Bernie Sanders policy director unveils new plan to legalize marijuana

Bernie 2020 National Policy Director Josh Orton breaks down the campaign’s marijuana legalization plan. About Rising: Rising is a weekday morning show with …


  1. Saagar you are a total dumb ass when it comes to herb & you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. You probably get paralyzed & freak out on weed, which makes you the last person who should be weighing in.

  2. Studies have actually show that teen use doesn't rise with marijuana decriminalization. Also it's widely known that any substance can harm a pregnancy and mother's shouldn't use anything while pregnant. Where does this guy get his information?

  3. And all respect I had for Saagar as a sensible voice on the right evaporates. Marijuana use is linked to schizophrenia? What a silly silly man. That is so stupid and frustrating I can’t even find words.

    Elizabeth Warren is a Corporatist Liar!!!
    Long Live the Hand That Wields Oathkeeper!!!
    Corporate Socialism Sucks!!!
    We are all children of the subjugated!!!

  4. Strike it from the books, is the best way to go, says a friend of mine's brother. Makes most sense considering reregulating from square 1 is clear and not confusing, making an opportunity to mess with it in legislative process

  5. It would be so great for senior citizens, and eventually everyone, if Medicare covered cannabis based medications. It would reduce, possibly eliminate, the use of opiates, antidepressants, anti-anxiety, etc. That said, big pharma will wage the war of wars to keep that from happening.

  6. Saagar sounds downright insane concerning marijuana. I mean, just when I start to have a modicum of respect for the guy, he goes off on this nonsensical rant against weed. Not a word he uttered was based in empirical fact.

  7. I'm totally ok with Saagar's POV. We know he's republican, and what's so great about this show is that we get to see issues talked about by people with differing views, without mud slinging! They're having proper discussions and you can see that they usually agree on diagnosing a problem or dissecting an issue, but not always on how to solve it etc… We should all get off our high horses, and instead of bashing those who don't see things as we do, have discussions as to you why we see things differently…maybe we'll find we have more in common than we realize…

  8. Marijuana dispensaries have saved several small towns here in CO. Also the numbers show that DUI/DWI's haven't increased like the critics were arguing. Plus opiate issues have decreased here because Marijuana is a natural pain killer; my own doctor told me to get edible marijuana products after neck surgery. Now CO wants to legalize on-line gambling and shrooms to make extra tax money. Better to have honest shop owners sell marijuana and shrooms, then let dealers do it. Saagar needs to look at states that have legalized, all the arguments have been proven wrong. #Bernie2020
