On Tuesday the Democratic debate kicked off and Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey praised Senator Bernie Sanders for his support of medical marijuana.
Sanders recently had a heart attack and CNN’s Erin Burnett brought it up in a question about his health. Sanders said he was “healthy” and “feeling great” to which Booker said that Sanders is in favor of medical marijuana.
Sanders quipped, “I’m not on it tonight.”
Sanders said about his health, “Let me take this moment, if I might, to thank so many people from all over this country, including many of my colleagues up here, for their love, for their prayers, for their well wishes.”
He added, “And I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I’m so happy to be back here with you this evening.”
