California Gubernatorial Candidates Asked If They Smoked Pot

January 26 – At a California Gubernatorial debate, Jorge Ramos of Univision asked the candidates to raise their hands if they had ever smoked marijuana.

Former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s hand shot up, followed by cheers from the crowd. He said afterwards, “And different than some, I actually inhaled.” Also raising their hands were former Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin, and state Treasurer John Chiang.
