Today's Weed News for August 23rd 2018 #FAFSA

in financialaid •  3 months ago


For today's weed news we go to great Washington D.C.

Senator Cory Booker just introduced the Simplifying Financial Aid for Students Act of 2018, a federal bill that wants to let people with previous drug convictions still receive financial aid for college!

As it stands right now, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid asks students "Have you been convicted for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (such as grants, work-study or loans)?"

By answering "yes" to this question, applicants are all but sure to be denied any aid. This happens to around a thousand students annually.

But Booker's proposed bill doesn't stop there. As the name says, he also wants to see the FAFSA process simplified and to see financial aid extended to students who qualify as DREAMers.

Senator Booker has become a very vocal supporter of cannabis in the Senate in recent years and looks like he will continue to do so in the future.

Let's hope that this bill is successful so that smart kids who get faded can still get help paying for school and have a chance of finding good paying jobs and careers thereafter. We all know school is expensive as hell.

Shoutouts to Senator Cory Booker!

And that's what's up in Washington DC.
