Retired MP Robert "Bob" Brady (D-PA) recently said in an interview that he was interested in trying marijuana, regardless of whether his state legalized it.
Brady allegedly made the comment in an interview with the reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Claudia Vargas, who, according to the Boston Globe, presented the Pennsylvania Democrat next month before resigning from Congress.
"He is curious about marijuana, which he has never smoked before but wants to try. Vargas said in a tweet on Sunday.
"Is it legal now, he asked? He plans to try it one way or another, he said. "

Although Pennsylvania sought legalization of medical marijuana in 2016 and was the first state to codify research on the subject, cannabis is not yet fully legal
However, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf (D) expressed interest in seeking legislation that would legalize the use of the drug for recreational purposes in a tweet.
"More and more states are putting marijuana legalization into practice and we need to learn from their efforts, "Wolf said last week in a Twitter Q & A.
" Any change would require legislation. But I think it's time for Pennsylvania to seriously and honestly engage in recreational marijuana, "he added.
More and more countries are successfully implementing the legalization of marijuana, and we need to learn from their efforts. Any change would require legislation. But I think it's time for Pennsylvania to seriously and honestly deal with marijuana. https://t.co/LHOmYKzMyp[19459003-GovernorTomWolf(@GovernorTomWolf) December 19, 2018
