Senator Cory Booker stabbed Wednesday night in Joe Vice's Democratic debate in former vice president Joe Biden for not supporting weed legalization.

& # 39; This week I literally heard him say that I don't think we should legalize marijuana, & # 39; Booker said about Biden. & # 39; I thought you might be high when you said it, & # 39; he added, turning to the previous cattle and smiling laughing from the audience.

Booker explained that marijuana in the United States is already legal for privileged people, but that the war on drugs still confines black and brown Americans.

Biden said his position was marijuana decriminalization.

& # 39; And anyone who has a record must be released from prison, his record must be canceled, set to zero, & # 39; he went on. & # 39; But I think based on data it makes sense to investigate the long-term effects on marijuana use. & # 39;

Booker had raised the pot in the context of Democrats who found a candidate who, as president, will be an advocate for black voters.

& # 39; No one on this stage would need a focus group to hear from African-American voters. Black voters are angry and worried. They are pissed because we only pay attention to problems when people are looking for a voice & # 39 ;, says Booker, who is black. & # 39; We do not want people to miss and lose the opportunity because we nominate someone who is unfamiliar, has no authentic connection. & # 39;

Booker's remarks seemed to be aimed at South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is rising in Iowa, but hardly supports black voters and whose campaign has made mistakes to preserve demography lately.

Instead, Booker revolved around Biden, long regarded as the leader of the great Democratic platoon.

& # 39; I have a lot of respect for the vice president, & # 39; Booker said. & # 39; He swore to me in my office and he is a hero. & # 39;

The New Jersey senator then called Biden high – a highlight of the debate, which was overshadowed by hours of testimony of cancellation investigations all day Wednesday.

Biden, who served as President Obama's vice president, said he continued to be part of that Obama coalition.

& # 39; I am from a black community in terms of my support, & # 39; Biden boasted.

The ex-veep said that more people in the black community have come to support him because they know him well.

& # 39; Three former black caucus seats, the only African-American woman elected to the Senate, & # 39; said Biden.

At that moment Senator Kamala Harris moved on.

& # 39; No, the other is here, & # 39; she said.

Biden referred to former senator Carol Moseley Braun.

& # 39; I said the first African-American woman, & # 39; said Biden, but of course he didn't.

Booker had one last point in the pot.

& # 39; There are currently people in Congress who admit that they smoke marijuana while there are people – our children are now in prison for those drug crimes, & # 39; he said to the crowd.

In February, Harris admitted she smoked pot in college and inhaled & # 39 ;.
