Founding Fathers - Trevor MooreWARNING: NO NUDITY BUT THERE IS SOME LANGUAGE INCLUDING SEX, DRUGS, AND ROCK’N’ROLL (OK… IT’S RAP, BUT IT ROCKS!)

I like this rap. It’s got some historical accuracy to it and it’s hella funny! Yes, Lincoln did smoke, but it wasn’t as potent then as it is now, sorry. Btw, the “second thing” he loved was playing harmonica.

There’s no evidence that Washington and Jefferson (nor Franklin) did, though. The alleged quote from Jefferson that said he did is nowhere in his papers. They do write of separating the hemp seeds by sex, and it’s true that the female plants are the ones that get you high. But, it’s also true that the male plant gives you better fibers for rope, paper, and ship sails. So who knows?

Another interesting thing to note, is that Jefferson was actually anti-tobacco. He thought it was a waste of both land and health.
