City Council members and their pot smoking ways

Frank Stoltze of KPCC had some fun asking each member of the Los Angeles City Council — before today's final vote on the medical marijuana ordinance — if they had ever smoked pot. Some hemmed, some hawed, some answered honestly and a couple offered stories to go with their confessions. Audio | Text
