Happy 4/20!

Democrats, Republicans reach deal to reopen federal government | ABC News Special Report

From Chuck Schumer:

In an exclusive interview with VICE News, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) confirmed he is putting his name on legislation that he said is aimed at “decriminalizing” marijuana at the federal level.

For Schumer, this is a shift. While he has backed medical marijuana and the rights of states to experiment with legal sales of pot, what he is proposing is a seismic shift in federal drug policy .

“Ultimately, it’s the right thing to do. Freedom. If smoking marijuana doesn’t hurt anybody else, why shouldn’t we allow people to do it and not make it criminal?” Schumer said.

One thought on “Happy 4/20!

  1. Suddenly and without warning Democratic senators are turning away from neo-liberalism and toward Progressivism.

    At least some are.

    Democratic Senators Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.) never miss an opportunity to sound and vote like Republicans.

    On Monday both Heitkamp and Manchin will vote along with the Republicans to make racist, warmonger Mike Pompeo the next Secretary of State.

    They will do that, they say, because historically the President has been allowed the cabinet that he wants and also because they need to vote Republican in order to be re-elected in their very red states.

    Republican Senator Rand Paul (Red State Kentucky) rejects both of those ridiculous excuses and will vote against the unqualified Pompeo.
