Everybody’s Doing It –
June 8, 2019 – The issue of drug use has long been an issue in political campaigns. In 1992, U.S. presidential hopeful Bill Clinton famously said he tried marijuana while at Oxford University but “didn’t inhale.” The remark became the subject of derision, including by then-Sen. Barack Obama, who said in 2006: “When I was a kid, I inhaled … That was the point.” But as the Conservative leadership campaign heats up, it remains unclear how party members will receive the news. The favorite on betting markets is Boris Johnson, a former foreign secretary and the head of the 2016 referendum campaign to leave the EU. Johnson told GQ in 2007 he had tried cocaine and cannabis.
