There is no picture of an Obama smoking weed button. What the stlactivisthub.blogspot.com has is the photo of Obama smoking a cigarette given the Shepard Fairey Hope poster treatment:

When you mention or even reference Obama smoking weed one thinks of the actual pictures from college here:

And we all know he continues to smoke cigarettes. Though he promised not to do it in the White House:

Didn't you see, he is the new FDR:

And don't worry about the hypocrisy of him increasing federal tax on a pack of cigarettes by $0.61 cents despite his vow to not raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 per year in light of the fact that most people who make less than the national average salary of $50,000 smoke:

You must not have heard that Obama is the new Joe Camel:
http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/275403
But it wasn't any cartoon character that put tobacco under control of the Food and Drug Administration. That was Obama:

And behold the famous image of Obama smoking that has escaped his carefully crafted image and fuels his own Photobucket account, and is used in the Dope button:
http://photobucket.com/images/obama%20smoking/

Dope definition = Informal. a stupid or unresponsive person. (Like someone who smokes while speaking of its evils and holds themselves up as a role model for youth by appearing in after school specials:)

Therefore, it never entered my mind the button was referring to drugs but his addiction to cigarettes. Personally, I would buy a button captioned, "I'm a Joker, I'm a toker, I'm a midnight smoker," to the "Why so socialist?" Obama as Batman Joker poster.
