TRURO - Justin Trudeau has done it, Premier Darrell Dexter has done it and so have a growing number of newly disclosed elected officials.
But Colchester County Councillor Tom Taggart says he has never experienced reefer madness.
“I like to keep up with all the big time politicians but I need to say that in all honesty I have never, ever, ever, ever smoked a joint,” Taggart said, to the glee of his fellow councillors during Thursday night’s council session, regarding the recent disclosures by Dexter, Trudeau and others.
“I’ve been in the company of many that have but I have never smoked a joint,” he said.
“And never simulated?” asked Mayor Bob Taylor. “That’s real good news.”
