Chuck Schumer is pandering to people who support the decriminalization of Marijuana. He suddenly claims to believe in states’ rights. Where was this Chuck Schumer when Democrats stuffed Obamacare down the nation’s throat?
Chuck Schumer Backs Effort to Decriminalize Marijuana: My Position ‘Has Evolved’
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is ready to introduce legislation to decriminalize marijuana.
Schumer said in a statement released Friday:
The time has come to decriminalize marijuana. My thinking – as well as the general population’s views – on the issue has evolved, and so I believe there’s no better time than the present to get this done. It’s simply the right thing to do. This legislation would let the states be the laboratories that they should be, ensure that woman and minority-owned business have a fair shot in the marijuana industry, invests in critical research on THC, and ensures that advertisers can’t target children – it’s a balanced approach.
Schumer outlined that his legislation would remove marijuana from the list of scheduled substances under the U.S. Controlled Substances Act of 1970. The leading Senate Democrat also suggested that his bill would also respect states’ rights to prevent the federal government from cracking down on states that have legalized marijuana.
None of this is genuine. It’s a political ploy to gain votes.
