President Obama hasn't hidden the fact that he smoked weed long before coming to office, and residents of Colorado — where marijuana is now legal — are happily embracing that. At a Denver bar last night, one patron asked Obama if he was interested in taking a legal toke. "You want to hit this?" the patron shouted. The exchange is captured on Instagram, including Obama's reply: a quick laugh while moving on to greet others. The answer may have been a "no," but that wasn't so discouraging: "Asked him if he wanted a hit of pot," the patron wrote on Instagram. "He laughed! #legalizeit #iinhaled."
