‘Sit this one out’: Kamala Harris ‘Community Noted’ all the way back to San Francisco

Vice President Kamala Harris got “Community Noted” all the way back to San Francisco in the early 2000s when she took advantage of 420 Day to plug legal weed.

“Nobody should have to go to jail for smoking weed. We must continue to change our nation’s approach to marijuana while reforming the justice system so it finally lives up to its name,” Harris tweeted while promoting a similar quote from President Biden.

Community Notes weighed in to say, “As district attorney, Kamala Harris oversaw 1,900 marijuana convictions, some of which resulted in jail time.”
