How did Obama pay for his marijuana as a teenager?
He does not smoke it any more, and hasn't smoked it for many years. During high school, he went through a period of rebellion, and was hanging with a group of students who fre…quently smoked marijuana, and also experimented with cocaine. Mr. Obama has never hidden from this period of his life and has written about it in his autobiography. He has said it is not something he is proud of doing. Fortunately, he was still a good student, and he never got arrested or suspended. But his grandparents and his mother were undoubtedly displeased when they found out about his use of drugs, since that is not how they raised him. Eventually, when he got to college, he decided to stop using them and focus on his studies.
He wants to stop federal criminalization and legalize medical marijuana (as in California) nationwide. He does not want to make it "legal" though.. He does not intend to leag…lize it at all, he mearly wants to decriminalize it so the individual state can legalize it or tax it as a source of revenue
That's a question for a different forum. It depends on your parents and their ideals and ideology and income.
He paid for some of it. Mr. Obama's Harvard education was partly paid for by grants, as well as by student loans; he also paid for some of it with money he saved during the fi…ve years he worked full-time prior to attending graduate school. Mr. Obama has noted that it took him a number of years to finally pay off his student loans. There are some internet myths that claim he was given financial aid based on his race, or that some wealthy Muslim diplomat paid for his education. These claims are false and have been thoroughly disproved by fact-checkers.
ZERO..NADA...ZILCH the staff are paid by taxpayers on a line budget ! The President doesn't pay anything out of his salary for subsistance which includes food, travel, parti…es and whitehouse functions ! Its all paid by taxpayers.
Barack Obama worked at Baskin-Robbins during his teen years.
no they wont..
He paid nothing, since it never happened. This is an internet myth, spread by Donald Trump and some other people who are opposed to the president. Mr. Obama's records are not …"sealed"-- which can only be done by a court; Mr. Obama was not involved in a criminal case and thus, his records were not sealed by a judge. In fact, his school records and his medical records are private because they are protected by the same federal law that has protected other presidents: no-one is under any obligation to release such personal records unless they choose to do so. Most presidents have not released those records, and not doing so doesn't mean the person has anything to hide. And it should be noted that President Obama has released a number of other records, including the past six years of his tax returns.
Free ride on taxpayers backs.
Barack Obama paid for college with student loans, scholarships, grants, student jobs and the help of his grandparents. Both he and wife Michelle finished paying off their …loans as recent as last year.
Just some info on how Obahma paid for his education The question makes me furious because it has a racial undertone. It infers that since Obahma is black he had his educatio…n handed to him for free. Why is it that when I do a Google search on "How did McCain pay for his education?" - I find no hits. I do find a lot of links indicating that McCain's views on education and this important one showing how they are trying to distort Obahma's position on sex education to make him appear extreme. Per Obahma's book Audacity of Hope, p194 "Where Americans do need help, immediately, is in managing the rising cost of college-- something with which Michelle and I are all too familiar (for the first ten years of our marriage, our combined monthly payments on our undergraduate and law school debt exceeded our mortgage by a healthy margin)." Link --which explains why McCain add portraying Obahma's position on sex education is extreme. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/11/us/politics/11checkpoint.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss&oref=slogin Link on education policies-- I haven't read, but it looks good. http://gabemakes5.wordpress.com/2008/09/10/obama-vs-mccain-on-education/ Thanks, Arun Arun where does it mention race in the question. That's the problem with people. It's not in the question it's the people who always want it to be about race and that my friend is you. Rethink how you think and that will bring people together. Correction: I think you at best just 'feel'; it's the common denominator of most on the left when short of fact. You rather 'feel' something is so- rather than 'think' or know it is so. At worst you lie. Anyone who Googles 'McCain + education' will find too numerous to count references to his matriculation at a Service Academy- THE Naval Academy and of course there is NO 'money' TUITION to be paid by anyone. IF any payment is later extracted it's paid in blood and broken body parts. IE. getting shot out of the sky, beaten, broken and tortured for 5 yrs in Hanoi. Got it now, Comrade? Kahuna3000
I live in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I was informed by my primary care physician that she was unable to sign the required Doctor Forms necessary to complete the Medical Marij…uana Certification process. Further more, even their cancer patients were given the either/or option of Prescription Drugs or Medical Marijuana. This restriction imposed on all Physicians or Clinics receiving Federal Funding. The answer is clearly know No.
well sir it depends on how much you get and how good of a hook you have. you should pay no more than 20 dollars for a gram. half eights go for 25 and they usually give you abo…ut a 1.7 eights can be anwhere from 35 for 65 dollars depending on how good the weed is ot going to kill you so start
Marijuana can be addictive to anybody, regardless of age. Marijuana is not physically addictive -- meaning, a round-the-clock user who suddenly quits will not suffer physical… withdrawal symptoms. They won't get sick, the way an alcoholic or a heroin addict gets sick when they suddenly stop using. However, like most drugs, it makes you feel good, so it can be psychologically addictive. Regular users can build up a tolerance to it. They become so accustomed to being on the drug, that they actually feel normal when they're on it, and they feel distinctly abnormal when they stop. It doesn't matter what your age is; anyone can potentially become addicted to marijuana. Some people are just born addicts. They just can't do any drug without getting addicted to it. Others have this kind of personality to a more limited extent -- they have a tendency to drink or do drugs to excess, but are able to keep themselves from becoming full-blown addicts. But usually, people develop drug addictions because they are depressed and unhappy with their lives, and are self-medicating to feel better. So, the people who are most at risk of becoming drug addicts are those who have this addictive personality, and those who suffer from depression or other types of psychological illess (like bipolar disorder).
Actually the above is not totally true. The President, as a federal employee, is automatically enrolled in the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) system. This is a p…artially subsidized health plan similar to those offered by corporations- the employee pays a portion which is automatically deducted from their paychecks, and the government pays the rest (about 70% if memory serves). The plan also covers his spouse and children. All federal employees except military and postal employees are in the FEHB system, including myself. Congress used to be on the plan but Senator Grassley (R-IA) added an amendment to the ACA which forced Congressmen and their staffers off FEHB, and requires them to use the new exchanges system. Like anyone else, the President can choose to forgo this coverage and buy his own plan, but he would be required to pay for it entirely by himself, without the subsidies.
