Add one more to the list of New York Times opinion writers who have admitted publicly that they’ve smoked marijuana
On Thursday, Paul Krugman wrote a post on his blog in favor of the Times‘s decision to back legalization of marijuana in the U.S.
“The Times editorial board has been doing a major public service by pushing for marijuana liberalization,” he wrote.
And an admission:
Oh, and for the record, I never have smoked pot (I tried once, but went into a coughing fit) — but I do drink alcohol, and I see no reason to accord special privilege to my recreational drug of choice.
In June, Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote about her psychedelic experience when she ate weed.
A few months prior, her colleague David Brooks wrote about how much marijuana he smoked in high school.
