Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) clarified her positions regarding marijuana legalization in a recent interview, where she admitted to previous smoking weed and, unlike Bill Clinton, she did inhale. The admission came during an interview with The Breakfast Club, after co-host Charlamagne Tha God brought up rumors that Harris was anti-legalization.

“I did inhale,” Harris said, laughing. “It was a long time ago, but yes. I just broke news!”

Harris added that she’d smoked a joint in college and also recalled what music was playing in the background.

“Oh yeah, definitely Snoop. Tupac for sure,” she said.

The move is not exactly groundbreaking for Harris, who announced her presidential run last month. In her book released earlier this year, she also called for legalizing marijuana as means to dismantle the failed war on drugs. During the Breakfast Club interview, Harris added that half of her family is Jamaica, which supposedly aimed to underscore her marijuana roots, and that legalizing would open the doors to necessary cannabis research.

“But I am absolutely in favor of legalizing marijuana. We’ve got to do it. We have incarcerated so many particularly young men and young men of color in a way that we have not for the same level of use of other young men,” Harris said. “And we’ve got to deal with that in addition to dealing with the fact that not all drugs are the same, and when we’re talking about marijuana.”

While Harris wasn’t the strongest ally of cannabis reform as California’s attorney general, her record as senator has been rooted her within ending prohibition at the national level. Most notably, she added her name to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) legislation that would remove cannabis from the controlled substances list.

“Listen, I think [it] gives a lot of people joy,” Harris said. “And we need more joy.”
