Which 2016 Candidates Have Smoked Weed Before? These Potential Presidents Have Puffed More Pot Than You May Think
Drug laws have always been a political issue, and now that recreational marijuana is legal in Oregon, voters are probably wondering which of the 2016 candidates have smoked weed before. The long fought War On Drugs is starting to soften when it comes to marijuana, and politicians are help paving the way.
It has been well document that President Obama smoked pot in his youth. Though he said he views it as a bad habit, he told the New Yorker that he doesn't "think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” In 1992, President Bill Clinton became the first sitting president to admit to using marijuana. "I experimented once or twice. I didn't like it. I didn't inhale, and I never tried it again," he famously said.
As marijuana use is becoming more popular and socially accepted, guess which presidential hopefuls have owned up to using the drug recreationally.
