Bernie Sanders shared his support for the legal marijuana movement Wednesday, according to The Washington Post

If elected, he hopes to remove marijuana from the federal list of dangerous drugs.


“Too many Americans have seen their lives destroyed because they have criminal records as a result of marijuana use,” Sanders said in his prepared speech. “That’s wrong. That has got to change.”
