Senator Kamala Harris made a quite controversial revelation in a recent radio interview on The Breakfast Club with co-host Charlamagne Tha God when she revealed she had tried marijuana while being at college and what is more, she even used to enjoy albums from rappers like Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.

The senator also explained that she would like the consumption of weed to be legalized because she still remembered what the feeling was.

However, this could not be right because if Harris’ words were to be true, this means she must have been listening to albums that were recorded much later in time.

The senator from California, who has recently announced that she is going to run for president in the 2020 election, claimed she had smoked the drug for recreational purposes.

Then, Charlamagne Tha God asked about what music Harris used to listen to when getting high.

Harris answered in a light manner by saying her musical choice for the occasion was Tupac and Snoop Dog.  

However, Harris graduated Howard University in Washington D.C. in 1986 and then continued with her education in California, where she studied law at the Hastings College of law, which she finished by passing the bar in 1990.

Furthermore, Tupac Shakur’s first album,  2Pacalypse Now, hit the stores in 1991, one year after Harris completed her studies.

Snoop Dog’s debut album followed two years later when he arrived on the musical scene with Doggystyle, which he recorded with Dr. Dre in 1992.

So, was Harris lying to appear authentic or was it an honest mistake? Either way, a hungry media looking for drama and opponents trying to take her down tried their best to capitalize on the misstep.

Harris, who is a very shrewd politician, tried to change the subject by rolling out the endorsement of progressive icon Barbara Lee a few days later.

Lee said in a statement: "Watching Kamala's career in the East Bay and San Francisco for 20 years, I've witnessed her deep passion for justice and opportunity and I know she will be a president truly of the people, by the people, and for the people."

what do you think of Harris' marijuana story?
