Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool with having a pothead as president.
The celebrity congresswoman was nabbed by TMZ walking through the basement of the Capitol and she defended a sitting president smoking reefer.
“We just need to accept that there is nothing more inherently damaging about marijuana than, say, legal substances like alcohol, you know, anything else and so I’m glad we’re more towards a more just position as a party, and we’re moving to legalize marijuana, but not just legalize marijuana, but to really make up for the damages done by the war on drugs and the people that were unjustly incarcerated by the war on drugs,” she said.
The TMZ reporter asked her if she would be alright if a sitting president smoked pot.
“I don’t care!” she said. “I don’t care. It’s fine with me. It’s not hurting anybody, you know,” she said, saying there are “plenty of people” who went out to happy hour.
“They’ll go out and have one, two, three…” with a laugh, adding, “How is that different than anything else, ya know?”
