Then-senator Harris, who was also a 2020 presidential candidate, supported legalizing marijuana at the federal level in 2019, saying that she smoked pot in college during an interview with a radio program hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne tha God.

Harris did clarify that she used the drug “a long time ago” during the interview and that more research needs to be done on the effects of marijuana on young developing brains.
