Marijuana prohibition has been around for more than 80 years, but if last week’s series of events are any indicator, this era may finally be coming to an end. The unlikely duo of Senators, who rarely agree on anything, were lockstep on one factor: Prohibition has failed and it is time to change the law. “Outdated federal marijuana laws have perpetuated our broken criminal justice system, created barriers to research, and hindered economic development,” Warren said. Gardner also had something to say on the issue,  “The bipartisan, commonsense bill ensures the federal government will respect the will of the voters — whether that is legalization or prohibition – and not interfere in any states’ legal marijuana industry.” This reaffirmation came off the heels of a commitment by the president made to Sen. Gardner that he would support a federalist approach to state marijuana laws back in April. Bipartisan lawmakers agree — marijuana prohibition has failed and it’s time to change the law
