Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders re-affirmed his pro-marijuana legalization stance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, but that does not imply he’ll decriminalize all drugs.
Possibly the most revelatory statement Sen. Bernie Sanders stated on Joe Rogan’s podcast was his strategy to reveal UFO and alien secrets should he develop into President. Going a single step additional, Sanders told Rogan “we’ll announce it on the show.” As in, Rogan’s show. Discovering that aliens exist by way of a comedian’s podcast would be the most 2020 point ever.
But the conversation at some point turned to a single of Rogan’s favored subjects — cannabis. Rogan brought up the flourishing black marketplace in states like California. Although consumers favor regulated, legally grown cannabis, the majority of customers reside in states with no legalized cannabis. As a outcome, they obtain unregulated, pesticide-filled bud, which at times contains traces of feces.

“What I named for then and I contact for now is the legalization of marijuana in America,” Sanders stated. “Right now you have a federal law — it is named the Controlled Substance Act. Here’s heroin, here’s marijuana — they’re at the very same level. That is insane.
“Heroin is a killer drug,” he continued. You can argue the pluses and minuses of marijuana, but marijuana ain’t heroin. So we have to finish that. That is what I will do. As President of the United States, I think we can do that by way of executive order. And I will do that.”
