Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin (D) says there needs to be a nationwide evaluation on the legalization of marijuana.
“We need to have a real evaluation nationwide,” Durkin, who is also a former federal prosecutor, told Hill.TV during an interview that aired on Wednesday.
“We need to make sure we do it in a way that decriminalizes people, doesn’t have a criminal justice intervention when its not appropriate and focus those criminal justice resources on those things that are real threats to communities,” she continued.
Durkin added that states need a “unifying force” when it comes to cannabis legalization to ensure consistency in laws from state to state.
