Now Senator Schumer needs all Democratic Members to vote in favor of ending the senate rule against marijuana. He needs their support to legalize weed, and since the marijuana bill will require Republican approval, he will need at least ten votes. Both political sides are unable to cooperate on this process which means once again, politicians are taking the marijuana industry backward. Ironically, these same politicians are from states that have legalized cannabis. They have accepted that their states are moving into the future where marijuana will matter more and are left behind.
