Cory Booker and his rivals of 2020 return to the pot of legalization


Senator Cory Booker presented Thursday a bill that would legalize marijuana nationwide.

Entitled the Marijuana Justice Act, the bill is co-sponsored by other Democratic presidential nominees for the 2020 presidency, including Elizabeth Elizabeth Sense, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand.

"The war on drugs has not been a war on drugs, it is a war against the people, and disproportionately people of color and low-income people,"Booker said in a press release. "The Marijuana Justice Act seeks to reverse decades of this unjust, unfair and unsuccessful policy by removing marijuana from the list of controlled substances and legalizing it at the federal level."
