Home Secretary Jacqui Smith Smoked Cannabis

SMOKE and mirrors:

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has admitted she smoked cannabis while she was at Oxford University in the 1980s.

Her disclosure came the day after Prime Minister Gordon Brown said she would head a review of UK drugs strategy – including reviewing the cannabis laws.

“I did break the law… I was wrong… drugs are wrong,” Ms Smith, 44, said.

She had smoked it “just a few times”, had “not particularly” enjoyed it and had not taken any other illegal drugs, she told the BBC.

A number of senior politicians have admitted smoking cannabis in their youth – including at least one of her predecessors as home secretary, Charles Clarke.

They smokes dope.They smoked fags and sat in smoke-filled pubs.  They grew up.They want to stop you doing it lest it harm you. But did it harm them, these peopel in power?
