Schumer Calls For Decriminalization Of Marijuana

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says it is time to decriminalize marijuana.  In a statement today, the New York Democrat vowed to soon introduce legislation that would remove pot from the federal controlled substances list.  He called it the right thing to do.  Schumer noted that, like a lot of folks, his thinking on marijuana has "evolved."  A number of states have moved to loosen restrictions or legalize marijuana.  It is still against the law in the eyes of the federal government.
