Meghan McCain Wants to Legalize Marijuana, Says She Doesn't Use It 'Frequently'

Meghan McCain has officially gone green – as in, marijuana green.

During an appearance on Tuesday's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, McCain discussed her new book, America, You Sexy Bitch, which includes a section about her advocating for the legalization of pot.

"I was living in Los Angeles very briefly last year, and I was shocked at how people here smoke weed the way people in New York pour wine," she said. "Once I started doing research onto the economic benefits for our country by decriminalizing marijuana, I decided to come out publicly in support of it."

The Arizona native may deny she likes women, but that's not keeping her away from surrounding herself with people who date the same sex.

Sarah Palin, John McCain Disparage HBO's Game Change

Neither appears to have seen it, but Sarah Palin and John McCain both took shots this weekend at Game Change, the HBO movie about their unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign. The film premiered Saturday night.

Palin, 48, portrayed in the film by Julianne Moore, told Fox News before the premiere that she was "not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about."

She added: "I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's 'Team Obama' isn't top of my list."

Cindy McCain, the wife of U.S. Senator and former GOP presidential candidate John McCain, has suffered from severe migraines for over 15 years but has never spoken out about it – until now.

In this week's PEOPLE magazine, McCain, 54, reveals her painful condition in the hope of raising awareness and encouraging more research. She says one of her first challenges was finding the words to describe how painful the headaches can be. When she first told her husband, a former POW during the Vietnam War, she used a word she knew he would understand.

"Torture," she says. "Being tied to a chair for four days. I can't imagine how unbearable that pain must have been, but yeah, I can, because a migraine may come close."

John McCain wasn't the only family member to suffer a loss after November's presidential race. Daughter Meghan says her love life has flatlined as well.

"The election killed my personal life," she writes in a Daily Beast blog. "Nothing kills my libido quite like discussing politics."

The 24-year-old, who was an active campaigner for her Republican father's presidential bid, writes that she's "become something I used to despise: people who let politics dictate his or her attraction to someone." She adds that her aversion extends not just to those on the left, but to McCain superfans as well.
