Records do lie, if you are using them to assume the future. Harris is a good example of that.

Harris sponsored the Senate version of a bill which would deschedule marijuana and expunge federal convictions, came out in favor of legalization in 2018 and signed/sponsored several bills following through on that. She has repeatedly called for the legalization of marijuana and her record over the last several years is consistent with that position.

If you stood up in 2018 and said that Harris' past would predict her future, you would be dead wrong.

She changed sides after California turned against her. She switched sides on the issue because of popularity not conviction. Decriminalization is not a price of her moral fiber. She is just doing what politicians do, trying to be electable.

...yeah, exactly.

That was kind of my point. I honestly don't care if it is based on "conviction". Both Biden and Kamala changed positions on numerous issues. That's all that really matters. Like you said, politicians try to be electable (remember when I said early that changing positions was natural for politicians?). As such, I don't understand the assumption that they will sabotage that electability and go "ha, jk" as soon as they take power.
