Drugs minister 'smoked marijuana'

From the beeb:
"The new minister for drugs policy has admitted smoking cannabis.
[He] said he had had "one or two puffs of marijuana" while a student but had not enjoyed the experience and decided not to repeat it.

The Home Office minister, who was handed his role in this month's Cabinet reshuffle, denied taking harder drugs.

He made his admission on a visit to Coventry as part of a nationwide tour to see how the government's drug strategy is affecting communities.

He told the Coventry Evening Telegraph: "When I was a student, I took one or two puffs of marijuana but that was it. I think it was once or twice."

Here's a piccy of the 'drugs minister'. He's called Mr Coaker. No, really. The line under the photo on the beeb website is, "Mr Coaker says he did not enjoy smoking marijuana".

Because the absence of enjoyment is absolutely crucial.

This is what I love about blogging. You don't have to make anything up at all.
