Kamala Harris’ Criminal Justice Policies Are Under Scrutiny After Tupac-Weed Snafu

Kamala Harris’ Criminal Justice Policies Are Under Scrutiny After Tupac-Weed Snafu

When asked if she ever smoked, Harris said she did, back in college.

Another co-host, Charlamagne tha God, interjected and asked her what she listened to when she smoked.

"Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state's attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent", Lara Bazelon, the former director of the Loyola Law School Project for the Innocent in Los Angeles, wrote in a New York Times op-ed a week before Harris announced her candidacy.

Several media outlets and online pundits questioned the California lawmaker seemingly saying she listened to Snoop Dogg and 2Pac while getting high.

"The political aspect of Kamala's interview is she's caught in a weird lie", McCain said.

Tupac released his debut album "2Pacalypse Now" in 1991, while Snoop Dogg released his debut album "Doggystyle" in 1993. If you don't like Kamala, cool. In an interview spanning a number of topics, many honed in on the Democratic presidential candidate's reply to the question of whether she smoked marijuana.

If Harris was telling the truth about marijuana, and if she was telling the truth about listening to Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur while smoking her joint, she couldn't have been telling the truth about when this lawbreaking happened.

"Everybody jokes, sometimes I just turn on "Be Careful Of Me", she chuckled (the song title is "Be Careful", the lyric "be careful with me"). Maybe she doesn't remember what music was on.

The radio hosts failed to check Harris on the inaccurate info and quickly pivoted to a discussion about current rapper Cardi B.

Black Twitter is already on guard based on Harris' record as a prosecutor in Northern California. "I'm pretty sure Kamala Harris does not need political advice from @MeghanMcCain".

"I'm sorry, but I'm not gonna be able to suss out the music she listened to 35 years ago right now".

Harris did, however, start working as a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, California, in 1990, where part of her job would have been to enforce existing drug laws.

Another added, "If she was smoking weed and listening to Snoop Dogg that was the early 90s".

The senator faces strong opposition from the social justice/socialist left, who have rallied behind the slogan "Kamala Harris is a cop", citing her past prosecutorial work and campaigns touting a tough law-and-order record.
