FLASHBACK: Choom Gang President Votes for Self at Precisely 4:20

Wishing notorious pothead Barack Obama a safe and happy holiday

April 20, 2023

Today is April 20, sometimes referred to as "4/20," defined by Wikipedia as "an international counterculture holiday based on the celebration and consumption of cannabis."

To honor the occasion, we are reminiscing about the time President Barack H. Obama—former member of the "Choom Gang," a Honolulu-based marijuana syndicate—voted for himself at precisely 4:20 p.m. local time in Chicago on October 25, 2012.

This historic moment will echo in eternity thanks to the Washington Free Beacon's unrivaled journalistic and social media prowess. "Choom Gang commander in chief votes for self at precisely 4:20," the official Free Beacon Twitter account observed at 5:21 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Obama, who also admitted using cocaine and eating dog meat, was the first sitting president to vote early in a national election. He was required to provide photo identification to vote.

Happy 4/20 to all who celebrate!
