New Zealand’s PM admits to having used cannabis

New Zealand’s PM Jacinda Ardern said she tried cannabis ’a long time ago’ when asked during a live debate on Wednesday. Ardern, 40, is widely seen winning a second term in office following the Oct 17 general election. Her rival is conservative National Party leader Judith Collins. Ardern’s comments come as New Zealanders are also voting the issue of legalizing recreational cannabis.

She should be doing it every day while in that office! I wouldn't want a leader who takes themselves so seriously that they wouldn't. I bet she also drinks alcohol now and then.

I would expect nothing less from probably the worlds greatest current PM. She’ll still have to take a second seat to the Australian PM who (if my trivia knowledge is serving me well) held the Guinness world record for chugging beer?

A twitch in the right direction, if not an actual step. The stupidity and prejudice surrounding this drug has wasted billions and unnecessarily criminalised countless lives.

That explains their gun control policies, because they HAVE to be high.

Wait! Won’t this mean she can’t travel to the US now, or does she have to be convicted to be banned?

I am very proud of her. She is such a phenomenal leader. I think I would move to New Zealand just to have her as a leader. She is doing such a great job and it shows. I am rooting for her.

I watched this live here in NZ. Nobody cared. I'm surprised to see this here. More notable was her answer regarding if she would vote in favour of the legalization referendum. If she had a criminal record it is doubtful she would be prime minister at all.

Kamala pretending she smoked weed is more newsworthy.
