Three top Senate Democrats have vowed to work towards the legalisation of marijuana this year, including majority leader Chuck Schumer. Sen Schumer, alongside New Jersey Sen Cory Booker and Oregon Sen Ron Wyden released a joint statement on Monday declaring their intention to push forward major cannabis policy reform.
“The War on Drugs has been a war on people—particularly people of colour,” the statement reads.
“Ending the federal marijuana prohibition is necessary to right the wrongs of this failed war and end decades of harm inflicted on communities of colour across the country.”Dems Move To Legalize Weed Nation Wide! – YouTube
