“So much fun!” Omar captioned one post.

She also shared another user’s post that said, “Congresswoman [Omar] jamming with [Marijuana Deathsquads] is 10000 times better than Bill Clinton playing sax,” referencing the former Democratic president’s talent with the saxophone.

Omar is a supporter of legalizing cannabis and marijuana use on the federal level and expunging nonviolent marijuana-related convictions.
