New York Senator kirsten gillibrand has a one question survey on her website. The question is “Should we decriminalize marijuana?” It’s a growing movement a smart way for progressive candidates to raise money when campaigning. There is a growing trend in the Senate that feel it’s a good way to lower the costs of incarceration as well as offer social justice because a majority of those in jail for cannabis are minority or poor.
Anyway please vote. Let the Senator know how you feel.
Senators Cory Gardner of Colorado and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have released a bipartisan bill. Interesting that the republican sponsor is from the first state to legalize. The bill focuses on states rights and allows states to set their own policy, regardless of if the law is criminal federally. This would only apply to Marijuana law and not set a new precedent.
