Miss Iowa managed to finish fifth at this year's Miss America pageant, but she may be remembered more for her answer to a question about marijuana.

Near the end of Saturday night's pageant in Las Vegas, Mariah Cary of Burlington was asked whether marijuana should be legalized for recreational use.

Initially, Cary seemed to say that she supported marijuana use only for medical purposes. But at the end of her answer, Cary said she thinks marijuana should not be used for anything but recreational use and health care.

Cary is a junior at Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids. Miss New York Mallory Hagan won the Miss America title.
