'I did inhale!' Kamala Harris pulls a giggly U-turn on pot legalization

"Look, I love my husband, and he happened to be the one that I chose to marry, because I love him - and that was that moment in time, and that's it", Ms Harris said. "Are you kidding me?" she said with a chuckle.

Harris was also asked if she would smoke pot if it were legalized.

Since arriving in the Senate, Harris has made a point of applying her experience in the criminal justice system to propose solutions for reform.

"So I was born in Oakland, and raised in the United States except for the years that I was in high school in Montreal, Canada", Harris responded. "And we need to expunge nonviolent marijuana-related offenses from the records of millions of people who have been arrested and incarcerated so they can get on with their lives". And we need more joy'. Members of the Silent Generation continue to be the least supportive of legalization (39%), but they have become more supportive in the past year.

Throughout the interview, Harris also responded to critics who have attacked her Blackness because her parents are Indian and Jamaican immigrants. A few years ago, Harris, as a state attorney general, was reluctant to endorse marijuana legalization in California, which for the longest time was a third rail opinion.

In 1992, Clinton admitted to smoking the drug when he was in college but said that he had not inhaled, implying it did not count.

"Have you ever smoked?" asked Charlamagne.

Instead, he teamed up with Richardson again for the 1963 film version of Henry Fielding's classic comic novel Tom Jones . His screen breakthrough came later that year in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning , which rocketed him to stardom.

"I think that gives people a lot of joy", she continued, "and we need more joy". "Now that being said, and this is not a "but, ' this is an 'and" - and we need to research, which is one of the reasons we need to legalize it, we need to move it on the schedule so we can research the impact of weed on a developing brain".

Despite her past rhetoric, Harris has earned an A rating from NORML.

California Senator Kamala Harris says that she supports legalizing marijuana, which, she said, "gives a lot of people joy". In 2014, when she was running for re-election as California's attorney general, Harris faced a Republican opponent who supported legalizing the drug.

Harris, 54, announced her bid for 2020 last week on ABC's Good Morning America. Almost 60 percent of Americans said they supported legalizing marijuana in a Fox News Poll released a year ago.

"But I am absolutely in favor of legalizing marijuana".

"Right now in this country people are being arrested, being prosecuted, and end up spending time in jail or prison all due to their use of a drug that otherwise should be considered legal", she said in a press release. Cory Booker of New Jersey, a rival for the Democratic presidential nomination - that would end the federal marijuana prohibition.
