"We’ve got a good shot. I wouldn’t say it’s a great shot, but it’s on a good path," said Booker.
A senator in Puerto Rico commended President Biden's pardon and filed a bill to pardon marijuana possession.
Biden's cannabis pardon will affect the lives of thousands of people. Does this mean governors will have to follow the president's lead?

Sen. Booker (D-NJ), one of the co-sponsors of the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act (CAOA), praised the news.
