The first boat that came to america had tons and tons of marijuana. They used it for clothes, the sails were made from it.
Keep it lit.

That type of marijuna wasnt smoked though. The stuff they used for ropes and sails is hemp, its different than the wacky tabaky moonhead gets wasted on. :-b

I'd imagine hemp is what G Washington was growing as well.

So did he like hang over the side of his pillar when he had to well......you know. Hopefully the pilgrims below were quick on their feet.

It was my understanding that Atchison was the first one sworn in the subsequent day, so while it is ambiguous as to who was actually President for that Sunday, Atchison became President Pro Tempore some minutes before Taylor was actually sworn in as President. So, for those few minutes, he was the official President Pro Tempore of the Senate, which meant he was President until Fillmore was sworn in as Veep, who was President for minutes until Taylor was sworn in as Prez.
