If he has his say the green, leafy stuff will become legal across America.

Sen. Cory Booker’s introduction of his landmark bill to end federal marijuana prohibition took Facebook Live and beyond by storm Tuesday.

In the FB video, Booker calls legalization an urgent necessity because poor, minority residents are subjected to arrest at alarming rates — one of several reasons he says the war on drugs has failed.

“They divert critical resources from fighting violent crimes, tear families apart and waste billions in taxpayer dollars each year,” Booker says.

The senator’s bill would automatically expunge federal marijuana use and possession crimes and allow those locked up in federal prison to petition a court for resentencing.

Marijuana is currently the most popular-used illegal drug worldwide.

But with Republicans in control of both the House and Senate, critics say Booker’s bill is a pipe dream — and has zero chance of going anywhere.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has vowed to revive the drug war, staunchly opposing pot and pledging to fight it federally.

In a 2016 Senate hearing, he even went so far as to say, ‘Good people don’t smoke marijuana.’

“We need grown-ups in charge in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized,” Sessions says. “It ought not to be minimized, that it’s in fact a very real danger.” ~ US Senate Drug Caucus.

Booker has been an outspoken critic of Sessions.

Earlier this year, the senator re-introduced the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act to protect medical marijuana patients in legal states without fear of federal prosecution.

Weed is only legal in Alaska, California, Colorado, DC, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

On Tuesday Booker told NBC News that he has also seen a lot of compelling preliminary data that shows a drop in opioid overdoses in areas with better access to marijuana.
