Attorney General Eric Holder said he smoked pot in college during an interview with HuffPost published Tuesday.
And the way he put it, it really wasn’t a big deal:
Asked about his own personal history with marijuana, Holder told HuffPost he used pot in college and had characterized it as “youthful experimentation” in background checks for various federal nominations.
“Yeah, I certainly have said in my four, five, whatever number confirmation hearings I’ve had that you fill out the forms, that I had youthful experimentation, I think was the phrase that we were told to use, when I was in college,” Holder said.
