Snoop Dogg says he smoked marijuana in the White House — without Obama

Warning: This video contains profanity and drug use — and unsubstantiated claims of smoking marijuana at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.

Weed isn’t this legal in D.C. 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 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 Center Honors in December.

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

If Dogg did indeed get lit in a bathroom at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. with the permission of an unspecified government security agency, this would not be the executive branch’s first experiment with marijuana. As everyone with a NORML bumpersticker knows, Presidents Washington and Jefferson grew hemp.

The White House has canceled the president's scheduled appearance on the late-night television show “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday that there are "more serious" international issues to address. (Reuters)
