The Straight Dope With Arnold Schwarzenegger

The Straight Dope With Arnold Schwarzenegger-photo

The populace is used to hot air spewing from politicians' mouths. Pot smoke? Not so much.

But California governor and future Gisele Bundchen neighbor Arnold Schwarzenegger is a rarity.

Recently TMZ asked Ah-nuld about stoner icon Tommy Chong's assertion that he had smoked pot with the former bodybuilder and action star in  the '70s.

"He was right," Schwarzenegger replied without hesitation. "We always had a good time; we knew how to enjoy ourselves."

Arnie's love for the leaf has been long-established. The weightlifter was shown smoking a joint in the 1977 documentary Pumping Iron, and he raised eyebrows more recently when he opined in a 2007 interview with GQ magazine that marijuana is "not a drug, it's a leaf."

Next up: expect an announcement from Schwarzenegger declaring that he's adding a new Joint Chiefs of Staff to his administration.

Maybe the slogan for his next campaign should be, "I'll be baked?"

Don't show disrespect. If ya want respect then ya gotta give respect. If you don't have respect then you'll never be happy. Puck you, get out ma house.

    OMG! Arnold must be insane now. Marijuana does that to people. Just watch the movie Reefer Madness and see what it does to people.

    Arnold doesn't mind being honest in this case, because he doesn't feel Marijuana is a drug.
