Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is 'fine' with a sitting president who smokes weed

Published by Yahoo on Thu, 14 Feb 2019


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to be chill as hell.In an interview with TMZ on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez shared some of her thoughts on cannabis legalization, proving she's extremely open-minded on the topic.When asked if she'd be OK with a sitting president who smokes, the 29-year-old congresswoman said, "I don't care. Yeah. I don't care, it's fine with me. You're not hurting anybody, you know'""There are plenty of people who drink, they'll go out to happy hour ... how is that different from anything else'" Ocasio-Cortez questioned.Her comments come after several politicians running for president --such as Kamala Harris -- shared positions on marijuana legalization, along with past experiences."I certainly think people used to run away from it but we just need to accept that there is nothing more inherently damaging about marijuana than, say, legal substances like alcohol or anything else," Ocasio-Cortez said. "So I'm glad that we're moving towards a more just position as a party."It's not often you hear a politician, let alone a member of Congress freely come out and accept marijuana consumption, especially in the White House. But Ocasio-Cortez made it clear she's excited for marijuana to be legalized and for the country to make up for "damages done by the war on drugs."
