Cory Booker stole the show at the debate on November 20th with his sharp question about Joe Biden calling marijuana a “gateway drug.” CNN has the story and the video:
Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey criticized former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday for his recent comments opposing the legalization of marijuana on the federal level. “I thought you might have been high when you said it,” Booker said, drawing laughs from the crowd at the Democratic presidential debate hosted by MSNBC and The Washington Post.
Cory got more serious as he began talking about the social cost of our drug policy:
Booker said marijuana in America is “already legal for privileged people” and that “the war on drugs has been a war on black and brown people.” He noted that current members of Congress have admitted to smoking marijuana and, in the meantime, “our kids are in jail right now for those drug crimes.”
It’s time for a president who will end the drug war once and for all.
Chip in to help keep Cory in the fight.
