Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer strongly supports the legalization of marijuana and is ready to move forward with his position, even if President Biden isn’t.
“When a few of the early states – Oregon and Colorado – wanted to legalize, all the opponents talked about the parade of horribles: Crime would go up. Drug use would go up. Everything bad would happen,” Schumer said. “The parade of horribles never came about, and people got more freedom. And people in those states seem very happy.”
Schumer introduced a legalization bill in 2018 but has yet to see it be passed. He has continued to hit roadblocks with Biden’s conservative approach to marijuana legalization, stating that more research is needed of its safety.
“President Biden needs to join Schumer and the American people on the right side of history and, if he will not join them in calling for a correction to this long-running injustice, Congress should force his hand by putting legislation to end our failed prohibition on his desk as soon as possible,” Erik Altieri, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws said.
