Public Advocate Jumaane Williams reveals he sold weed in high school
Public Advocate Jumaane Williams revealed Monday that he sold marijuana for “maybe a year or two” in high school – though he never actually smoked.
The recently elected public advocate’s disclosure came during a forum on marijuana legalization at the Brooklyn Public Library hosted by the Breakfast Clutch, called “Talking About Mary Jane.”
“I don’t think I’ve said this publicly before but in high school I sold weed for maybe a year or two,” Williams said.
The public advocate said he never smoked, but had eaten edibles in the past. Williams said he sold marijuana to pay for comic books and candy.
