Did Kamala Harris Pot Story Just Go Up In Smoke — High Times

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) that's a doozy.

The California lawmaker was asked about her stance on marijuana during an appearance on the radio show The Breakfast Club. "What was on? What song was on?" the host, Charlamagne tha God, said.

"What was you listening to when you was high?" "Was it Snoop?" Charlamagne asked".

"Oh yeah, definitely Snoop", Harris responds.

What did she say, anyway?

But the close proximity of the two questions could make it sound as if Harris were saying she listened to Tupac and Snoop Dogg in college ― which would be impossible since she graduated from Howard University in 1986, five years before Tupac's first album and six before Snoop Dogg's recording debut. Harris is, I was impressed with her authenticity. "At that time, Harris would have been studying law at UC Hastings; it seems unlikely that she would have been closely following underground Maryland hip-hop". Snoop made music prior to his first album, appearing on Dr. Dre's 1992 album "The Chronic" and the soundtrack of the 1992 film "Deep Cover", but they were both released years after Harris finished school.

Harris's campaign did not respond to Newsweek when asked about the discrepancy.

Kamala Harris supports legalizing marijuana, says she 'did inhale' in college
Day that she is officially throwing her hat into the ring and seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020. In addition, he lets her weigh in on some absurd claim out there that she's not really black and was raised in Canada.

And what was playing in the background when a young Kamala Harris was hitting a joint? As CNN details, as recently as 2010, when Harris was San Francisco's district attorney, she opposed legislation that would legalized marijuana in the Golden State.

Harris did, however, start working as a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, California, in 1990, where part of her job would have been to enforce existing drug laws. The piece said that, as an attorney, the senator sought to maintain wrongful convictions "secured through official misconduct".

Harris also admitted that she'd smoked a joint in college.

"Kamala Harris has spent her career fighting for reforms in the criminal justice system and pushing the envelope to keep everyone safer by bringing fairness and accountability", a spokesperson for Harris told Vox last month.

Reason's Scott Shackford also wrote that Harris isn't being forthright when it comes to not previously being opposed to marijuana legalization. "Harris supports the legal use of medicinal marijuana but does not support anything beyond that".

A rep for Harris on Tuesday called the comment a miscommunication.
