Sen. Portman Says He Smoked Pot

The highlight of Sen. Rob Portman’s BuzzFeed Brews interview Monday night wasn’t his pitchy rendition of Randy Newman’s “Burn On,” nor was it his remark that George W. Bush “certainly did his level best” during his tenure as president.

It was that the conservative senator from Ohio admitted that, yeah, he smoked pot.

The hot-button question came seconds after Portman took his seat for the interview, a Cleveland-brewed Great Lakes beer in hand.  BuzzFeed’s John Stanton opened the interview by telling the crowd he’d recently seen photos of a young Portman from the ’70s and ’80s, and that he looked “a bit like a dirty hippie with the long hair.”
