Comments

"I just voted to end federal criminalization of marijuana, and allow expungement of many convictions. For too long, prosecution of minor marijuana offenses led to disproportionate incarceration of Black and brown communities. Decriminalization makes our justice system more fair." 12/4/20

"As more states, including California, legalize and regulate marijuana, both for medicinal and recreational use, turning back the clock on federal enforcement is a waste of limited resources. I believe the hands-off policy should be reinstated, by Congressional action if necessary" [in response to recindance of Cole Memo]
With a nationwide opioid epidemic and innumerable other priorities, busting legal marijuana sellers and medicinal dispensaries is wasteful and destructive. Whatever happened to their states' rights creed? [in response to recindance of Cole Memo]

"California Rep. Adam Schiff Slams Jeff Sessions' Crackdown on Legalized Pot
Rep. Adam Schiff says it's surprising Jeff Sessions nixed Obama-era rules letting states deal with legal marijuana on their own terms ... because the Trump team claims to be all about states' rights."
