President Obama is in Colorado — so naturally someone asked whether he wanted to try some legal marijuana.

Obama declined and laughed off the offer.

"Do you want to hit this?" a man asked Obama as he visited a bar in Denver, according to a video posted by Instagram user manton89. (CBS News also posted the video).

The video caption said of Obama: "Asked him if he wanted to hit a hit of pot ... he laughed!"

Obama stuck with a safer option, politically: a beer with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

The state recently made marijuana legal.
