In The Fresh Toast, Mike Adams argues that Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) doesn’t have the votes to legalize federally:
“The U.S. Senate is now split 50-50 with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker. All that was left to do is draft a weed bill, and Americans would live happily ever after. Well, five months ago, Schumer and two other Senators came forward to proclaim how cannabis reform was going to be a priority in the upper chamber. Since then, the nation hasn’t witnessed any action. The main reason, presumably, is because Senator Schumer knows that trying to pass a cannabis reform bill right now will end in failure.”
Meanwhile, to commemorate 50 years since President Richard Nixon declared the war on drugs, two House Democrats introduced a bill to decriminalize all drugs.
