President Obama's Image High-Jacked for Pot Ad

3/2/2010 2:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama is now the poster child for an upcoming pot party celebrating his first year in office. Only problem: No one asked his high-ness for permission before Photoshopping a fake joint in his mouth.

President Obama's Image High-Jacked for Pot Ad

The ganja gala is set to go down this weekend in L.A. -- and according to the ad, marijuana patients are going to "celebrate Obama ending DEA raids" on weed stores.

A rep for the White House told TMZ there's a longstanding policy "disapproving of the use of the President's name and likeness for commercial purposes" -- but the rep wouldn't say if the Photoshoppin' potheads were going to face legal action over the ad.

Either way ... we're guessing the wave of paranoia that's about to engulf the tokers responsible for messing with the Most Powerful Man on the Planet will be punishment enough.

i think this ad is disrespectful. i enjoy a little 420 once in a while and i have no problems with legalizing it but this has gone too far.

AT least he admitted it . Bush was a coke head draft dodging daddys boy , who ran this country to the ground ! and NOW he expects someone to clean up his mess . Whatever , i'd rather have my president admit he smokes weed , than admit he started a war and NEVER found weapons of mass destruction. seems like YOU have the selective memory ! ignorant a**!

This is plain out right stupid and does in no represents "true medical cannabis patients". I'm tired of these "stoners" using medical cannabis as a shield for their illegal BS.

who has the facts? ME    

I'm all for legalizing pot, but the ad is disrespctful.
And before all you righties start in about Obama's drug use, let's not forget the drunken, coke-fueled exploits of little Bushie 41.
Most in this country have smoked pot at one time or another in their lives, personally I think it's safer than booze...
Smoking pot - big deal.
