FLORIDA: Sen. Marco Rubio won’t admit to smoking marijuana in his younger days, but he does believes that there’s “no responsible way to recreationally use” pot.
The Florida Republican senator was asked about any past marijuana use during an interview with Yahoo! News, but the possible 2016 presidential candidate blew off the question.
“Here’s the problem with that question in American politics: If you say that you did and suddenly there are people out there saying, ‘Well, it’s not a big deal. Look at all these successful people who did it,'” Rubio said.
“I don’t want my kids to smoke marijuana,” he said. “And I don’t want other people’s kids to smoke marijuana. I don’t believe there’s a responsible way to recreationally use marijuana.”
“On the other side of it, if you tell people you didn’t they won’t believe you,” he added.
