NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—President Obama is about to issue an executive order that would force all Americans to purchase a monthly supply of marijuana, the Fox News Channel reported today.

According to Fox’s Sean Hannity, who broke the story, Obama’s initiative is part of a broader plan to make weed available and affordable to every individual in the United States.

Under Obama’s plan, every American would be required to purchase a government-mandated amount of marijuana per month or face a penalty of up to two thousand dollars.

Hannity said that the President hopes to have the mandatory marijuana plan up and running by 2015, “but they’re still working on the Web site.”

Appearing on Fox, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) took issue with Obama’s recent remark that marijuana was no more dangerous than alcohol: “I saw that as an insult.”

Got a big chuckle out of this. Andy's so funny.!! Thanks, Kit for this.
BTW, in Texas re: pot: In a recent poll, 58 percent of Texans said they supported making marijuana legal for adults, and taxing and regulating like alcohol. And 61 percent support reducing possession of a small amount of marijuana to a civil penalty, similar to a traffic ticket.
