Oh, honey. During the question and answer period of last night’s Miss America Pageant, Miss Iowa actually said that.
As Twitchy reported, Miss California made a big whoopsie, too.
Miss California: euthanasia is a vaccine, right? Miss Iowa: marijuana should only be used for medicine or recreation. Advantage: IOWA—

Other Twitter users also delight in Miss Iowa’s pot slip of the tongue (and her name).
A little late on this, but I'm pretty sure Miss Iowa only made it to the top 5 because she's named "Mariah Cary."—

Hey Miss Iowa, I don't think marijuana should be used for anything other than recreational & medical use either.—

Heh. If only she had shown us some other uses in the talent portion of the contest.
Quick: Practice making a bong out of an old Mop & Glo bottle, Miss Iowa.
Shorter Miss Iowa: Do not use marijuana as a floor wax. Just say no, people.—

The account is unverified, but we think we know what was meant in that tweet as well: On stage.
Take heart, though, Miss Iowa. There is always YouTube!
Miss Iowa's answer about medical and recreational marijuana use will be all over YouTube tomorrow—
