In tonight’s debate, Sanders was asked if he would vote to legalize marijuana in the state of Nevada in 2016.
“I suspect I would vote yes,” Sanders said. “I am seeing in this country too many lives being destroyed for nonviolent offenses.” Then he added the United States needs to “rethink this war on drugs.”
Kevin Sabet tweeted:
Not letting @BernieSanders off the hook on the marijuana issue.It’s well known he isn’t a marijuana enthusiast;we’ll get to the bottom of it
which prompted Tom Angell to retort:
LOL. Now Sanders is officially on notice that a losing movement with no political support is coming after him. #oooh https://t.co/2a6xgggYXf
