Bernie Sanders Has A Plan That Could Revolutionize Nation’s Marijuana Industry Beyond Just Legalization

Im tired of seeing lives destroyed. @BernieSanders #BernieinMA Pittsburgh 4 Bernie (@PittsBern) January 2, 2016 While Bernie Sanders is not the only one calling for laws regarding marijuana to be loosened Republican Rand Paul also wants to end the ban on medical marijuana, and Hillary Clinton has hinted toward taking it off the schedule of illegal substances Sanders has staked the most clear and concise stance on the matter. That is why a Bernie Sanders victory could do more for marijuana legalization than any of the steps taken so far. Even in states like Colorado, where the drug is now fully legal and even part of a major tourism push, the marijuana business has yet to fully bloom due to restrictive federal laws.

These banks are afraid of violating federal laws, meaning the businesses are stuck holding onto large amounts of cash and are ripe targets for robbery. Forbes noted that 2016 is shaping up to be the biggest step forward for marijuana nationwide, even bigger than 2015 when four states and the District of Columbia legalized recreational marijuana and several more states decriminalized it. In Congress, there is a bi-partisan bill that would allow states to more easily legalize medical marijuana and re-schedule it as a schedule II drug. This would knock down barriers to researching marijuanas medicinal uses and allow banks to do business with marijuana companies. As the report noted, Bernie Sanders has sponsored a slew of bills that would end marijuana prohibition, make it easier for states to legalize the drug, and give a clean slate for people with marijuana arrests.
