image for Bernie Sanders Just Invited 15,000 People To A Marijuana Legalization Ceremony

At a rally in Chicago on Saturday, the 2020 Democratic candidate reiterated his legalization promise, stating that “there are some things that a president can do with executive order.”.

“It just so happens that with an executive order, a president can make marijuana legal in every state in this country,” Sanders said, earning intense applause.

He joked that he might hold the signing ceremony in Grant Park, where the rally was being held.

“Let me ask you all a question: how many folks here know somebody who was arrested for possession of marijuana?”

“We’re going to move to expunge the records of those arrested for marijuana.”.

Bernie Sanders feeling good and tells a crowd of 15,000 that he can legalize marijuana nationwide, and maybe he should sign that executive order in Chicago.

In any case, the rhetoric demonstrates one thing clearly to voters: Sanders is a pro-legalization candidate and would work to enact comprehensive reform. »
