Photos: Top ten politicians who've smoked pot
Number 6: John Kerry
He answered yes, as did fellow candidates Howard Dean and John Edwards. Kerry eventually bested both of them to win the 2004 Democratic Party nomination, only to be defeated in the general election by another alleged fellow weed enjoyer (see number 10).
Number 5: Arnold Schwarzenegger
We know, we know -- Schwarzenegger isn't a politician anymore, having left the California governorship to return to making terrible movies. But we include him here because marijuana use, to which he has readily admitted (he's seen puffing a joint in the 1975 film Pumping Iron), was one of the least controversial skeletons in his closet. During the '70s, he said he'd attended orgies; more recently, he fessed up about fathering a child out of wedlock with his housekeeper, precipitating the collapse of his marriage to Maria Shriver.
