You Won’t Believe What Kamala Had to Say About Brittney Griner

Vice President Kamala Harris was accused of hypocrisy after she decried Brittney Griner’s conviction by Russia on cannabis smuggling charges — despite Harris prosecuting thousands of similar marijuana possession cases in her earlier career as a prosecutor.

Griner, 31, was sentenced on Thursday to nine years in prison after she admitted to bringing vape cartridges containing cannabis oil into the country. The WNBA star said she had been prescribed the oil to help relieve pain related to her chronic injuries and had accidentally packed them in her luggage.

The verdict was met with universal condemnation from US diplomats and government officials, led by President Biden, who called the sentence “unacceptable” and demanded that Russia release both Griner and a second jailed American, Paul Whelan, “immediately.”

Harris released a separate statement on Twitter condemning Griner’s conviction.

“With today’s sentencing, Russia continues its wrongful detention of Brittney Griner. She should be released immediately,” Harris wrote. “@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.”

But Harris’ many critics were quick to point out that while serving as both San Francisco’s district attorney and California’s attorney general, she oversaw thousands of marijuana-related prosecutions and was an outspoken critic of pot legalization, as the Daily Mail first reported.

“Brittney Griner got 9 years for drug possession in Russia… which sounds like most of the criminal sentences Kamala Harris got people for the same thing when she was attorney general of California,” author Tim Young tweeted.

Another commenter wrote: “LMAO, didn’t U lock up a s—load of people for weed? Then bragged about it, and went on to say you smoked weed in college listening to Tupac and snoop before they cut their first albums?”

A third fumed in the same vein: “You locked up people for possession of marijuana. And you’re only condemning this because the US cannot profit from her incarceration in Russia.”

The San Jose Mercury News reported in 2019 that during Harris’ tenure as San Francisco’s top prosecutor between 2004-2010, her office handled more than 1,900 marijuana convictions — although it has been pointed out that most of those arrested for low-level possession were spared prison time, and only a few dozen were incarcerated.

Harris was elected the Golden State’s attorney general in 2011 and had a further 1,970 people locked up for marijuana offenses on her watch, according to an investigation by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative publication.

Harris also vocally opposed California’s marijuana legalization ballot initiative, which ultimately passed in 2016.

She only threw her support behind legalization around 2018, even endorsing a bill which would have removed cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act, reported Forbes. She also wrote a book in which she argued for the decriminalization of cannabis.

By the time Harris radically changed her stance on marijuana, there was already talk of her running for president.

Harris famously sparred with Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard during a Democratic presidential debate in 2019 after Gabbard brought up her record of throwing people in prison for marijuana possession.

“She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard said, referring to Harris’ interview with the radio show “The Breakfast Club.”

In that sitdown, the White House contender — and former prosecutor — admitted with a laugh that she had smoked marijuana in college, saying: “I have. And I inhaled — I did inhale. It was a long time ago. But, yes.”

  1. November 2022 is coming. Get control of the Congress back into the hands of those that have this countries best interest at heart. Make Biden/Harris inert.

    • The only thing ‘heels up’ harris’s good for other than a screw is a few laughs at that. Living in San Francisc, ‘heels up’s former stomping ground ( heels up’, her moniker from the beginning as she screwed willie brown for the San Francisco district attorney position despite not being qualified for the job) she was one of the worst district attorneys deciding which cases deserved jail and which ones got a slap on the wrists. i won’t elaborate on her background but for the most part she screwed her way to where she is today flim flamming and bulls******g her way. and doesn’t give a rats a** who she destroys or hurts as long as it advances her own personal agenda. From district attorney she went onto California attorney general and to state senator. Just how someone with no legal experience as district attorney got higher and higher legal positions begulies the mind to say the least. This is either the result of voter fraud or voter incompetence as their aren’t enough fools in California that would spit or piss on this worthless POS if she was on fire. Hopefully with the mid terms coming up in November, the people will have had enough of this iworthless clown’s ncompetence, ineptitude and utter BS. She seems to think the American people are stupid and accept her clownish antics and will give her thumbs up when it comes time for releection. God help us if she and slow joe get another term to screw us deeper into the ground that they’ve been able to do in the last 2 excruciatingly painful years. If people haven’t gotten smart and got their heads out of their butts by now and realize this is no longer acceptable and got off their asses on election day in November and vote out this disgrace, nothing will happen anthey’re clueless and beyond help. Two more years of this will be the end of the America we know. If this isn’t the wake up call, just what will be the wake up call. As whoopie cushion goldberg( a liberal windbag that i can’t stand but said something appropriate to this situation) said in sister act: “wake up, pay attention, ’cause it’s later than you think”. Time to wake up and the sooner the better.

  2. The “Griner Thing” is no big deal. I say she got her own stupid self into this, let her get her own stupid self out of it. If she has to serve time in Russia, tough! But the way it is turning out is a big deal, and it angers me. In my opinion, the U.S.A. government should not even be involved in this. Griner made a mistake in a foreign country — tough. Why in the hell should our government be interested in “trading” her fredom for an evil murderer’s freedom? That makes absolutely NO sense. Griner hates America. What is our government doing for the Americans who have been sitting in American prisons for months because they were spotted at the Jan. 6 fiasco? Nothing! They are not criminals, and they were at the rally because they LOVE America. What is our government doing for the Americans and American sympathizers who were LEFT IN THE AFGANISTAN FIASCO? NOTHING! In my opinion, our disgusting government is trying to “negotiate” a switch to get Briner back because: 1. she is an athlete, 2. she is black, 3. she is a pot-head, and 4. she (like the other far left) hates America.

  3. Kamala, what a joke. She was either lying then, or lying now. Doesn’t matter she lies ALL the time. She was horrid in Ca, and is even worse now. Of course she will stand up for a woman of color even though what she did was wrong and admits to it. If she wasn’t black, we wouldn’t be hearing about this. Look at the WHITE guy that’s been there for over 2 years on trumped up charges and nothing about him till this spoiled girl got caught. Maybe if we would let them suffer the consequences of their crimes all over this country, maybe it would stop.

  4. Just goes to prove how crooked and corrupt the Democratic Party is, they all should be sent to Russia and let Putin handle them. The Democratic Party is nothing but a worthless criminal mafia organization that is ruining this Country.

    • At least the Mafia or as we italians ( even the non Sicilians) call it ‘la cosa nostra’, English translation : ‘our thing’ has some sort of honor system. Nobody rats out anyone under penalty of ‘la omerta’ .With the liberals ther’es no loyalty as it’s every man for himself and screw everyone else. That about sums it up in as few words as possible

  5. Just like Face Book, have double standards as I did not make this comment before, don’t worry though as I am sending your messages to the junk folder.

  6. Griner has been making money playing in Russia for several years. Before the conflict over
    Ukraine, Russian officials had probably turned a blind eye to her bringing in the same stuff. She probably brought it in through US customs, getting a pass because of her “special status” America hater, black, female, lesbian, etc.
    Cackala Harris is just being the same hypocrite she has always been. She’s probably also upset that the special fund she pushed to pay rioter’s bail didn’t work in Russia.
