Democratic Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders is under fire after his controversial statement in the Democratic Debate. Sanders vows that when he wins the presidential elections, he will help minority communities to sell legal marijuana. His words were "We're gonna provide help to the African-American, Latino and Native American community to start businesses to sell legal marijuana rather than let a few corporations control the legalized marijuana market."
A post from Townhall also includes Sanders' stance in wanting to change the Federal Controlled Substance Act, claiming it was insane that heroin is said to be equal to marijuana.
This sparked outrage. One tweet criticized Sanders, saying "Bernie Sanders @BernieSanders wants to help POC sell marijuana and other illicit drugs with ease. Not to help them become engineers, doctors or lawyers."sponsor
This is not his only goal. He promised to legalize marijuana in all 50 states and expunge the records of people arrested for marijuana possession.Source: townhall / Last Edited by: Frank
