Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), a potential 2016 presidential candidate, made clear that unlike a few other possible contenders in the GOP primary, he hasn’t smoked weed when he was a teenager.

“No,” Walker said according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Wednesday. “The wildest thing I did in college was have a beer.”

Other Republicans who appear to be gearing up to run for president in 2016 have recently admitted that they did take that wild step of smoking weed.

Earlier in the week Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he smoked weed as a teenager. The Boston Globe also quoted former Gov. Jeb Bush (R) saying that as a teenager he smoked marijuana in addition to drinking alcohol.
