Arnold Schwarzenegger says marijuana is not a drug

California governor Schwarzenegger said last week, during an interview with GQ that marijuana is just a leaf. “That is not a drug. It’s a leaf,” Schwarzenegger told GQ. “My drug was pumping iron, trust me.” This discussion started  for a photo dated 1977, where the future california governor was a bodybuilder champion. In that pic Schwarzenegger was shown smoking a joint in the documentary “Pumping Iron.”

Iron Arnold has acknowledged using marijuana in the 1970s. The interview will be make public in the december issue of the popular magazine GQ, but we know already that it contains other interesting sentences about drugs and politicians: in particular Schwarzenegger has shown its point of view on it, saying that he prefers the politician that is able to take good decisions for his community, and that element like drug use should stay out of the evaluation of that politician.
