Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 08, 2019

In 2016, legalizing marijuana was a niche issue. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders mentioned it occasionally, while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton supported the lesser step of removing pot from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act.

"He now says he favors decriminalization, which would reduce enforcement of marijuana laws but keep it technically illegal"

What a ridiculous goober

"Sanders was the first candidate to introduce marijuana legalization into his regular stump speech in 2016"

Give him time, and pressure from the Left, and he'll flip flop on that too. Such a man of integrity.

Start the clock on Flipper Joe. He'll be touting cannabis as a medication for asthma before long.

Class 1 is beyond ridiculous. It is a mean and vicious path to prison if you are poor. If you have money it's no big deal. Just ask Willy.

Legalizing pot is probably a generational thing, like legalizing interracial marriage.

Biden is progressing. Nulli is regressing.

Were you looking at your own clothes when you came up with that description? It's a bit too exact to be random.

What's your cult leader's stance on marijuana again?

My cult leader is Bernie, and he wants to legalize it.

Your cult leader is trump. You repeat his talking points far more than you repeat bernie's talking points.

No bernie supporter thinks the mueller investigation exonerated trump like you do.

You're a simple minded idiot...the very demographic that CNN targets.

You, the media, and Democratic Party leaders have squandered opportunity after opportunity

to change the world. Case in point: 2+ years screaming about Trump, instead of leading a cause and movement.

You're just a bunch of screamers.

So people who are screaming about trump are bad, and people who repeat trump's talking point are good. But yeah you're not a trump supporter... sure.

Is he attempting to throw Trump the presidency? Is does seem that way on more instances recently.. or, perhaps progressive achievements will influence his lust for power again?

At this time he is taking votes from the legitimate candidates knowingly because Joe Biden is a Republican enabler.

Lock ‘em up.

Only losers who don't give a ---- about their kids, their parents and their neighbors smoke pot.

Pathetic.

Nope.

We ALL KNOW at least one pothead who has effed up their entire life because of pot.

We are living the Afroman song in parts of this nation.

"We ALL KNOW at least one pothead who has effed up their entire life because of pot."

How does that compare to drink, meth, cocaine, or opioids?

My observation suggests all are considerably worse.

Pot.

And that starts with P and that rhymes with T and that stands for Trouble!

One thing I find disreputable about Elizabeth Warren is her stance on marijuana. Why would anyone without first hand experience be allowed or trusted to make an informed decision on anything regarding marijuana?!

If Biden thinks his time as Obama's VP was going to shelter him from close scrutiny, he's got another think coming. His support in the Black community will wane to once his record as a senator becomes more widely reported.

His entire campaign is based on having the lingering scent of obama on him.
