Bernie Sanders revealed a plan to legalize marijuana on the federal level through executive action in 100 days. The plan also has mechanisms for limiting the industry by labeling marijuana a controlled substance so it can be regulated for safety and ban targeting young people.

The plan also seeks to alleviate the racial injustices caused by the war on drugs with a tax to pay for four programs aimed at addressing the damages. One of the programs is a $10 billion development fund for communities hit hardest by the drug war.
