When it comes to marijuana policy, Bernie Sanders is the clear favorite out of all of the candidates trying to become the next President of the United States. Whereas the other candidates may respect states’ rights at best (depending on if you believe what they say), Bernie Sanders has introduced legislation to completely end federal marijuana prohibition altogether.
“It is not acceptable that many young people have criminal records for smoking marijuana, while the CEOs of banks whose illegal behavior helped destroy our economy do not.” -Bernie Sanders
Bernie has introduced legislation in the Senate to federally decriminalize marijuana by taking it out of the Controlled Substance act altogether. This would also put an end to the failed war on drugs, which for many years has disproportionately targeted minorities and low-income communities. No other presidential candidate is willing to do the same.
