It’s a big moment when a politician comes out and drops a reputational bomb and there is none more interesting than when they admit being human enough to have smoked marijuana. And tonight folks that is what Pauline Hanson has done, according to the teasers being planted by The Verdict.
The former Independent and leader of the One Nation Party will admit she has puffed “three times”… just enough to be politically aware but not enough to be socially unacceptable by most people’s standard.
“I will admit when I was younger that I tried marijuana three times – I was really spaced out of my head,” Ms Hanson revealed during the panel discussion airing tonight.
“If you put me in a car and I had to drive, well…”
Tonight on #TheVerdict Pauline Hanson admits she has smoked Marijuana! I just assumed she was permanently blazed.

Pauline Hanson is most famous for the well beaten up lines “I don’t like it” and “Please explain” spoken in perfect “strayan” language and her xenophobia presented at its finest in her maiden speech in Parliament.
She is part of a panel on The Verdict that will debate whether we should legalise marijuana for recreational purposes which is being explored by numerous State Governments in Australia.
Tell us tonight… Do you think recreational marijuana should be legalised in Australia and will you stand up with Pauline and announced whether you once, twice or three-times “puffed” on marijuana?
