Sen. Elizabeth Warren released a new plan for sweeping cannabis reform and legalization on Sunday. In her “Justice and Equitable Cannabis Industry” plan, the Massachusetts senator calls for major federal cannabis reform with a focus on correcting systemic wrongs, especially in communities of color, policing, and convictions. “It’s about undoing a century of racist policy that disproportionately targeted Black and Latinx communities,” she states in her plan. Before we get into the details of Warren’s plan, here’s a quick review of where the remaining Democratic presidential contenders stand on cannabis. Sen. Amy Klobuchar; former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana Pete Buttigieg; and Tom Steyer all support federal legalization. Former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, however, are notably less progressive on legalization. Sen. Bernie Sanders has the most wide-reaching, progressive proposal for cannabis reform and legalization so far.
