Meghan McCain enjoys the occasional joint, but that's not the reason she thinks it should be legal, though, as she explained on The Tonight Show.
In her new book America, You Sexy Bitch, McCain devotes an entire section advocating for the legalization of pot on numerous grounds.
"I was living in Los Angeles last year, and I was shocked at how people smoke weed the way people in New York pour wine," she said.
"Once I started doing research onto the potential economic benefits for our country by decriminalizing marijuana, I decided to come out publicly in support of it."
The daughter of John McCain repeated her comments on The View Wednesday morning, adding that she's "not a cannabis user ... frequently."
When Barbara Walters quipped that her "father's going to be so proud," Meghan McCain responded, "He knows everything ... and he loves me."
The discussion prompted Elisabeth Hasselbeck to suggest a breathalizer-style system for testing pot users' levels of intoxication before they drive.
Sherri Shepherd's response: "You don't leave the house when you're high."
McCain went on to name her preferred running mate for Mitt Romney - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie - and lament the lack of moderates in the GOP.
