On Friday, a sleepy-eyed President Obama was interviewed with fluff questions by NBC's Bob Costas a few minutes into coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. A number of viewers later said the president appeared to be stoned, Twitchy reported.

"President Obama looks exhausted. Or stoned. Is he in Colorado?" one person asked.

"Obama looks as high as a kite on @NBCOlympics," another person tweeted.

"Obama is stoned for sure," added Twitter user "Mother of Dragons."

While a search revealed a number of people on Twitter shared the same concern, one person said otherwise.

"Folks, without seeing Obama's eyes fully open, you can't tell if he's stoned. Let's use some brain cells!" tweeted "Stuck in New England."

One person sarcastically said the real question is: "When is Obama not stoned?"

Costas asked the president why no high-ranking U.S. official would be at the Olympics in Sochi, prompting Obama to complain that he has not attended any Olympic games during his administration.

"Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to go to the Olympics since I've been president," he said.

Obama said Janet Napolitano and other "wonderful Americans" would represent the United States at the winter games.

Costas also asked about U.S. working with Russia, reminding Obama that he promised to "reset" relations with the nation.

After mentioning Syria and other issues, Costas said it appears Vladimir Putin is the one doing the resetting.

Obama said there have been "ups and downs" in the relationship between the two leaders, adding that Putin seems to look bored in public interviews, calling it his "schtick."

It's not the first time Obama has been accused of using drugs while in the White House. Some, for example, have suggested the president was high on cocaine the night of the Benghazi terrorist attack.
