At a rally today in Puerto Rico, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders promised he would legalize marijuana if he becomes president.
Sanders started out his address by speaking Spanish. He explained that because his Spanish isn’t good enough to give an entire speech, he’d be giving the bulk of his talk in English.
But he knew enough Spanish to answer one person’s question.
After Sanders’s speech, a person in the audience asked the candidate about his stance on marijuana.
“Would you legalize marijuana?” the audience member asked, first in Spanish than in English.
Sanders quickly replied: “Si.”
He followed up his one-word promise to legalize marijuana with another joke about his Spanish skills.
“You see,” he said, “my Spanish is good enough to know that word.”
