Kamala Harris says she has smoked pot and supports marijuana legalization

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Presidential candidate senator Kamala Harris is openly supporting the legalization of marijuana.

In an interview Monday, Harris told the hosts of New York City radio show “The Breakfast Club” she tried weed, a joint specifically, in college.

She also said marijuana should be moved on the schedule and legalized so more research can be done.

Harris said cannabis “gives a lot of people joy and we need more joy.”

Harris’ stance aligns herself with a growing movement in the democratic party and some republicans to legalize marijuana.
