President Barack Obama had an up-close encounter with Denver's marijuana subculture during a stop in the city on Tuesday night. In a video posted on Instagram, a man in the crowd can be heard asking the president, "Do you want a hit of this?"
Obama doesn't reply, but laughs off the request.
The person who posted the video, who goes by the username manton89, wrote: "Asked him if he wanted a hit of pot...he laughed! #legalizeit #iinhaled #mrGQ"
He also posted a photo of the president with a pool cue. He doesn't say where he took the photos, but it appears to be the Wynkoop Brewing Company, where Obama and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper had a brew and shot some pool.
It wasn't Obama's only unusual encounter in the Mile-High City. Earlier, he shook hands with someone wearing a horse head mask:
In politics, there are always a few neigh-sayers around.
The mask is already an Internet meme, but the presidential encounter with it is threatening to turn the image into a viral sensation:
