Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Senate Democrats will ‘soon’ pursue legalizing marijuana even if President Joe Biden remains against the move.  ‘We will move forward,’ Schumer said in an interview with Politico that was released Saturday. ‘He said he’s studying the issue, so [I] obviously want to give him a little time to study it. I want to make my arguments to him, as many other advocates will. But at some point, we’re going to move forward, period.’  White House press secretary Jen Psaki said last month that Biden’s views on marijuana remain where they were during the 2020 campaign – he’s for decriminalizing the drug, but not for federal recreational legalization.
