We must also repair the damage caused by reinvesting in those communities that have been most harmed by the War on Drugs. And we must expunge the records of those who have served their time.

Such law would inhibit police action against violations involving other drugs and make other drug related crimes more difficult to prosecute. More addicts would also be getting into lines of work that they were previously barred from. It's likely that even more calls for police assistance would result in no-shows.

Should be easy enough for the GOP to pre-empt them by introducing a straight forward bill allowing the states to opt out of federal laws. Forget about their reparations.

Reminds me of running for “office” in the 6th grade. I promised candy served at lunch, no school on Friday’s and no detention ever. Of course, I won the election and spent the following days reneging on my promises.

“...Why a federal law?...”

As much power and control as they can grab. These crazies are communists/totalitarians and they suck up the votes at the same time. Government power madness.

“Why a federal law?”

It’s currently against federal law.

Trump gave blacks jobs and the democrat street peddlers are trying to lure them back with reefer. There is zero altruistic content to Booker’s intentions.

Cory’s speech originally began: “To be blunt.....” and they had him delete that. “It is high time this joint effort of Congress...” Then a rewrite.
“Oh, just pass the bill. Good night.”

Funny that campy movie Reefer Madness and campaigns like that claimed that someday we would have people not motivated to get a job (now a symptom of “daily marijuana smoker” —an official category),people doped up and driving,increases in rape,sudden impulse violence,breakdown of society,people withdrawing from others,and big increases in dangerous drug use.
Exactly like today and getting worse.

Exactly.

Should be a slam-dunk for any state’s rights conservative.

Nothing in the Constitution gives the feds any say whatsoever.

In spite of legalizing weed all over the country, it remains a gateway drug (along with beer and tobacco)

The frontal lobe of the brain is not fully grown until age 25, but pot impairs this growth.

I quit smoking weed years before I quit drinking 25 years ago.

Sobriety is my most valuable possession.

If God had wanted our minds altered, he would have just done so.
