Rubio Doobie

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) gets the pot question… again:

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said asking whether a politician has ever tried marijuana is a “worthless question” in American politics.

Rubio, a potential 2016 candidate for president, has consistently dodged the question about if he experimented with the drug as a younger man. In an interview that aired Monday from ABC News-Yahoo News, Rubio reiterated that answering the question honestly is a lose-lose.

“Here is the problem with that question in American politics,” he said. “If you say that you did, suddenly there are people out there saying it is not a big deal, look at all these successful people who did it. And I don’t want my kids to smoke marijuana. And I don’t want other people’s kids to smoke marijuana. I don’t think there is a responsible way to recreationally use marijuana. On the other side of it, if you tell people that you didn’t, they won’t believe you. So it is just a worthless question.”

Translation: Of course I lit up but there’s no way I’m gonna tell you I did.

The very idea of Marco Rubio stoned makes me giggle.

2 barks and woofs on “Rubio Doobie

  1. I smoked one time in the late 70’s didn’t like it and never did it again. And I inhaled big time!

  2. I don’t smoke dope and I don’t drink but I also don’t understand why the follow-up question isn’t “do you drink and have you ever been drunk?”

    (I have plenty of vices, just not those two.)
