Seriously, everyone- there are few people who were born and raised in her generation that haven't tried marijuana. This is such a non issue.

Sorry not around where I live in red repub evangelical land... they do not smoke pot.

Ok- so 62 replies- all of you can honestly say you've never smoked pot?

I can't stand Palin- but there are many valid criticisms and this is not one of them.

I don't think anyone takes its "threat" seriously anymore, and its about as ubiquitious as any illegal substance that I can think of.

Legalize it. Tax it.

I don't smoke it now, and wouldn't smoke it then. I doubt there are many people just raring to try it that are letting the law stop 'em.

(This isn't intended to be a thread hijack, by the way. It's just totally obvious from the number of "so what?!?!" responses that few consider pot a big deal.)
Right on...I don't know of anyone who ever OD'd on pot.

I grew up in an area like that- and the kids did smoke pot.

Somehow - I just can't imagine Britney Spears being elected to the Office of Governor of ANY state -

Palin is not "simple minded". Not by any stretch of the imagination

Is this a case of the "pot calling the Kettle black?" To call some one "pure trash", is not nice, unless you are in that catagory also. "Common Folk" is a decent term, as it applies to most of us.
