Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer called for the decriminalization of marijuana on Twitter Friday, and he accidentally made the argument for conservative policy.

“It’s time we allow states, once and for all, to have the power to decide what works best for them,” the Democrat said, unaware that his own party advocates a very different line.

Schumer sent these tweets on Friday, April 20th — aka 4/20 — a day when people traditionally celebrate smoking marijuana. It’s unclear exactly where the holiday came from. Pew Research Center reported in February that 61 percent of Americans support legalizing the drug.
