Bernie Sanders Says He Would Use Executive Order To Legalize Cannabis

The presidential hopeful called the Controlled Substances Act “insane”

In an interview on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) said he would legalize cannabis nationwide via executive order, according to a report by Leafly.

“What I call for now is the legalization of marijuana in America. I believe we can do that through executive order, and I will do that.” – Sanders, on the Joe Rogan Experience

In the crowded Democratic candidate field, the majority support federal cannabis legalization; however, Sanders is the only candidate to indicate he would use an executive order to enact the reforms.

During the interview, Sanders called expunging low-level cannabis crime records “the right thing to do” and described the Controlled Substances Act as “insane.”
