MailOnline (excerpts below): Obama's high school pot dealer who (sic) he thanked for the 'good times' was beaten to death with a hammer by his gay lover after fights over flatulence and drugs.
- Raymond Boyer was known as 'Gay Ray' to Obama and his marijuana smoking 'Choom Gang' of privately-educated kids at Hawaiian high school
- Ray was bludgeoned to death with a hammer in 1986, seven years after he supplied the future president and his friends with drugs
- Lover Andrew Devere, a male prostitute, gave police a variety of reasons for the murder
- He said surfer Boyer put him down constantly and broke wind in his face
- Court documents uncovered for the first time by MailOnline
- Choom is island slang for pot smoking and group went on excursions to countryside to get high and party, sometimes in Ray’s surf van
- Devere is now living on the mainland after serving his life sentence
- Obama last week said marijuana was no more dangerous than alcohol
- Devere's new wife Elizabeth told MailOnline doing drugs is fine if you are rich and 'have the tools to deal with it' but not if you are poor with problems
Appeal court documents from 1991, uncovered for the first time by MailOnline, reveal Devere killed Boyer on New Year’s Day 1986 because: Boyer was killing a friend of his by supplying that friend with drugs; Boyer embarrassed Devere and put him down in front of other people; Boyer had developed a habit of farting in Devere's face; Boyer once attacked Devere with a knife, slicing Devere's finger; Boyer made Devere beg for drugs.
He mentioned in his own autobiography that he took drugs. And David Maraniss’s book Barack Obama: The Story revealed the existence of the Choom Gang (Choom is slang for smoking pot) and their dealer 'Ray'.
I have to say that of the extremely large number of problems I have with Obama, his pot-smoking isn't one of them. I'd much rather see his college/law school records.
