Less than ONE PERCENT of the cannabis industry is owned or operated by people of color. The RESPECT Resolution encourages policy reforms to help communities of color take part in the growing cannabis industry. #MarijuanaJustice

The Marijuana Justice Act would reform drug laws by descheduling marijuana & ensuring that profits from the legal cannabis industry get re-invested into low-income & communities of color that have been devastated by unequal marijuana law enforcement. #MarijuanaJustice

Three bills have been introduced by @RepBarbaraLee to end cannabis prohibition, bar feds from interfering in state cannabis programs and encourage reforms that help communities of color participate in the cannabis industry. We need #MarijuanaJustice

It's now clear -- This Attorney General does not work for us, he works for President Trump. This press conference was a final desperate cry to keep the truth away from the American people. We’re not falling for it. Give us the report.

Quoted @nytimes

Breaking News: White House and Justice Department officials discussed Robert Mueller’s findings several times ahead of his report’s release Thursday https://nyti.ms/2ZhjLqy 

This is outrageous. The AG is supposed to be an independent beacon of truth and justice. Instead, Barr is debasing the rule of law, degrading our democratic institutions, and decimating any trust the American people have left in this Administration. #ReleaseTheReport

Embarrassingly obvious -- The purpose of Attorney General Barr's press conference two hours before giving the Mueller report to Congress is to make sure FOX News and other right wing media outlets have the administration's talking points.

Quoted @markknoller

“We may have the best economy we ever had," said Pres Trump, citing job growth, drop in unemployment, and other indicators. But made no mention of $2-trillion hike in the National Debt on his watch, and OMB forecast last week that Federal deficit this year will top $1-trillion.

Mr.President, we have a few questions... 🤔 #FactsMatter
