Ocasio-Cortez okay with sitting president smoking marijuana

“We need to accept that there is nothing more inherently damaging about marijuana than say legal substances like alcohol or anything else,” the freshman Congresswoman told TMZ on Tuesday. “So, I’m glad that we’re moving towards a more just position as a party and that we’re moving to legalize marijuana but not just legalize marijuana but to really make up for the damages done by the War on Drugs and the people who were unjustly incarcerated by the War on Drugs.”

“So, some of the president[ial candidates], would it be okay even if they say — like, I know, Senator Harris, when she said yesterday that it was a long time ago. So, would it be okay to have a president who say that they do smoke?” the TMZ cameraman asked.
