Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said in a new interview that she supports the legalization of marijuana — admitting that she has used it herself, and unlike Bill Clinton, she inhaled.
“I did inhale,” Harris said, laughing, during a discussion posted Monday by “The Breakfast Club” program on New York’s 105.1 FM. “It was a long time ago, but yes. I just broke news!”
“Listen, I think [it] gives a lot of people joy,” she added. “And we need more joy.”
Harris, a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, looked to dispel a rumor raised by co-host Charlamagne tha God that the former district attorney does not support legalization.
“Half my family’s from Jamaica, are you kidding me?” she said. “I believe we need to legalize marijuana, and we need to research the impact of weed on a developing brain.”
Her support for legalizing weed is in line with the position of a majority of the country.
