Cory Booker addressed Joe Biden's recent comments that marijuana is a "gateway drug," a view other presidential candidates did not share.
Where do the 2020 presidential candidates stand on marijuana reform? Here is a summary, in order of ranking.
Marijuana reform inspired two serious clashes at the latest presidential debates, with Booker taking on Biden, and Gabbard going after Harris.
This week saw Sen. Cory Booker aim directly at former Vice President Joe Biden, who released his extensive plan for criminal justice reform, which included Biden’s proposal to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule II drug.
Though 15.3 million viewers watched the candidates discuss a variety of topics pertinent to the American voter, Booker expressed disappointment over the one topic not debated—marijuana legalization.
Rep. Earl Blumenauer said that supporting marijuana prohibition and demonizing users is an inevitably losing strategy in the political sector moving forward.
Sen. Cory Booker (NJ-D) continues to try ways that might break him out from the pack in a crowded Democratic presidential primary, and one of those ways is promising serious cannabis reform if he was elected into office.
Bernie Sanders was adamant about the need to end the War on Drugs, believing marijuana legalization could go a long way to fixing the disparities that currently exist in the criminal justice system.
The 2020 presidential hopeful introduced the Marijuana Justice Act back in 2017, but it never made it out of the Senate. The bill would reschedule cannabis and legalize it at the federal level.
The Massachusetts Senator also shared how the STATES Act came to be behind the scenes.
