Senator Cory Booker is a strong advocate for ending the prohibition of cannabis in the United States. In 2017 Booker Sponsored a federal bill that would allow for legal cannabis. In December, the bill gained a co-sponsor, Senator Rob Wyden of Oregon, whose state also legalized recreational cannabis with voter approval in 2016.

Booker came out swinging against Session’s decision on January 4, to rescind the Cole memo and send the cannabis industry into a state of confusion and without direction. Booker said the “failed War On Drugs is unjust and does not make us safer.”

Booker was recently appointed to the Senate Judiciary Committee and it is expected he will continue to fight for the end of cannabis prohibition.
