VIDEO Jeb Bush Admits During GOP Debate To Smoking Marijuana in Past

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush admitted during the second Republican presidential debate that he smoked marijuana decades ago.


“Forty years ago, I smoked marijuana, and I admit it,” Mr. Bush said during a discussion of drug policy. “I’m sure that other [candidates] might have done it, and may not want to say it in front of 25 million people. My mom’s not happy that I just did.”

He said the nation has “a serious epidemic of drugs that goes way beyond marijuana.”

He said the government should play a “consistent role” in providing more treatment options for drug users.
