At a rally today in San Jose, Sen. Bernie Sanders told a crowd that he would vote "yes" for the Adult Use Marijuana Act, which will be on California's ballot this November.

"If I lived in California, I would vote ‘yes’ to legalize marijuana," the Democratic presidential hopeful said, according to David Siders of The Sacramento Bee.

Hillary Clinton has said she supports relaxing marijuana laws, including removing it as a Schedule 1 narcotic to facilitate research. But she does not support full legalization and has yet to chime in on California's AUMA measure.
