In contrast to Wednesday’s Good Morning America (GMA) eagerly promoting Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declaring war on Zyn nicotine pouches, NewsNation and On Balance host Leland Vittert took Schumer to task on Tuesday for his hypocrisy of being a supporter of marijuana but not Zyn.

Using a 2021 clip of Schumer tout marijuana legalization as pro-“freedom”, Vittert pointed out Schumer has less concern with something that “16 million people report being addicted among 52 million Americans 12 and older” who “say they’ve used marijuana in the past month” and “[n]early one-third of users say they can’t quit.”
