If you could smoke a joint with one historical figure – who would it be and why?
I would love to sit down and have a smoke session with Obama and talk to him about what it was like being the first black president. I would just want to hear stories about moments that were meaningful to him during this presidency.
Robin Williams. He was probably one of the funniest men alive. I have a distinct memory of a friend of mine who worked at a gas station in Mill Valley back in the ‘80s, and Robin Williams and Christopher Reeves drove in a convertible red sports car. My friend took a picture of them, and they were laughing their asses off … high as a kite. I would have liked to have been in that car.
I would smoke a fat joint with Richard Milhous Nixon, but a couple of decades before he assumes any sort of position of power. That way, I’d see if there’s a way to change his mindset well before unforgivable mistakes were made.

Can I just say the Obamas as a collective? I would love to kick back and have a cipher with Barack + Michelle — chat with Barack about his yearly playlist selects (which are always on point even for a dad!). I don’t know if Michelle smokes but I bet she’ll drink a nice brelixi with me!
Jacqueline Kennedy was an observer. She was private, educated, loved history and poetry, and was a book editor. It would have been a wonderful experience to enjoy cannabis with her in the library of her NYC apartment, across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, while learning about her unique perspective on overcoming obstacles in life.
