Cory Booker Intros Bill To Legalize Weed Nationwide

CNBC reports:

Sen. Cory Booker introduced a bill on Thursday to legalize marijuana nationwide as he mounts his presidential campaign.

Co-sponsors of the bill, known as the Marijuana Justice Act, include fellow 2020 contenders Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand. Booker first introduced the bill in 2017, but it was not taken up for a vote.

Currently 10 states and Washington, D.C. have legalized recreational marijuana, and leaders in New York and Booker’s native New Jersey have signaled their intentions to legalize.
