In the lead-up to his presidential bid, Illinois Senator Barack Obama was criticized for his youth and inexperience. But one indiscretion that got little traction was his past drug use likely because he beat everyone to the punch. The future President admitted to experimenting with marijuana and cocaine as a teenager in his 1995 book Dreams From My Father, long before anyone bothered to ask. On a 2007 visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Obama was asked by the late-night host about his drug use. "Remember, Senator, you are under oath. Did you inhale?" Obama replied, "That was the point."
