The Daily Beast reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) announced a new plan on Sunday to battle “Big Tobacco” and reduce federal funding for police in states that do not legalize marijuana if racial disparities in the number of marijuana arrests remain static.
Warren, who has co-sponsored numerous cannabis bills such as the STATES Act and the Marijuana Justice Act, proposes regulations that would “preserve market access and competition.”
She would also reportedly tap people who support marijuana legalization to head the Department of Justice, the Food and Drug Administration, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
I’ve got a plan to legalize marijuana, rebuild communities devastated by failed anti-marijuana policies, and ensure that those communities are equally able to participate in the budding cannabis industry. Here’s how we’ll do it. https://t.co/11E2gfCHel
