"As I've said before, especially in regards to medical marijuana, the federal government has no business sending in the FBI and Department of Justice to prosecute people in full compliance with their own state's law... I'll keep working with Republicans and Democrats in the House to make sure Minnesota's laws are respected."
Do you support changing the law to release non-violent drug offenders currently serving federal prison terms?
I have been a strong advocate for criminal justice reform and joined my colleague Bobby Scott in introducing the SAFE Justice Act. This bill ensures that we target higher level drug traffickers instead of low level drug offenders who may be facing addiction issues. The bill also provides previously sentenced defendants whose imprisonment would be reduced by the bill to petition the court for sentence reduction. So, yes, my bill does just that.
