“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” President Obama told David Remnick in a forthcoming New Yorker piece. “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
“So congratulations again to the Blackhawks. To the Bulls, Bears, Cubs — I am term-limited, so you guys have got to get moving. I need to see you here soon. Championships belong in Chicago.

Q: If you could shadow any designer for a day, who would it be?
A: Betsey Johnson
Q: Would you be a better center fielder for the Nats or point guard for the Wizards?
A: Hitting a baseball is nearly impossible at the professional level. That’s why we should forgive Pete Rose. I’d put him on the $3 bill if I could.
Q: How do you handle stressful situations and working under pressure?
A: The first job I ever had I got paid $3.35 an hour to mop puke (and worse) out of a McDonald’s bathroom. All jobs since then have paid more and were far more fun. Any time I feel stress at work I think this is still more fun than that.
Q: What was the first Grateful Dead song to really flip your wig?
A: I’ve always been fascinated by Friend of the Devil. It was playing in the car when i was little and my mom turned it off. Is it wicked? Is it super loving? Who knows? Recently I heard Tom Petty cover it in LA and I thought it was fantastic.
