Joint statement from Senate Majority Leader,
Charles Schumer, Cory Booker & Ron Wyden:
“The War on Drugs has been a war on people – particularly people of color. Ending the federal marijuana prohibition is necessary to right the wrongs of this failed war and end decades of harm inflicted on communities of color across the country,” the statement read. “But that alone is not enough. As states continue to legalize marijuana, we must also enact measures that will lift up people who were unfairly targeted in the War on Drugs.”
Statement form Strekal:
“We look forward to constructively engaging with Congressional leaders, other organizations, and those communities that have historically been most impacted by criminalization in order to ensure that we craft the strongest and most comprehensive bill possible to right the wrongs of the nearly a century of federal cannabis prohibition.”
34 states & 2 territories are currently allowing medical marijuana use. However, 15 states & the U.S. territory of American Samoa do not have any laws that allow marijuana. Marijuana has been classified as a Schedule I drug & is currently legal for recreational use among adults in 15 states.
Statement from CEO, Gerber Kawasaki:
“Cannabis laws are Jim Crow laws that are used to oppress people.”
Would you say “About Time” if your state hasn’t legalized yet?
Is the timing a bit off due to COVID?
Should this bill be considered with everything else going in the world?
