Lagging Dem Candidate Demands Govt Loans For Growers Of THIS

Via The Washington Examiner:

Tucked away inside 2020 Democrat Kamala Harris’ criminal justice plan is a proposal to give government subsidies to “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals” who wish to start their own marijuana business.

┬áThe California senator’s proposal, released Monday, describes how reforming the nation’s marijuana laws can help end “mass incarceration,” and racial disparities in the criminal justice system. One way to deal with that, Harris proposes, is to give federal dollars to states and localities so they can give loans for qualifying Americans interested in hopping onto the country’s partially-legalized agricultural sector.

“[Provide] states and localities with funds to make loans to assist small businesses in the marijuana industry that are owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals,” Harris’ plan reads.

The funds used for these new grants would come from a “sales tax on marijuana and marijuana products.”
