Justin Trudeau admits to smoking pot since becoming a MP
Justin Trudeau, who has endorsed legalizing marijuana, admits that he has smoked pot since becoming an Member of Parliament.
The Liberal leader told The Huffington Post Canada‘s Althia Raj that he had a “puff” three years ago. He was first elected in 2008.
“We had a few good friends over for a dinner party, our kids were at their grandmother’s for the night, and one of our friends lit a joint and passed it around. I had a puff,” Trudeau told the website.
The Huffington Post asked all three of the major party leaders if they smoked pot at any time. Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he never had tried cannabis, while NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair said he had smoked pot, but would not go into details on when he had or how he got it.
