Rob Ford joins a long line of people who admit to smoking “a lot” of pot
Mayor Rob Ford has always been high on my list of politicians, but I’m moving him up a couple notches after he admitted to smoking “a lot” of marijuana.
Ford was asked Wednesday by reporters if he smoked pot. “Oh yeah,” he said, adding, “I’ve smoked a lot of it.”
He wouldn’t say how recently he’s smoked, but does anyone believe he quit in 2000, after he was busted for driving under the influence in Florida and handed over a joint to the cop that stopped him?
My observations – and I know quite a bit about this business – lead me to conclude that Ford smokes reefer all the time, and I am impressed with his honesty.
Some people will see it as further proof he is not cut out to be mayor, but it won’t be anyone from Ford Nation. When we were talking about Ford smoking crack a few months ago and members of the tribe were calling talk radio to defend him, they were saying things like, “who hasn’t smoked a little
Not me, but I can tell you for sure that I have spilled more pot than most people have smoked, including the Ford Bros.
In 1981, I was caught with enough pot to fill the trunk of a 1969 Buick Electra 225 (with fender skirts; what a car!). I tried stuffing it down my pants, but it wouldn’t fit.
I learned a really interesting thing when I went to court: The RCMP is in a bad spot when they bust a guy with a trunk load, but cannot make a case that he is a dealer. And thank God for that.
Nowadays, the pot is so powerful I don’t like it. I just want a mild buzz, so I limit myself to an occasional few puffs.
But I have no problem with the mayor blowing a joint after work; if half the world wasn’t doing the same thing, there’d be no pressure to decriminalize pot.
He’s probably got a pack of Zig Zag whites in his pocket right now, or somewhere in that big Escalade he drives.
I bet he can roll a perfect fattie.
