Before being crowned Miss Universe 2018, the successful contestant from the Philippines was asked to weigh in on the legalization of marijuana.
“I’m for it being used in a medical use,” Catriona Gray said on Sunday during the pageant’s question-and-answer round. “But not so for recreational use.”
“Because I think if people were to argue, ‘What about alcohol and cigarettes?’ Well, everything is good but in moderation.”
Here's Catriona Gray's answer to "What is your opinion on the legalization of marijuana?" #MissUniverse
