In a profile published Friday, the newspaper spoke with several of Bush’s former classmatesfrom the elite Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., who portrayed the former Florida governor as a stoner and a bit of a bully.

Former classmate Peter Tibbetts told the Globe that he smoked marijuana for the first time with Bush and other classmates in the woods outside their dorm building. He recalled another time when he smoked hashish, or cannabis resin, in Bush’s dorm room to the tune of Steppenwolf’s 1968 hit “Magic Carpet Ride.”

“The first time I really got stoned was in Jeb’s room,” Tibbetts said. “He had a portable stereo with removable speakers. He put on Steppenwolf for me.”

Other former classmates described Bush as “physically imposing” and said he sometimes bullied smaller students. Tibbetts told the Globe that he regretted a bullying incident where he and Bush sewed a short classmate’s pajama bottoms shut.

The potential Republican presidential candidate has previously copped to youthful marijuana use and since opposed pot legalization efforts.

“I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I was at Andover,” Bush told the Globe. “It was pretty common.”

As for the Mitt Romney-style alleged bullying?

“I don’t believe that is true,” he told the Globe. “It was 44 years ago and it is not possible for me to remember.”

  1. As far as the bullying and smoking dope or any other negative aspects that will be discovered about Jeb……the controversy, corruption, problems can’t match Hillary Clinton……….ask the Secret Service or just pull up years of headlines. Jeb is a small timer compared to the Clintons.

  3. While I am not a Jeb Bush fan as far as a presidential run, his pot smoking is of no interest to me. After all we have a cocaine snorter currently running the three ring circus that our government has become.
