Eight states and the District of Columbia have already legalized marijuana. Even more states are taking up measures to follow suit. Yet the federal government continues to drag its feet and continues to go backward, not forward on drug policy. It’s time to catch up to the progress made by state legislatures and end these broken drug laws once and for all. That’s why I've introduced the Marijuana Justice Act. It won’t be easy, but as Frederick Douglass once said, “power concedes nothing without a demand.” I hope you will join me in support of this bill. #MarijuanaJustice

Sen. Cory Booker Will Face An Uphill Battle Fixing America’s “Badly Broken” Drug Laws

The Democratic senator called the bill “a necessary step in correcting this unjust system,” but even legalization advocates say that it’s unlikely to succeed.

Anthony Tedesco Thank you Senator It's about time someone said the Obvious
Jack Tors Unfortunate that goons like Sessions will fight against this tooth and nail, just based on the fact that it's your idea, but people with a brain support you 100% Senator Booker.

In the United States today, black people are almost four times more likely than their white counterparts to be arrested for marijuana use or possession. This practice of over-criminalizing and under-serving our communities, grounded in the misguided War on Drugs prevents hardworking people from getting Pell Grants, getting jobs, and having access to basic necessities like food stamps. Just because of one reckless decision, countless people caught in this unjust system have a less viable long-term economic potential. That’s not what we’re about. #MarijuanaJustice

Maureen McGinnis What about changing the system that discriminates? That seems like a better plan than putting a bandaid on it by legalizing marijuana.
Charles Oberholtzer Still playing the race card while you hold the blacks back by telling them they don't have to work. Until the leaders of the black community show by example how to get ahead by getting (1) high school education-minimum, go to trade school- take these ...
Carol Good The prison industrial complex disproportionately affect the poor and people of color. The money would be better spent investing in our communities for schools and food programs for kids so that they can be successful.
Donnay Noir its ridiculous that marijuana is considered more dangerous than meth?! Are we legislating for what communities use which drug to lessen the effects in white communities and make them harsher in communities of color?! This is blatant and outrageous ...

Ending the prohibition on marijuana is a matter of equal justice. The War on Drugs has disproportionately targeted minority communities and low-income individuals. It has hurt too many American communities, neighborhoods, families and lives. That's why I introduced the Marijuana Justice Act to legalize marijuana on the federal level. Please watch & share. #MarijuanaJustice

In this country, we have allowed 40 years of bad drug policy to overpopulate our prisons and disproportionately harm people of color, the poor, and the mentally ill. I’ve introduced a bill that will: ✔️ Deschedule marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug ✔️ Expunge the record of people with marijuana possession or use ✔️ Resentence people currently serving time for marijuana-related offenses ✔️ Incentivize states to chart a path toward legalization at the state level ✔️ Establish community reinvestment programs in areas most hard-hit by the drug war We can’t perpetuate this broken system any longer. We must be agents of restorative justice. #MarijuanaJustice
