Comments

Warren first said she supports medical marijuana in Fall 2012, shortly after her father died of cancer. “If there’s something a physician can prescribe that can help someone who’s suffering, I’m in favor of that,” she told Boston’s WTKK-FM. “It should be like any other prescription drug. That there’s careful control over it.” In September 2015, Warren said “I’m open to it,” when asked about a legalization initiative that may appear on her home state of Massachusetts’s ballot next year…on Wednesday, Warren told the Boston Globe that “we’ve learned more. A couple of states have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Frankly, I think we ought to be learning what we can from those states.” “A kid gets caught with a few ounces of pot and goes to jail, but a big bank launders drug money and no one gets arrested,” she said at the liberal Netroots Nation conference last year. “The game is rigged!” In Wednesday’s interview, Warren criticized the way scientific inquiry on marijuana has been stymied and stigmatized. “It’s just kind of a crazy thing, this country, for so long has done this like, ‘Marijuana, you know, no!’ We can’t even do scientific research around it. And so I’ve been pushing to say we ought to explore it and see what the consequences of marijuana use are.

In a letter signed by six other U.S. senators, Warren and Markey prodded federal agencies including the Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, and the Drug Enforcement Administration to become more involved and supportive of research around medical marijuana, and reduce some of the barriers to conducting that research.
