The 2016 presidential field could be the most doped-up in history.
The Marijuana Policy Project said Wednesday that eight of the 23 major presidential candidates have either admitted or strongly suggested to having tried marijuana at some point in their lives: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, Sen. Ted Cruz, former New York Gov. George Pataki, Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Bernard Sanders and former Sen. Rick Santorum.
Just six have said they never used it at all: former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, businessman Donald Trump and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
The rest have not given any indications, and did not respond to inquiries from MPP, which has created a list of what it calls the top 50 most influential marijuana consumers.
