YES, APPARENTLY THEY INHALED….It was a mere decade ago that Bill Clinton had to nervously fend off questions about youthful marijuana use with his famous waffle about “not inhaling.” Last night the question came up at the Democratic debate and, after a bit of nervous laughter, the candidates all answered as matter-of-factly as if it were a question about their healthcare plans. Remarkable.

For the record, here are the cannabis habits of your Democratic candidates:

  • Yes: Dean, Kerry, Edwards

  • No: Lieberman, Clark, Kucinich, Sharpton

  • Refused to answer: Moseley Braun, Gephardt (not at debate)

This should narrow down your choices if marijuana use is an important part of your presidential selection criteria.
