Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer declares that congress will push forward with federal cannabis legalization despite a very hesitant President Biden
He was quoted saying,
“I am personally for legalization. And the bill that we’ll be introducing is headed in that direction,”
According to Press Secretary Psaki, Biden is currently a proponent of decriminalization, but he has not expanded his stance on a broader scale that would include legalization.
Schumer is hopeful that the President’s current opinion will evolve with proper education.
After all, Schumer was initially opposed to cannabis legalization until he paid a visit to Denver and spoke with locals about how legalization has helped the state of Colorado.
Schumer stated, “I want to make my arguments to him (Biden)… But at some point, we’re going to move forward.”
