[Ed. – You can’t say this and then credibly complain about anything any president says or does.  You’ve agreed in advance to impaired performance.]

Although nearly all the major studies on habitual marijuana use show a strong link between its consumption and mental illness, including schizophrenia, and violence, House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said it’s perfectly fine if a president of the United States smokes dope because “you’re not hurting anybody.”  The 29-year-old self-declared socialist added, “yeah, I don’t care.”

At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, Feb. 12, TMZ caught up with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and asked her about Democratic presidential candidates admitting to having smoked marijuana. …

“I’m glad that we’re moving towards a more just position as a party and that we’re moving to legalize marijuana,” said the congresswoman,  “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.”
