Jeb: I Drank and Smoked Weed

Jeb Bush is owning up to all his childhood vices early in the game. In a Boston Globe profile, the potential Republican presidential candidate admitted to drinking and smoking marijuana as a teen studying at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. Along with this, his grades were so bad that he was almost expelled. According to peers, he was detached about politics and sometimes bullied smaller classmates. (Bush denies bullying.) At the time, a classmate recalled, Bush “was as far away from the political activism from that time as if he was standing on the moon.”
