Kamala Harris on legalizing pot: 'Half my family is from Jamaica -- are you kidding me?'

Kamala Harris on legalizing pot: ‘Half my family is from Jamaica — are you kidding me?’

In a stark contrast to Bill Clinton’s infamous “I didn’t inhale” response to questions about his alleged past use of marijuana, California senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris proudly declared that she’s smoked before, and she did in fact inhale.

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club radio show this Monday morning, Harris was asked by host Charlamagne tha God about rumors that claim she’s opposed to the legalization of marijuana, to which Harris responded, “That’s not true.”

“And look, I joke about it — half joking — half my family is from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?” she said to an eruption of laughter in the studio.

Later in the segment, Charlamagne asked the question everyone wanted to know: “Have you ever smoked?”

“I have,” Harris responded matter of factly. “And I did inhale.”

1. Because anyone and everyone from Jamaica, and their entire family, has of course smoked pot

6. I agree


And whether one is a member of that group doesn't make stereotyping any better.

The takeaway here is that we should assume all Jamaicans have smoked pot, I guess.

3. Are you kidding me?

After all of the atrocities that have been forced down our throats as the new normal by the current dumpster fire, is anybody going to actually pretend that we should care if somebody smoked pot? Really? if only this is what we were shocked and insulted by with IQ45.

4. It likely helps her.

A push for legalization has more authenticity if the politician pushing for it has smoked before.
