Stephen Harper Doesn’t Drink Alcohol, Except When He Does (PHOTOS)

Stephen Harper has made his distaste for marijuana clear and now he’s touting his teetotalling too.

At an event last week at which he cracked jokes about Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s plan to legalize pot, the prime minister said “I don’t drink alcohol, but I have lots of friends who do,” according to The National Post.

Harper’s claim to abstain isn’t exactly backed up by the photographic record (see below).

And then there are the comments he made in 2004 while leader of the Canadian Alliance.

“I like to tell people I was offered a joint once, but I was too drunk to smoke it,” Harper joked.
