Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer 4/20 Plans Involve Marijuana

Chuck Schumer will introduce a bill Friday—which is, appropriately, 4/20—to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, the Senate minority leader tells VICE News in an interview set to air in full on HBO Thursday night. “I’ve seen too many people’s lives ruined because they had small amounts of marijuana and served time in jail, much too long.
