Florida senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) won't say whether he's smoked pot before, a question routinely asked of potential presidential contenders nowadays. “Here’s the problem with that question in American politics, if you say you did, suddenly there are all these people saying ‘Well, it’s not a big deal, look at all these successful people who did it,’” Rubio told Yahoo News. “On the other side of it, if you tell people that you didn’t, they won’t believe you.”
