Former President Bill Clinton made a marijuana-related joke during a Clinton Global Initiative event on Wednesday with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

At the event discussing agricultural and rural issues, Vilsack called attention to the lack of things that one can plant in urban areas.
 
“Now with the exception of the state of Colorado and a few other states that legalized another product, there are not many commodities you can plant,” Vilsack said.
 
Clinton responded: “Dear Lord. That’s all I need. One more story. If only the marijuana growers would invite me to give a speech.”
 
He also joked that he does not send emails.
 
“I’ve found people have said embarrassing things on email and I didn’t want to be one of them,” the former president said.
