'Marijuana is not a drug, it's a leaf'

By unknown | Oct 30, 2007 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Actor-turned-governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has sparked controversy after claiming marijuana is not a drug.

The Terminator star, 60, made the statement in a recent interview with men's magazine GQ - despite previously admitting to having smoked the illegal substance in the 1977 bodybuilding documentary, Pumping Iron.

He said: "I didn't take any drugs. Marijuana is not a drug. It's a leaf.

"My heart was pumping iron, trust me."

While marijuana for medical reasons is permitted in California, those found to be in possession of a small amount of the drug face a misdemeanour charge and a maximum about R700 fine. - Wenn
