If Chuck Schumer and the Democrats get their way, marijuana will soon be legalized at the federal level.
“In an effort to federally legalize cannabis, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), and two other congressmen, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), will unveil a comprehensive marijuana reform bill called the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act, two sources leaked to Marijuana Moment,”… according to The Hill. [emphasis added]
“In February, Schumer mentioned that he, along with Wyden and Booker, would introduce a bill to advocates, and in April, in lieu of 420, the majority leader said in a cannabis rally in New York City that change was going to happen.
“‘It’s not enough in my view to just end cannabis prohibition,’ Schumer said in February, Marijuana Moment reported. ‘I think we need to restore the lives of people who’ve been hurt most by the failed war on drugs and especially black Americans.’ [emphasis added]
“Not only will Schumer’s marijuana reform bill ‘ensure restorative justice, public health and implement responsible taxes and regulations,’ but small businesses will be prioritized over large alcohol and tobacco companies, which the senator from New York does not want to monopolize the cannabis industry.”
