Sen. Bernie Sanders is happy that legal marijuana sales are coming to his home state.
“Let me congratulate the state legislature for making Vermont the 11th state in the country to legalize marijuana and also for expunging past marijuana convictions,” the former Democratic presidential candidate posted on Twitter on Friday.
Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (R) announced this week that he would allow a bill to legalize cannabis sales to become law without his signature, while he signed separate legislation to facilitate the expungement of past marijuana convictions.
“Now, it is time for Congress and the federal government to end the war on drugs and legalize marijuana nationwide,” Sanders added in his tweet.
