That was fairly lame as prank calls go.
See, it's funny, because the Obama Administration has been aggressively persecuting the War on Drugs, using federal authority to completely disregard state marijuana legalization laws that have been on the books since the early Bush years. By taking audio clips of Obama's famously frank drug use confessionals, and re-contextualizing them within the framework of a national drug abuse hotline (which takes a passive, voluntary, individual, and *non-punitive* approach to the "problem" of drug use), the pranksters-as-artist are making a powerful statement about the moral hypocrisy of paternalism, the betrayal of ideals felt by Obama's early supporters on the libertarian-left, the madness of a prison-industrial systems commanded by an insulated caste of above-the-law drug-users, and hurggldurffgrrrbhrrf.
Other than that, it wasn't very funny.
