Cannabis News: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Issued A Statement To President Biden
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes issued a statement to President Biden related to cannabis and more, citing his near-year reign and total inaction. Her twitter account on Monday read:
“When we suggested this months ago, people were outraged, accused us of insulting people’s character, called us disruptive, etc. Capitol Hill is full of folks who convince themselves they’re 3 steps ahead by rationalizing to themselves why the obvious isn’t true. A hustler’s dream.”
She went on to say,
“Biden needs to lean on his executive authority now. He has been delaying and underutilizing it so far. There is an enormous amount he can do on climate, student debt, immigration, cannabis, health care, and more. Time is running out—we need to move and use alternative paths.”
In February, she was one of the first to recommend that Biden utilize executive authority to push marijuana legalization, signing a letter to the president with 36 of her colleagues.
