Rick Santorum: I smoked pot in college

In an interview that aired on CNN Wednesday night, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told Piers Morgan that he had smoked marijuana while in college.

“I admitted back when I was running for the Senate that when I was in college I smoked pot, and that was something I did when I was in college, and it was something that I’m not proud of, but I did it,” he said. “And it is something I wish I hadn’t done, but I did and I admitted it and would encourage people not to do so.”

During the same CNN interview, Santorum defended his stance against same sex marriages.
