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.

Mr. Ed Forchion (the other individual on the poster), aka, NJWEEDMAN, is himself Afro-American, so please don't argue racism on his part. He is dedicated to the cause of de-criminalization of marijuana in the United States, and has backed up his words by going to prison for his beliefs. This image may be considered political satire, and within Mr. Forchion's right to use in this manner. Bad taste, if that is another argument against the poster, is NOT grounds for prosecution.

Lighten up, America. Light up, if that is your preference.

Obama is not a god.

He smokes cigarettes IN the White House, a NO SMOKING ZONE by law.

Prosecute him.

Obama knows some good weed when he sees it. I bet he tokes up to relax. Bush didn't and we all know what he looked like at the end of his term.

Seriously, WHY SHOULD WE CARE? HONESTLY!?!?!I bet you can't even watch 6 minutes of this without crying.

Honestly, if you can watch even 6 minutes of this WITHOUT crying i'll PERSONALLY send you 25.00 with paypal.

While NJWeedman's poster may appear to be like an insult to our President & this country, I believe that the thought behind the message has been misunderstood by the media~Hence the public opinion at large.



Here's what feel when I SEE that poster:



(#1.) Cannabis is NOT a Drug~IT IS AN HERB.
(#2.) Marijuana Laws NEED to BE CHANGED~The SAME IN EVERY STATE of USA.
(#3.) NJWeedman HAS HOPE.



Have a wonderful today.
