Presidential Candidate Says He Used Marijuana and Wants it Legalized

By Michelle Price, Associated Press (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said that he’s used marijuana “a handful of times a long time ago,” and that it’s time for the U.S. to legalize marijuana.

Congress would be pressured to permanently legalize marijuana. His plan also includes expunging previous marijuana convictions. A clemency board would be formed to expunge certain federal convictions and provide some with “early relief.” Marijuana tax revenues would be used to create a $20 billion grant program for persons of color that are discriminated against...
