Donald Trump, despite all of the flack he is getting for his comments, he still looks like a contender, as he currently leads the GOP in the latest polls
. We havent heard much about his stance on drugs yet, because he has been constantly putting his foot in his mouth, but in the past, here is what Donald Trump has to say about Drug Laws:
- He wants to legalize drugs and use tax revenue to fund drug education. (Apr 2011)
- He never drinks, smokes, nor does drugs. (Feb 2011)
- He fired Miss USA crown winner due to drug over-indulgence. (Dec 2006)
- He has never touched drugs, nor alcohol, tobacco, or coffee. (Jul 2000)
Direct quotes from Trump:
Trump argued in 1990 that the only way to win the War on Drugs was to legalize drugs and use the tax revenue to fund drug education programs. As he put it, “You have to take the profit away from these drug czars.” In his 2000 book, The America We Deserve, he stated that he’d never tried drugs “of any kind.”Source: Tim Murphy in Mother Jones magazine , Apr 20, 2011
Never drinks, smokes, nor does drugs
Donald Trump’s Brother’s Death and How it Affected His Life: He has had some hard life lessons like when his brother died from extreme alcoholism. He told Donald Trump repeatedly not to drink or smoke. Trump lived by those words because his brother had taught him so much, and he had looked up to him. To this day, he has never drank alcohol, smoked or done drugs. Perhaps, that is what makes Donald Trump who he is, unwavering discipline.

Fired Miss USA crown winner due to drug over-indulgence
Miss USA Tara Conner–who hits the legal drinking age of 21 today–has been exposed as a hard-partying habitu‚ of Big Apple clubs, where sources say she has worked her way through a long line of men while indulging an appetite for cocaine.
But oddly enough, Donald Trump doesn’t seem to think that Tara Conner’s drug-craze sits too well with how Miss USA is supposed to behave, and it looks like there’s every chance that he’s going to go medieval on her: ” We have hundreds of thousands of young women around the world who look up to Miss USA and Miss Universe, and it’s really important to set a high standard. There’s no question that she’s a party girl.”
It’s expected that tomorrow Donald Trump will decide if Tara Conner–who’s hiding out at home in Kentucky with her parents–will be able to keep her Miss USA crown or whether it’ll be passed on to someone more suitable. [Trump fired Miss Conner].

Never touched drugs, nor alcohol, tobacco, or coffee
I’ve never taken drugs of any kind, never had a glass of alcohol. Never had a cigarette, never had a cup of coffee.
