Roll Up With Obama

We all know President-elect Barack Obama has smoked marijuana, but it seems some people don’t think linking him further to the drug is a good idea. And it’s not who you might suspect. Rolling paper company Bambu, which has been included in films such as “Totally Baked: A Pot-u-mentary” and the “Cheech and Chong” series and is widely used for weed-smoking, is suing t-shirt makers Love Fatigues for their Obama t-shirt design that resembles their rolling paper logo.

Not only did Love Fatigues create the design, they advertised the t-shirt in High Times magazine. This caused the Bambu company to write in a complaint filed in Manhattan that the design could “subject Bambu to criticism and scorn,” by creating a relationship between the incoming president and smoking an illegal drug.

Since Bambu has been around for literally hundreds of years and Love Fatiuges has been around for exactly as long as it sounds like they have, it’s a good guess that Bambu is going to win the lawsuit. So it’s probably a good time to stock up on this shirt, before it’s gone forever.
