    Though she coauthored an official voter guide argument opposing a California cannabis legalization measure as a prosecutor in 2010 and laughed in the face of a reporter who asked her about the issue in 2014, she went on to sponsor legislation to federally deschedule marijuana in 2019.

    The reason Kamala Harris was a bad presidential candidate is the reason she could be a good vice presidential candidate

    It remains to be seen whether she will push Biden in the same direction, as the former vice president has maintained opposition to ending marijuana prohibition, despite supermajority support among Democrats.

    While Harris, a former attorney general of California, made marijuana reform a major component of her criminal justice platform when she ran in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, she’s been less vocal about the issue since dropping out in December 2019.

    Convincing Biden to come around seems like a steep task in any case. Some advocates suspect that the Democratic National Committee’s platform committee voted against an amendment to add legalization as a 2020 party plank specifically because it’s at odds with the presumptive nominee’s agenda. Biden has drawn the line at decriminalizing marijuana possession, expunging past convictions, modest federal rescheduling, medical cannabis legalization, and letting states set their own policies.

    But it remains the case that Harris is the chief Senate sponsor of the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act — a comprehensive piece of legalization legislation that includes various social equity and restorative justice provisions. Advocates will be watching to see if she continues to advocate for the reform move as she’s on-boarded to the Biden campaign.

    Don't hold your breath and then think twice about what you're asking for.

    Many states are already legal and have an upwards of 25% tax, can you imagine another federal cannabis tax on top of that?!

    Besides, the homewreckin hussy blow job queen Kamala ain't gonna do shit for you, just expect a lot of virtue signalling political windbaggery for votes.

    There is a new city block hustler on the street corner and it's the state, with the pandemic this never seemed more apparent. The weed stores are now sliging weed all day in open site in the middle of the parking lot as customers are no longer allowed it. Just like a bunch of junkies and street dealers it's a disgusting sight to see.

    Harris was the attorney general of CA, during the push for legalization from prop 420 to 215, and she single handedly took down the Hothouse tomato Brothers and stopped their attempt to start the first ever legal commercial grow in Isleton Ca 2009 - 11. Neither brother are alive today to speak up....google it to learn the truth.

    As prosecutor Kamala Harris, and the D.A.'s office obtained more than 1,900 convictions for marijuana offenses!

    pro marijuana???

    no.


    Harris's successor as D.A., George Gascón, expunged all San Francisco marijuana offenses going back to 1975

    This bitch ain't no good.....

    If the Dems win the election I believe MJ legalization will occur naturally as an arm of police reform.

    Well, we need to coral COVID, jump start economy and businesses. Yes Obama mentioned legalization...it wasn't the "right" time back then Obama 2.0.

    Now, I think, more than ever, to open the possibility of cannabis research, therefore cannabis regulation is here. Both Kamala and Joe are starting to understand the positive aspects of cannabis.

    Not for me and others like me. If I get lucky I'll live thru maybe 3 to 5 more elections. I dont have time to wait another 4 years when re election starts and Kamala wants to get elected and gets off her ass to do something.

    Its a quality of life issue for me and directly affects how my final years will be lived. I have health issues and jail is a death sentence. The medicine I grow keeps me upright and I am tired of the stress of wondering if local Sherriff Billy Bob is going to kick my door in some night

    Perhaps lack of COVID response, high unemployment, businesses collapsing, evictions, social justice have interfered with the "veto" of the 2020 Democratic Party Platform.

    Joe and Kamala have heard enough stories, prosecuted cases. Changes in thinking, the correctional system is not needed for possession of cannabis. And, possibly, with more research (allow for research), cannabis can be helpful to the masses.

    I wouldn't dismiss it, but there are more important issues at stake.

    Feel this deserves a thought out response given more time. For me seeing some of others' comments critique can be surprising disheartening shocking. What I mean to say, where my views are on a spectrum may align with one individual running for office, but it doesn't mean I feel an entire political party aligns with my own views or not for that matter. It appears we have a current figure in office who does not like immigration - which is I thought the definition of this country we were all or not read the same made up history books? Wants to stop immigration and has a problem with athletes - I don't remember another time when a political figure had so much bad stuff to say about so many others. When you look at how many times names appear like Bush and Clinton for example it looks more like a royal family. Sometimes you may feel like you have an opinion in the minority that doesn't mean you have to change necessarily - for example I see clean water as a human right I would not call free water socialism, the way some people phrase words it can seem like they want to sell air, evidence is denying that pollution happens and exists.
    There's the Speaker's Corner, but I feel, being in the marijuana realm of news, people can see it for what it might be and could be.

    People trashing isn't the goal here that's rampant in The Speaker's Corner.

    Thanks, Art, for your viewpoints. Well taken.

    Step in the right cannabis direction, low on the list of priorities,
    given the scope of the previous administration's fuckery.

    Maybe slip in some cannabis relaxed legislation after the mid terms.

    We'll see.

    I’ll say as long as those are our choices, we should work between elections to build better ways of choosing: personally I hate all the “cannabis legislation“ I’ve seen so far, enacted or not. I’m a “legal like tomatoes” guy, and I’m going to push for that.

    Policies exist because people put them together and develop them and push them and win others over. Yeah, who wants to be an activist?

    Well, *me*, if it means I can finally grow, gift, and receive.
