Bill Clinton finally made the clear admission he refused to make 21 years ago when he was running for president of the United States the first time, according to a Yahoo! News report on Wednesday. Clinton finally admitted that he did, in fact, smoke marijuana, back in the day.

Bill Clinton speaks with Jorge Ramos about his Marijuana use (VIDEO)

While campaigning for president in 1992, Clinton was asked if he used marijuana, and his response was quite incredibly that he “didn’t inhale” the substance. That response has been laughable to many since the words left his mouth. Now, Clinton says that he didn’t say he was holier than thou – and he says that he said he tried smoking pot. He’s claiming that he never denied that he used marijuana.

As one may recall, when asked the question about his possible drug use before becoming president, he evasively said that during his days as a Rhodes Scholar in England, he did experiment with marijuana a time or two but he didn’t like it – therefore, he claimed he “didn’t inhale” – and never tried it again.

To this day, many people assert that Clinton was simply trying to avoid political damage by denying that he had actually smoked marijuana – since he claimed it never entered his lungs.

During the interview with Jorge Ramos of TV’s “Fusion” on Tuesday night, Ramos asked Clinton if he would have answered the question differently in these times – since, after all, the public’s attitudes about smoking pot have changed and have allowed President Barack Obama to get elected twice after talking candidly about his drug use in the past.

Clinton said, “Like many things in the press, that whole thing has been totally twisted. I told the truth. I thought it was funny.”

He apparently wasn’t asked if he thought his infamous quote - “I didn’t have sex with that woman” - was also supposed to be a funny response to questions about his trysts with Monica Lewinsky.
