Former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard slammed Vice President Kamala Harris’ record on marijuana prosecution after Harris condemned Russia’s imprisonment of WNBA star Brittney Griner on a cannabis charge.

“Another note of hypocrisy coming from Kamala Harris and this administration is you mentioned during her illustrious record as attorney general in California…she kept prisoners in prison longer than their sentences to use them as free slave labor yet at the same time these very same people are condemning other countries for doing the exact same thing,” Gabbard told Fox News host Will Cain.

The article goes on to state the following:

Griner was sentenced by a Russian court to 9 years in prison this week after being caught with a cannabis vape pen at an airport near Moscow earlier this year.


Harris, who is working to secure Griner’s release said on Thursday via a tweet, “With today’s sentencing, Russia continues its wrongful detention of Brittney Griner. She should be released immediately. @POTUS and I, and our entire Administration, are working every day to reunite Brittney, as well as Paul Whelan, with loved ones who miss each of them dearly.”

While Gabbard opposes Griner’s sentence, she said in regard to the tweet from Harris, “Where is your outrage for your fellow Americans who are sitting in prison today here in the United States of America for minor marijuana violations. How come you are not fighting as hard for them to be returned home and reunited with their families as you are for Brittney Griner.”

She added that the message Harris is sending is that the rich and powerful of the United States will be treated differently than average Americans in regard to prosecuting marijuana crimes.

Gabbard said about Harris prosecuting marijuana offenders when she was California’s attorney general, “Unfortunately, like too many politicians, it seems that she puts her finger to the wind and decides the things she’s supposed to be angry about on any given day and if it becomes politically inconvenient or damaging then she’ll switch the other way.”
