Where The GOP Field Stands On Weed
A slim majority of Americans support legalizing marijuana, but only 39 percent of Republicans do. So where do the GOP candidates stand on the issue?By Christina Hartman | September 17, 2015
Jeb Bush smoked marijuana decades ago.
"So 40 years ago, I smoked marijuana, and I admit it. I'm sure that other people might have done it, but wouldn't want to say it in front of 25 million people. My mom's not happy that I just did," he said at CNN's Republican presidential debate Wednesday night. Despite the admission though, he doesn't support legalization.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, on the other hand, supports medical marijuana, but not recreational use.
