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 feel bad for the righties who will bet all fired up over this, while they themselves will just pop a Xanax or Vicodin... or Valium or any other list of pretty pills the rich love to eat like candy. No body OD's on pot, want to get rid of the deficiet .. make it legal, regulate it like booze, tax it. Problem solved.

He's already ruined the country; might as well legalize pot. And this poster should go a long ways to helping his sinking image LMAO.

This ad gives the entire MMJ community a bad name.

It's not even the least bit creative to begin with.

i agree it gives the mmj community a bad name because were already having to fight city council AND that story on cbs2 last night in LA about fake mmj docs handing out recs for cash doesnt help real patients either. Im 27 and a mmj patient, and a republican...gasp! i am not a casual toker i use it instead of 14 mg of morphine every 4 to 6 hours....i have a life now, thanks to mmj. i get crap all the time, cuz i look healthy...i look healthy, because cannabis saved my life. i can hold down food and have a good outlook on life and dealing with my illness now. morphine and a hospital bed didnt do that for me.

on the other hand, Obamas a jerk and not someone to look up to or say hes doing a great job....my 68 year old father still has to put in 60 hours a week because his retirement is worth half now and he only gets to bank half his checks now to boot. TAX and REGULATE CANNABIS in 2010!!!!! save the lausd jobs and not only fix the budget, create a surplus!

Funny how was Bush was in office he was "free game" to all types of bashing. Obama has dodged several bouts of criticism due to fear of being called a racist. Fact for fact ...he will go down as one of the worst presidents in history and his color will have no bearing on the title. Anyone who "celebrates" this guy first year of "success" has probably been smoking the wacky weed all year long, so I guess in a way, the photo depicts a pretty accurate meaning. This president is America's mistake that will be corrected 2012 guaranteed.

1. It's always 4:20 somewhere!

On the other note, let's introduce all the right-wing idiots who are most definitely going to be commenting on the Prez very shortly...
Just a note though, you voted in a coke-head and alcoholic... Enough said.... Good nite!

Actually, Obama is the coke head. He admitted it in his book. And I don't recall Bush being told to drink alcohol in "moderation" during his annual physical as President. Obama is as stupid as he looks. I'm so glad he's failing at every turn!! :)

Maybe that explains why Obama sounds like a belligerent drunk every time he attempts to speak without his telepromter.
