Sen. John Fetterman Sparks Conversation About Cannabis Reform With 4/20 Tweet


by Kelby Vera at

Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) concentrated on changing cannabis laws in a series of Twitter posts on Thursday.

The legislator marked April 20 – also known as 4/20, a celebration of all things cannabis ― by passing along a message about marijuana reform to his 77,000 followers.

Fetterman started his posts wearing a stony expression while holding up a green flag that said, “It’s 420 somewhere.”

“It’s 4:20 on 4/20. That’s the tweet,” he wrote.

Fetterman then hashed out his plans for more sensible pot policies.

“No more Reefer Madness,” he wrote while calling for the Drug Enforcement Administration to remove cannabis from its list of Schedule 1 drugs, a category that includes substances like methamphetamine and heroin.

The politician, who recently returned to Washington, D.C., after treatment for depression, also suggested expunging marijuana convictions and enacting what he called “common sense home grow” policies.
