Comments

"Black, Latino, and Indigenous people have carried the brunt of marijuana criminalization for too long. Today, I'm proud to vote in favor of the #MOREAct to decriminalize marijuana, reform our outdated cannabis laws, and begin to repair the harm of discriminatory drug policy." (04/01/22)

"This critical bill rights the wrongs of the failed and racist War on Drugs by expunging federal marijuana convictions, reinvesting in communities of color, and promoting equitable participation in the legal marijuana industry. #WeWantMORE" (12/04/20)

"Our federal cannabis policies have been rooted in the past for far too long. As states continue to modernize how we regulate cannabis, the @HouseJudiciary Committee is taking steps to ensure that our policies are fair, equitable, and inclusive." (11/22/19)
