Harris Calls for Legalization of Pot to ‘Restore Justice’

Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris on Saturday called for legalization of marijuana at the federal level in order to “restore justice.”

“It’s time we legalize marijuana at the federal level and restore justice to our communities,” she tweeted. “Communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs. We must reverse this trend.”

Harris writes in her new book that she backs legalization and the clearing of convictions for non-violent offenses associated with marijuana.
