Call your Senator and Congress (202)225-3121, and tell them you support the ‘‘Marijuana Justice Act of 2017."

"A BILL
To amend the Controlled Substances Act to provide for a
new rule regarding the application of the Act to mari-
huana, and for other purposes. "

Senator Cory Booker presented this bill on Tuesday, August 1st via Facebook live. Here is some of what the senator had to say.

"For decades, the failed War on Drugs has locked up millions of nonviolent drug offenders—especially for marijuana-related offenses—at an incredible cost of lost human potential, torn apart families and communities, and taxpayer dollars. The effects of the drug war have had a disproportionately devastating impact on Americans of color and the poor. 

"Today I’m introducing the Marijuana Justice Act, a bill that if passed will legalize marijuana at the federal level and go even further in an effort to remedy many of the failures of the War on Drugs. This is the right thing to do for public safety, and will help reduce our overflowing prison population. "Watch below as I outline the provisions of the bill in detail. I’ll also answer many of your questions - please leave them in the comments."
