Cory Booker Wants Drug Policy Overhaul

Newark Mayor Corey Booker said last Monday that he supports medical marijuana in New Jersey and that he wants to "go beyond that," and move toward a complete overhaul of state and federal drug policy.

Booker's comments came during an appearance on HuffPost Live in which he discussed his political future, including a possible run for New Jersey governor in 2013.

Booker has been an outspoken critic of federal drug policy in the past.
