2008 The Tokin’ Token

Palin admitted to smoking potóon more than one occasion, even though she says she didn’t care for itóback when she was running for governor way, way back in 2006:
Palin doesn’t support legalizing marijuana, worrying about the message it would send to her four kids. But when it comes to cracking down on drugs, she says methamphetamines are the greater threat and should have a higher priority.
Palin said she has smoked marijuanaóremember, it was legal under state law, she said, even if illegal under U.S. lawóbut says she didn’t like it and doesn’t smoke it now.
“I can’t claim a Bill Clinton and say that I never inhaled.”
Yes, yes: we wouldn’t want to send kids the message that pot is some sort of harmless drug that you can use and still somehow go on to become the governor of a state, a vice-presidential nominee, and, if you get elected and your elderly running mate’s heart gives out, perhaps even president of the United States. Yeah, that would be the wrong message.
