Not Gin & Juice but weed at White House

WASHINGTON — Weed isn't this legal in Washington yet.

In an episode of his online show "GGN: The Double G News Network" that just went live, Snoop Dogg claimed he smoked Mary Jane in a White House bathroom.

Though Mr. Dogg did not explicitly say so, the implication was that President Barack Obama was not there when the rapper toked up. For the record: Obama recently turned down pot at a bar in Denver — though, if it's relevant, he has been known to dodge questions about whether he smokes cigarettes of the non-marijuana variety in the White House.

Dogg's revelation came in an exchange with guest Jimmy Kimmel. Try to follow along:

Kimmel: Have you ever smoked at the White House?

Dogg [smoking what appears to be a marijuana blunt]: In the bathroom.

Kimmel: You did? In the White House.

Dogg: In the bathroom. Not in the White House — but in the bathroom. Because I said, "May I use the bathroom for a second?" And they said,"What are you going to do? No. 1 or No. 2?" I said, "No. 2."

Kimmel: Who said this? The first lady?

Dogg: No. The CIA. Or the FBI. The alphabet boys. So I said, "Look, when I do the No. 2, I usually, you know, have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right." They said, "You know what? You can light a piece of napkin." I said, "I'll do that." And the napkin was this. [indicates blunt]

Kimmel: This is some story.

USA Today confirmed that the man once known as Calvin Broadus was at the White House ahead of the ‘Kennedy Centre Honours‘ in December.

So: The man had the means, motive and opportunity.

If Dogg did indeed get lit in a bathroom at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with the permission of an unspecified government security agency, this would not be the executive branch's first experiment with marijuana.
