A Sara Jacobs (D - CA) DECRIMINALIZE

Her website says: It’s time for the federal government to de-criminalize cannabis. And we need to make sure that tax money derived from legal cannabis sales go back to rebuilding communities that have been devastated by the drug wars, and that we pardon all those who are in the criminal justice system due to non-violent marijuana-related offenses that would now be considered legal. https://sarajacobsforca.com/criminal-justice-reform

Holds office U.S. House District 53

Comments

"It’s past time we decriminalized weed + expunged nonviolent marijuana convictions so that the communities destroyed by the failed War on Drugs may finally begin to heal. That's why I proudly voted YES on the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment + Expungement Act." 4/1/22
