Barack Obama did do Cocaine but it was really to kinda forget all the problems his parents were going through, they were divorcing and Obama did drink alcohol,do marijuana and cocaine. Obama admitted drinking and drug use in high school in his book "Dreams From My Father." I don't remember that it included cocaine. His drug use was not because of his parents divorce, which occurred when he was two years old. He was a rebellious teenager. He grew up in a white world and was trying to figure out what it meant to be a black man, something no one in his family could help him with. He went around with a chip on his shoulder for a while, then his mother had a talk with him. He was apparently impressed with what she had to say about life choices and where they would take him. He applied himself at school and had a choice of good colleges to choose from. He did well enough in college, but did not give up partying until after graduating from Columbia. His roommate at that time reported that he wasn't any fun anymore because he had started getting up early and jogging. Do yourself a favor and read his book. He's a really good writer. The book was written long before he thought of running for president.
