Bernie Sanders jokes he didn’t use medical marijuana before tonight’s debate

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) cracked a joke during Tuesdays 2020 Democratic debate that he didnt use medical marijuana before getting on the stage after being asked about his health.

Sanders, who recently suffered a heart attack, was asked by a moderator about his health as part of a larger discussion about the age of a potential president.

In response, Sanders joked that he was not on it tonight.
