11 Presidents who loved cannabis - we're just as surprised as you!

11 Presidents who loved cannabis - we're just as surprised as you!

Welcome High Society Historians,

You may need to sit down for this article as we unveil the highs and lows of presidential encounters with the cannabis . From the cool cats to the stern skeptics, let's explore the kaleidoscope of cannabis moments in the hallowed halls of power.

  1. Barack Obama (2009-2017): Our coolest commander, Barack Obama, spilled the beans on his youthful puffing adventures. "When I was a kid, I inhaled, frequently. That was the point," he dropped casually during his '08 campaign. Talk about presidential transparency!
  2. George W. Bush (2001-2009): Dubya might've been tight-lipped about his marijuana memoirs, but behind closed doors, he admitted to some shady shenanigans. "I wouldn't answer the marijuana questions. You know why? Because I don't want some little kid doing what I tried," he spilled to biographer Douglas Wead. Sneaky, Dubya!
  3. Bill Clinton (1993-2001): Slick Willie danced with Mary Jane, but he insisted, "I didn't inhale and never tried it again." Classic Clintonian charm! Rumor has it; he had a sweet spot for pot brownies at Oxford. Talk about a non-committal relationship!
  4. Jimmy Carter (1977-1981): Jimmy insists he's THC-free, but his son Chip and Willie Nelson sparked up on the White House roof. Chip, living his best life!
  5. John F. Kennedy (1961-1963): JFK, dealing with back pain, toked up with Mary Meyer. Picture this: Kennedy puffin' on joints. "Suppose the Russians did something now," he pondered after the third one. Crisis averted, Mr. President!
  6. Franklin Pierce (1853-1857): President Pierce, during the Mexican-American War, passed the peace pipe with troops. A toke of unity!
  7. Zachary Taylor (1849-1850): General Taylor toked with his troops. Who says military discipline can't be chill?
  8. Andrew Jackson (1829-1837): Old Hickory, smokin' out with the troops. Can you imagine? War and peace, my friends.
  9. James Madison (1809-1817): The "Father of the Constitution" credited hemp for political enlightenment. Puff, puff, pass the constitutional wisdom!
  10. Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809): Hemp farmer Jefferson smuggled potent seeds, making him a founding father of both liberty and lit vibes.
  11. George Washington (1789-1797): The OG president cultivated hemp and possibly indulged in THC-rich sessions. Founding father, farmer, and friend of the flower!

Rolling through history, we've seen presidents light up, play it cool, or steer clear of the herbal haze. As we blaze through the presidential chronicles, let's tip our hats to these leaders—some laid-back, some buttoned-up—each with a unique relationship with cannabis.
