2020 candidate Andrew Yang promises to legalize marijuana and pardon all non-violent drug offenders on 4/20 if he’s elected

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang pledged to legalize marijuana at the federal level if elected president and pardon all those who’ve been incarcerated for non-violent, drug-related offenses.

“I would legalize marijuana and then I would pardon everyone who’s in jail for a nonviolent drug-related offense,” Yang said at the National Action Network conference in New York City on Wednesday. “I would pardon them on April 20, 2021 and I would high-five them on the way out of jail.”

April 20, or 4/20, is considered a holiday by marijuana enthusiasts.
