Marijuana will soon be in the hands of the New Jersey voter. For the second time this year, state lawmakers in Trenton killed a bill to legalize recreational marijuana. New Jersey residents will vote on a resolution to legalize pot next November. New Jersey Republican Senator Declan O'Scanlon has stated he was against any form of legalization until voters were able to vote in favor. Sen. O'Scanlon joined Cheddar to discuss. Former Vice President and 2020 presidential hopeful, Joe Biden, made headlines for his stance on marijuana. At a town hall in Las Vega, Biden said there isn't enough evidence as to whether or not marijuana is a gateway drug, therefore, he will not legalize it on a federal level until more research is provided. John Hudak, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution, joined Cheddar to discuss. There's a catch-22 at work in the legal cannabis industry: People who live in federally subsidized housing can't use cannabis at home. It doesn't matter if it's legal in their state, it doesn't matter if they're registered medical cannabis patient. If a public housing resident uses cannabis, they risk serious consequences, like eviction. Edie Moore, the Executive Director of Chicago NORML, joined Cheddar to discuss what this means for Chicago residents living in public housing when recreational pot is legalized January 1st.
