Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn't just a Democrat: She's also chair of the Democratic National Committee.
And, she just upset a lot of people.
Speaking with The New York Times Magazine, Wasserman Schultz said that she's identified "a complacency among the generation of young women whose entire lives have been lived after Roe v. Wade was decided."
The Democratic leader also expressed consternation that marijuana might be legalized – and she even connected legalizing marijuana with America's heroin epidemic.
"I don’t oppose the use of medical marijuana. I just don’t think we should legalize more mind-altering substances if we want to make it less likely that people travel down the path toward using drugs," Wasserman Schultz opined. "We have had a resurgence of drug use instead of a decline. There is a huge heroin epidemic."
She received swift criticism following her comments.
GQ reported the interview as, "DNC Head Debbie Wasserman Schultz said some stupid stuff about drugs" and The Intercept was even less charitable, headlining its story, "DNC chair, fueled by booze PACs, blasts legal pot."
Vox reported that the Florida congresswoman released a statement after the public's reaction, saying in part, "We need women of every generation – mine included – to stand up and speak out, and that is the main message I sought to convey in that interview."
