Rob Ford On Marijuana: 'Oh, Yeah.. I've Smoked A Lot Of It'
The Toronto Sun's Don Peat reports Ford was whisked away by handlers after he was asked when he last smoked marijuana.
Back in 1999, Ford was arrested in Florida for drunk driving and marijuana possession. The arrest resurfaced during his 2010 mayoral campaign but failed to halt his momentum en route to a landslide victory.
"Was it wrong? Absolutely it was wrong and I made a mistake," he said back in 2010. "You learn by your mistakes."
Since becoming mayor of Canada's largest city, Ford has been accused several times of being intoxicated in public and, infamously, of being caught on tape smoking crack cocaine. Ford has denied the crack video exists and that he has a drinking problem.
