LATHAM ADMITS TRYING MARIJUANA
LABOR leader Mark Latham has admitted to trying marijuana in his youth - and
Mr Latham was speaking to journalists after the 2004 Organisation for Early
Childhood Education Congress in Melbourne today when he was asked whether he
ever used cannabis in his youth.
Mr Latham responded: "Yes I did and I have got to own up I did inhale, so
there you go, how about that."
However, the Opposition Leader declined to elaborate on the experience when
pressed by a journalist.
"I have answered the question, this is not some sort of inquiry is it,
you're trying to muster here."
In 1992, in an interview with The New York Times, former US president Bill
Clinton admitted to trying marijuana.
"When I was in England I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I
didn't like it. I didn't inhale," he told the newspaper.
