Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard touted marijuana decriminalization in a video Friday, weeks after blasting rival Kamala Harris for putting “1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laugh[ing] about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana” during the July primary debates.
“America means freedom. How can we still be incarcerating people for using marijuana? This is counter to everything we stand for. As president, I’ll end the federal prohibition on marijuana, end mass incarceration, and reform our criminal justice system,” the Democratic Hawaii representative said in the video posted on Twitter.
