CLEVELAND- Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will hold a rally at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center Monday evening.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event starts at 7 p.m. It is open to the public, but people should RSVP here.

Sanders is expected to talk about criminal justice reform, immigration reform and his college affordability.

Another big issue, especially in Ohio, is the legalization of marijuana. Sunday night in Iowa, Sanders said he's not advocating it or proposing that the government legalize it, but he does want change.

"Right now, I have introduced legislation by the way that would take marijuana out of the controlled substance act and not make it a federal crime," Sander said. "Why did I do that? Why did I do that? And to be honest with you, I smoked marijuana when I was young. Twice in my life."

Former Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner will join the U.S. Senator from Vermont. Turner is a longtime supporter of Hillary Clinton, but recently switched sides and endorsed Sanders. Sanders tweeted last week that he was humbled to have Turner's support.
