The New Jersey senator introduces the Marijuana Justice Act.
Too many lives have been ruined because of the War on Drugs. That’s why I am proud to co-sponsor @corybooker’s legislation to legalize marijuana and expunge the records of those convicted of offenses related to marijuana use and possession.

600,000 people, disproportionately people of color, were arrested for possession of marijuana in 2017.
It is time to decriminalize marijuana, expunge past marijuana convictions and end the failed war on drugs.

The disparity in who gets arrested for marijuana possession is one sign of how unjustly our drug laws are enforced. It's time to legalize marijuana nationwide and start repairing the harm done to communities of color by the War on Drugs. We need the Marijuana Justice Act. pic.twitter.com/fbaen37m8r
