President Barack Obama is the most influential marijuana user in the U.S., according to a list recently released by the Washington, D.C.-based Marijuana Policy Project. (They of the scathing critique of former Sen. John Morse.)

He heads a group of people "who have used marijuana at least once during their lifetimes, including some who speak openly about their current marijuana use," says the organization. "They were selected based on their 'power to influence cultural and social attitudes, political clout, individual wealth, and ... media profile,' which is the criteria used by Out Magazine ... The list includes known supporters and opponents of marijuana policy reform."

Following Obama are Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Clarence Thomas and Stephen Colbert. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper comes in at 31st. See the full list below.
