MAYOR FAILED TO INHALE - BUT HIS WEED WASN'T POT

Like President Clinton, New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he didn't inhale.

Not that the mayor has ever touched a joint - he was talking about cigarettes.Giuliani reminisced about his flirtation with tobacco on Monday, when the city's tough anti-smoking law took effect. "I never actually learned how to inhale a cigarette, which is why I then turned to pipes and cigars."

Clinton said during the 1992 presidential campaign that he tried marijuana but never inhaled. Nobody asked Giuliani about it, but his spokeswoman assured reporters that the mayor has "never, ever puffed, smoked, dragged, inhaled experimented with marijuana."
