Senator Rob Portman: Marijuana Use Confirmed!!!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rob Portman has stopped the presses once again.

About two months after announcing that he has switched his views on gay marriage, the Ohio Senator has made headlines for admitting the unthinkable in an interview Monday night:

He's smoked marijuana!

Portman admitted to making like Justin Bieber during a BuzzFeed Brews Q&A this week when he was asked by John Stanton if he's ever smoked weed.

"This is all off the record," Portman joked before answering with a simple "yes."

The 57-year old Republican didn’t include any further details, but said that he's been closely involved with drug-prevention measures and programs since his first year in Congress in 1993.

He has concerns about substance abuse overall in Ohio, most notably when it comes to heroin.

“It can devastate your life and it has for many people,” Portman said.

The Senator concluded that he's been honest with his kids about his past, opening up to them them about how he did "experiment" when he was young, but experience has taught him better and he hopes they do not follow suit.

“I tell them [that] having spent a lot of time now in this field," he said.


"What of the cripple who hates dancers? What of the ox who loves his yoke and deems the elk and deer of the forest stray and vagrant things? What of the old serpent who cannot shed his skin, and calls all others naked and shameless? And of him who comes early to the wedding-feast, and when over-fed and tired goes his way saying that all feasts are a violation and all feasters lawbreakers?"
—Khalil Gibran It is the Prohibitionists, a wholly malignant scourge of absolute scoundrels, who are literally strangling the Constitution and starving Freedom to death. And until the Freedom and Constitution of our once proud and prosperous nation is secured, these same prohibitionist parasites, with their promotion of organized crime, murder, terrorism, and economic recession—and who carry with them a disease far fouler than Old Testament leprosy—shall be hunted down, removed from public life, and punished accordingly. Prohibition is an absolute scourge —The End!  The use of drugs is NOT the real problem, the system that grants exclusive distribution rights to violent cartels, terrorists, and corrupt politicians most definitely IS. Prohibitionists are simply traitors that haven't yet been Tried and Executed!


it's just part of the youth & a way how you think & will act in life.
