The Democratic Party is currently developing its platform for this year’s presidential election.
And many officials came forward to support cannabis legalization as one of the main policy issues.
This would help to resolve racial injustices that stem from the War on Drugs.
The draft platform currently calls to decriminalize and reschedule cannabis, and offer expungement for prior convictions. But ultimately the goal is to allow the states to set their own individual laws around cannabis.
However, an amendment to fully legalize cannabis was voted down and rejected.
The party officially will not endorse full legalization on the national level.

Several dispensaries in the Las Vegas area are being investigated for knowingly carrying products containing the strain Cherry OG F3
This particular strain has continuously failed testing for contamination over the past year for mold, and yeast.

The Houston Young Republicans and Texas NORML called upon Tx Gov. Abbott to legalize cannabis to offset a $4.6 billion budget deficit.
However, Bonnen came forward to say that while theoretically, cannabis legalization and revenue could help, there’s no interest in pursuing it

Heather Fazio, the director of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy noted that in an unprecedented economic downturn, alternatives must be considered.
