    “Medical marijuana reform is not just one-dimensional, we can’t just pick and chose one of these challenges to address,” said the Democratic senator as she talked about the legislation introduced several months ago. “A collaborative approach will solve more problems, help more people, and create a better framework for reform.” Sep 2015

    S. 683: CARERS

    Comments

    "It's a tough issue. We talk about the comparison to alcohol, and obviously alcohol is legal and I'm hardly a prohibitionist, but it does a lot of damage," Schumer said. "The view I have, and I'm a little cautious on this, is let's see how the state experiments work." He added that lawmakers should view states like Colorado and Washington, who have legalized recreational pot, as "laboratories" to see if legalization could work on a larger scale. "I'd be a little cautious here at the federal level, and see the laboratories of the states, see their outcomes before we make a decision," he said. Todd then asked the senator if he believes states should be allowed to legalize marijuana without federal intervention. "Yes," Schumer said. "I think having the states experiment is a good idea." -January 2014 (Link)
