Kamala Harris, reiterating her support for marijuana legalization at the federal level, acknowledged Monday that she's smoked pot in the past, saying: "I have".
Harris's comments follow those of fellow Democratic senator and 2020 candidate, Cory Booker, who kicked off his campaign earlier this month by calling for legalizing marijuana as an essential part of criminal justice reform. "What it did for me, is it made me cough a lot".
"I have. And I did inhale", she said, laughing. "And we need more joy", she said. Her response was as telling as it was curiously candid: "Listen, I think it gives a lot of people joy. I just broke news", Harris added, according to Politico. "Half my family is from Jamaica, are you kidding me?"

"We have incarcerated so many - and particularly young men and young men of color - in a way that we have not for the same level of use (among) other young men". "Today, I'm announcing my support for @CoryBooker's Marijuana Justice Act", she tweeted in May of a year ago. "We've got to do it", she said later in the interview.
