The Breakfast Club's Charlamagne Tha God has clarified statements made by Kamala Harris during an interview on the New York-based radio show.
On Monday, Harris went on the show and was asked about her past with marijuana.
In her conversation with host Charlamagne, Envy and Angela Yee, Harris discussed her stance on legalization. When asked if she had ever smoked, she admitted to smoking a joint in college.
"I have. And I inhaled," she said. "I did inhale. It was a long time ago, but yes. I just broke news."
She was simultaneously asked by Charlamagne as well as DJ Envy about her general music choices as well as which tracks she played while getting lifted in her college days.
Later in the conversation, she was questioned about her choice of music when she got high, and she named Snoop Dogg and Tupac. However, Fox News was quick to point out that the Howard University alum graduated in 1986 before completing law school in 1989 and Tupac and Dr. Dre's first albums weren't released until the early 1990s.
"What were you listening to when you were high?" Charlamagne questioned.
At the same time, Envy asked what music she generally listens to.
"Definitely Snoop, Tupac for sure," the 54-year-old responded.
On Wednesday, Charlamagne clarified which question the presidential candidate had been responding to.
Per ABC News, Harris isn't the first presidential candidate to smoke. Our forever President Barack Obama shared in his book Dreams from My Father that he also engaged and that it was common practice while growing up in Hawaii.
In 2017, the half-Jamaican and half-Indian California native supported fellow 2020 candidate Cory Booker's Marijuana Justice Act. The initiative would push the needle forward in decriminalization by removing it from the illegal substances list and penalizing states with high rates of marijuana-related arrests affecting people of color.
