Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Weldon Angelos join Michele and Igor LIVE from Washington D.C. to discuss decriminalizing marijuana. Booker discusses his efforts in Congress to reform outdated federal marijuana policies that predominantly affect people of color, the drastic need for real sentencing reform, and the role activists must play to get this work done. Angelos shares his own experience with harsh marijuana laws—sentenced to 55 years for a first time offense. Booker also shares his initial thoughts on Justice Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court.
