John Knefel makes the argument that Democrats looking to run for president in 2020 should focus on the legalization of marijuana as part of their platform. Opposing Jeff Sessions’ recent promise to crack down on states that have made moves to legalize or decriminalize marijuana and making moves to dismantle the system of mass incarceration which plagues the U.S. could be a promising pair of positions from which a Democrat could launch a campaign.
Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
