OK, maybe they are a bit less bad than the GOP, but this is truly inexcusable in the era of Black Lives Matter:
It’s 2020 and the leadership of the Democratic Party still cannot get it together on marijuana legalization, which two-thirds of Americans support. . . .
Marijuana Moment reports that on Monday the Democratic National Committee rejected an amendment to put a plank supporting marijuana legalization into the party’s platform. The final vote against, 50-106, is almost a perfect inversion of the two-thirds of the public who want legalization.
This issue is like a thousand times more important than Confederate statues.
On the state and local level, marijuana offenses still account for 40 percent of drug-related arrests. And the vast majority of those arrests (more than 90 percent) are for possession, not manufacture or sale.
Biden stands with the 32% of Americans with especially stupid and mean-spirited views.
What a disgrace. Let’s see how progressives react to this news. Can delegates vote to overrule the Platform Committee? Would they even wish to?
