Canadian Parliament, in fact:

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has smoked marijuana since he became an MP. … The Liberal leader said he last smoked marijuana about three years ago. It was at his house in Montreal, outside on a patio by the pool. “We had a few good friends over for a dinner party, our kids were at their grandmother’s for the night, and one of our friends lit a joint and passed it around. I had a puff,” he told HuffPost.

When will a member of Congress finally admit the same? For a review of US politicians who said they smoked pot before entering office, go here. Two names that might surprise you: Newt Gingrich and Clarence Thomas. By the way, the best part of the Trudeau interview:

Once, in British Columbia, he suspects, friends added hallucinogenic mushrooms to his spaghetti, but he never confirmed it. The mushrooms in his pasta seemed to have a bit more of an impact than they should have, he said.

Yes, who among us hasn’t confused indigestion with hallucinations.
