that are most critical of his past drug experience aren’t those that think this behavior was deplorable; they are in fact criticizing his continuing war on drugs in the present.
