The American politician and businessman; George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946), the 46th governor of Texas (1995 - 2000) and the 43RD POTUS (2001 - 2009), was known as a cocaine user in his younger days, but he’s always been reluctant to answer questions about whether or not he ever smoked #Weed!

In a private Conversation that was taped without Bush’s knowledge, he told his biographer Douglas Wead (Between 1997 and 2000, Wead secretly recorded several hours of phone conversations between himself and George W. Bush):

"I wouldn’t answer the marijuana question. You know why? Cause I don’t want some little kid doing what I tried. You gotta understand, I want to be president, I want to lead. Do you want your little kid to say: Hey daddy, President Bush tried marijuana, I think I will !"

Something this president probably said while high: "I swear to God, for a second there, I totally forgot what the 'W' stood for."

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good: On Tonight Show With Jay Leno, he talks about smoking pot when he was younger.

The Bad: According to the Drug Policy Alliance:

The era of George W. Bush witnessed the rapid escalation of the militarization of domestic drug law enforcement. By the end of Bush’s term, there were about 40,000 paramilitary-style SWAT raids on Americans every year—mostly for nonviolent drug law offenses, often misdemeanors.

He also said: Legalizing Marijuana is a big mistake!

The Ugly: Bush campaigned on saying Medical Marijuana should be left up to the states, a point he pivoted on after being elected. Furthermore, the administration allowed multiple raids on patients and dispensaries in legal states.

Bush and Kush ... lol..

Never liked this guy, looks like he is constantly reads from a script.

Stellar as always:)

I was suspecting him to be :D

Good afternoon, good article .. Waiting for an article about Trump.

Yet another US president that has used cannabis yet continued oppressing cannabis users, nevermind the illegal wars in Iraq/Afghanistan which massively destabilised these regions.

That said he's got some funny quotes, not the worst president 🤷‍♂️

By the way, The Prophet Of Choom coming soon...
