President Biden Legalizes Cannabis After Smoking with Cheech & Chong and Enjoying White Castle
Washington D.C. - In a surprise move, President Joe Biden announced today that he had signed an executive order legalizing cannabis nationwide after smoking with famous stoners Cheech & Chong.
According to sources close to the President, Biden initially hesitated to try marijuana, citing concerns about the drug's effects on his health and mental acuity. However, after a night of smoking with the legendary comedic duo and enjoying White Castle burgers, the President reportedly had a change of heart.
"I gotta say, man, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be," Biden allegedly told his advisors. "I mean, I'm not saying I'm gonna start smoking every day or anything, but maybe it's time we stop treating cannabis like it's the devil's lettuce."
Biden explained that he was inspired by the 2004 film "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," in which two stoners embark on a quest to satisfy their craving for fast food.
"I always thought it was just a silly movie, but after last night, I realized that maybe there's more to it than that," he said.
The President's decision has been met with mixed reactions, with some praising the move as a step towards ending the war on drugs and others expressing concern about the potential impact on public health and safety.
Cheech & Chong, meanwhile, released a joint statement (no pun intended) expressing their delight at the President's change of heart.
"We always knew Joe was a cool dude, man," the statement read. "We're just glad we could help him see the light."
It remains to be seen how this will impact the political landscape moving forward, but for now, it seems like the President and his new buds are enjoying the ride.
