Our marijuana laws have devastated communities…wrought poverty, caused crime, driven violence. It's wasted government investment in a way where we should have been reaping investment.feedback

Aug 03 2017

I really don't care. The injustice here is so great I don't care what kind of hit it takes on me politically. This is something that's time has come – it came, actually, a while ago. And now we have evidence in the states that have already legalized.feedback

Aug 03 2017 - Human Rights

You can't have freedom and justice in this country if you can't breathe your air, if you can't open your window because of the toxic smells. It may not be a billy club that is hitting you or a dog that is tearing your skin – those images from the Civil Rights movement – but it is violence to the body.feedback

Aug 02 2017 - Marijuana

I've seen a lot of very compelling preliminary data that shows there is a drop in opioid overdoses in areas that have better access to marijuana.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Marijuana

They're actually seeing positive things coming out of that experience. Now I believe the federal government should get out of the illegal marijuana business.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Obamacare

It's about time that we start working together, as opposed to the process we've seen right now, which has been a betrayal of Senate tradition. There's a lot of good will and we can work together, but this process was just outrageous from the beginning – with no outside support, without outside experts and, no doubt, any kind of bipartisan input.feedback

Jul 26 2017

I've never seen or read in the entire history of the United States anything as rushed as this that has such an impact on Americans.feedback

Jul 17 2017

It's the most vulnerable people that our prison system preys upon. The people that need help, that need counseling, that need trauma care, that need healing, are the ones that we prey upon. That's the crisis that we're in right now, that you're put into a system that re-traumatizes you. Why are we putting pregnant women in solitary confinement? Shackling them?feedback

Jul 17 2017

The common-sense things in this bill help to create a safer community, help to empower folks. This is about the dignity of our society, the dignity of women.feedback

Instead, they will worsen an already broken system.feedback

Jul 12 2017

Jun 29 2017

Jun 28 2017

This is one of the most cruel self-inflicted wounds the country has ever done – while the rest of nations are using infrastructure dollars to build new high-speed rails, build new ports, build new roads and bridges. America's infrastructure crumpled in every way except for the astonishing investments we made in building prisons – with a new prison being built every ten days between 1990 and 2005.feedback

Jun 28 2017

I mean the challenge with our attorney general is he may have an opinion but it's not based on facts. It's not based on data. It's not based on the truth. The reality is state after state after state have demonstrated that they can lower their prison populations using innovative ideas. And lower their crime rate at the same time. So his sort of draconian, retribution- and punishment-focused criminal justice – outdated opinions – really fly in the face of experience. Really fly in the face of data. Really fly in the face where both the left and the right are moving in this country.feedback

Jun 28 2017

The federal government gave billions and billions of dollars worth of incentives to massively expand the population on state levels – bribing the states to instigate hyper-incarceration, mass-incarceration. And now this is in many ways saying, Hey, we're going to give you a similar amount of resources and incentives to undo this morally corrosive and shameful mass incarceration in our country.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Marijuana

Marijuana laws in America are broken. So it's time that we reverse that, on the right, on the left, Christian and evangelical, fiscal conservatives, libertarians, liberals, moderates, people from every background now realize that these policies were wrong and misguided, and morally bankrupt. And we as a country, we need to with the same kind of enthusiasm, work to reverse these policies as we did when we implemented them.feedback

Jun 22 2017

Again, this makes no sense in science, makes no sense in compassion, makes no sense in terms of law, it makes no sense frankly in terms of economics. This is a very, very unjust law. And it shouldn't be allowed to stand, that's why we're pushing this.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Marijuana

I served with Senator Sessions. He never hid his belief that he wanted to make sure marijuana stayed illegal, even in medical cases. In his letter he misrepresents the facts by talking about this being a historical moment of crisis in terms of marijuana. Almost like he's confusing the opioid crisis, which actually medical marijuana is one way to alleviate that crisis. So we have someone who is demonstrating ignorance of the facts, no compassion when it comes to families that are suffering.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Marijuana

The fact is our marijuana laws in America are broken. They are savagely broken, and the jagged pieces are hurting American people. I dare him to sit down with families and listen to their stories and then pursue a policy like he's advocating for now.feedback

May 30 2017

During the Sessions confirmation hearing, Franken was a hero to me. He's like a bloodhound. Once he's got a scent, he's going to keep coming and coming and coming.feedback

May 28 2017 - Russia

He needs to answer for what was happening at the time. What's worrying me are the patterns we're seeing. So one is this administration not talking about our values, cozying up to authoritarian leaders. And the other pattern we have is just a continuous drumbeat of inappropriate contacts with the Russians.feedback

May 10 2017

Now it's even more important that an independent special counsel is appointed to investigate the Russian interference in our elections.feedback

May 09 2017 - Watergate

The president of the United States just fired the person who was investigating his campaign, which should set off alarm bells across the country.feedback

Jan 11 2017 - Human Rights

If one is to be attorney general, they must be willing to continue the hallowed tradition in our country of fighting for justice for all, for equal justice for civil rights.feedback

Jul 15 2016

This is going to be a long, hot summer for people who aren't going to be able to take nice long vacations, people who are in our streets fearing for our children, people wondering why Congress has failed.feedback

Jul 15 2016

In the jewelry store, they lock the case when I walk in. In the shoe store, they help the white man who walks in after me.feedback
