“Angered by the senator’s stance on marijuana laws, an old classmate of Norm Coleman reminded the Minnesota Republican of his college days smoking joints in a dorm room, Roll Call reports. Norm Kent, Coleman’s classmate at Hofstra University in New York, sent Coleman a letter reminiscing about their hazy times during college, such as when Coleman smoked pot while standing on the roof of a campus building during a protest. ‘Welcome to the crowd of those who have become a likeness of which they despised,’ Kent wrote in the letter posted at celebstoner.com. ‘Welcome to the mindless myriad of legislators who gather in cocktail lounges to manhandle their martinis while passing laws against drunk driving.’ Kent, who is a board member of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, was upset after receiving a form letter from Coleman noting his opposition to marijuana legalization…. ‘Years ago, in a lifetime far away, you did not oppose the legalization of marijuana,’ Kent says in the letter, reminding Coleman when ‘you, me … and a wealth of other students smoked dope.’”The Raw Story | Republican senator's hazy past revealed by former classmate
