Booker’s Big Fight: Federal Pot Legalization & Social Justice Reform on Horizon
It was bright and hot in Linden, when Senator Cory Booker returned to New Jersey on Friday. Earlier last week in the nation’s capital, the senator proposed an ambitious plan to legalize marijuana nationally that was a direct challenge to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has confirmed his intention to crack down on weed.
Booker interrupted his annual “Jersey Summer Road Trip” for a kick-ass, kick-off press conference on the steps of Linden City Hall.
He was joined by New Jersey State Senator Nick Scutari, who earlier this spring introduced his own marijuana legalization bill in the Garden State (currently holding its breath until Chris Christie leaves office). Kindred spirits, Senator Booker said Nick Scutari’s leadership was an inspiration.
“I’m just grateful that he’s willing to stand beside me in the heat, literally and figuratively,” Booker quipped.
Oregon Is About to Become the First State to Decriminalize Hard Drugs
Oregon is an amazing state, and it got even more so last month when its legislature voted to decriminalize cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, oxycodone, LSD and ecstasy.
Oregon already had a weed-friendly history that goes back to 1973, when it became the first state in the union to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana. In 1998, medical marijuana went legal, and in 2015, recreational weed was legalized.
While states across the land have stepped up to legalize or decriminalize medical and/or recreational pot in soaring numbers (29 so far), people get a bit squeamish about doing the same with hard drugs.
Although it is widely reported that when Portugal decriminalized all drugs in 2001 and replaced criminal sanctions with civil penalties and health interventions, drug use did not explode. Indeed, the opposite occurred.
