Kamala Harris: ‘I Believe We Need to Legalize Marijuana’

Monday on iHeartRadio’s “The Breakfast Club,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, voiced her support for legalizing marijuana.

However, it was with some caveats.

“Let me make this statement very clear: I believe we need to legalize marijuana,” Harris said. “Now that being said, and this is not a ‘but,’ this is an ‘and’ — and we need to research, which is one of the reasons we need to legalize it, we need to move it on the schedule so we can research the impact of weed on a developing brain. You know, that part of the brain that develops judgment actually begins its growth at age 18 through 24.”

Harris added the other issue was measuring impairment in terms of driving.
