Here’s What Politicians Are Saying About Marijuana Laws On 4/20

Dozens of lawmakers and congressional candidates are calling for marijuana reform on 4/20. While major brands are marketing off the informal cannabis holiday, policymakers and office-seekers are drawing attention to the ongoing harms of prohibition and encouraging policy changes. Here’s what they’re saying: Members of Congress Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT):  It makes no sense for young people to be denied jobs because they were arrested for smoking marijuana.
