Vice President Kamala Harris has admitted to smoking pot in the past, she even said she inhaled.
Yet the Biden White House has just cut some staffers for doing the same thing.
Many people on the left will see this as a massive betrayal.
FOX News reports:
WH axes staffers over past pot use even though Kamala Harris has admitted she smoked it
The White House revealed that a handful of staffers were let go over past pot use, even though Vice President Kamala Harris has publicly admitted to smoking weed in college.
Then-senator Harris, who was also a 2020 presidential candidate, supported legalizing marijuana at the federal level in 2019, saying that she smoked pot in college during an interview with a radio program hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne tha God.
“I have [smoked marijuana]. And I inhaled. I did inhale,” Harris said. “I think it gives a lot of people joy. And we need more joy in the world.”
Harris did clarify that she used the drug “a long time ago” during the interview and that more research needs to be done on the effects of marijuana on young developing brains.
You can tell how the left feels about this by simply looking at the way the liberal media types are covering it.
Dozens of young White House staffers have been suspended or asked to resign due to past marijuana use, despite initial indications from the Biden admin that recreational use of cannabis would not be immediately disqualifying for would-be personnel https://t.co/S8a6Xx3dPc

This is an excellent policy if you want to either disqualify talented people from working in the White House or push ambitious people who want to work in the White House to lie during the screening process. https://t.co/jXK2zfAFEg
