'When We Legalize Cannabis In New York, I Will Give It Another Shot,' Promises Cynthia Nixon

New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon (D) has made cannabis legalization a central part of her campaign platform, but she isn't known as a pot smoker.

However, in a recent interview with The Cut, the former actor and left-leaning politician said she has tried it a few times in the past, has made the commitment to try it again once it becomes legalized.

"I tried it twice when I was in college. It wasn't for me, but I promised a number of people that when we legalize it in New York, I will give it another shot."

And if she does get elected as governor her public experimentation with cannabis could go a long way to normalizing the substance.
