Booker Blasts Biden On Legal Weed: Were You High?

The New Jersey Advance reports:

It was a debate moment to remember for Cory Booker. Not so much for Joe Biden. With barely 15 minutes left in the two-plus hour Democratic presidential debate, the New Jersey senator brought the house down by saying he was incredulous the former vice president opposed legalizing marijuana.

“I thought you might have been high when you said it,” Booker said to Biden. Booker has introduced legislation to remove the federal ban on cannabis, leaving it to the states to decide whether to allow the drug for medicinal or recreational use.

Biden has called for decriminalizing cannabis, but he still wants federal restrictions on its use even as he, like Booker, would expunge previous convictions for using marijuana.
