With the 2020 election coming up and where marijuana is an impact factor in one’s decision concerning a candidate, it can be useful to have a sense of where the candidates stand.

Senator Elizabeth Warren appears to favor legalization of cannabis.

At a CNN town hall meeting, she stated after sharing insight on criminal justice,

“I supported Massachusetts changing its laws on marijuana and I now support the legalization of marijuana [in the United States].”

She has also shared her position on social media, stating,

“It’s time to legalize marijuana, and stand against an unjust criminal justice system. I’m proud to co-sponsor the Marijuana Justice Act.”

Her position appears to stem from a desire to fix an unjust criminal justice system. Her support has been strong throughout 2018. That year, she penned a letter to President Trump, requesting the he reinstate the Cole Memo. She also co-sponsored a bi-partisan bill called the STATES Act. If passed, this bill would amend the Controlled Substances act to allow states to “implement their own marijuana laws without federal interference.”

So far, it seems her position is positive for those who are hoping for marijuana legalization.
