Hmmm....yes, I realize it's two years old, but it's new to me:
Palin doesn't support legalizing marijuana, worrying about the message it would send to her four kids. But when it comes to cracking down on drugs, she says methamphetamines are the greater threat and should have a higher priority.
Palin said she has smoked marijuana -- remember, it was legal under state law, she said, even if illegal under U.S. law -- but says she didn't like it and doesn't smoke it now.
"I can't claim a Bill Clinton and say that I never inhaled."
I guess it's better than trying to suppress it for an October surprise. I'm not really bothered by it (just as I'm not too bothered by Obama's way-in-the-past drug use). To think, just 16 years ago, Bill Clinton felt the need to say that he "didn't inhale."
Related true story: While I was staying in Oxford one summer during grad school I ate at the pub where Bill Clinton supposedly "didn't inhale."
