What does President Biden have against weeds?
During this government, only one obstacle seems to stand in the way of federal cannabis reforms. That obstacle appears to be President Joe Biden.
Before the election, Biden’s campaign promise contained plans to release Americans jailed for cannabis counts. He also promised to use his executive powers, if elected, to target certain nonviolent and drug crimes.
Now, with more than 100 days in office, it is becoming clear that the Biden government lacks a solid plan for legalizing marijuana at the federal level.
Over 70% of the American population are on board cannabis reforms. This is one of the reasons many voted for these Democrats. Instead of keeping the promises made during the campaign, the president has ignored all calls to follow his predecessor’s lead on these reforms.
President Trump took concrete steps for the cannabis community by freeing more than a dozen federal prisoners who were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 15 years to life on cannabis-related charges. These censuses include the cultivation, transportation, and sale of marijuana on American soil.
Biden suddenly hesitates to play through the next phase of cannabis reform.
Biden has always been anti-cannabis reform since the beginning of his career as a US politician. Some of the tough anti-cannabis laws can be attributed to Joe Biden; He wrote several bills to tighten the criminal penalties for these drugs.
In his early days as the House legislature, Biden was a passionate drug warrior. He also made sure to brag about the ancient sentences he helped sign the law.
It’s now 2021, but it seems the 78-year-old president has still not caught up with several Americans’ stance on cannabis policy.
Recent polls show that of the 70% who prefer cannabis, 78% are Democrats and 62% are Republicans. One only has to wonder why the president is rejecting something his party wants.
The irony is that the opponents he beat for his party’s presidential ticket support all marijuana reforms. Current Vice President Kamala Harris also supports the lifting of the federal marijuana ban. Biden is one of the few minorities in his age group who oppose these federal reforms.
The White House has ended the appointment of more than five members of the Biden administration. This happened in March of this year. These people are said to have admitted to having used cannabis in the past.
The White House, under Biden’s authority, did so on an apology that cannabis is illegal under federal law. This is not the progressive stance Americans hoped for when Biden took office. This approach is rather disappointing. Hopefully there is more to it than is said.
I have found that the president would rather support federal policies that decriminalize low-level possession of the drug than lift the federal ban. Many Americans will not support this view. It’s archaic.
Not to mention, it doesn’t correct the systemic complexity in the U.S. cannabis industry.
What use is a federal policy that would have only minimal effects at the same federal level?
This would not remove the drug from its current List 1 drug status. Therefore, the conflict between the Controlled Substances Act and state laws that allow the decriminalization of cannabis would remain.
VP Harris, on the other hand, is one of the main sponsors of the MORE Act. Although the ACT was not fully approved. If approved, it will remove cannabis from the controlled substances list. That said, it will decriminalize cannabis at the federal level. It would also ensure that the stigma assigned to previous cannabis users is a thing of the past.
However, the recent termination of these previous users goes against what the Vice President claims to believe. Rather, she shares Biden’s beef with cannabis. That makes no sense. It would only do more to convince other anti-cannabis reform Americans to quit the employment of former cannabis users and maintain the discrimination associated with the drug.
Not democratic! Democrats are known for using their platform to demand the decriminalization and rescheduling of cannabis products. The party is also all-in on the licensing of cannabis for medical purposes at the federal level.
There is speculation that the president appears to be holding back cannabis reforms based on what he went through with his son Hunter.
51-year-old Biden already has problems with cocaine addiction. His book – Schöne Dinge – tells of his dark experience with alcohol and cocaine.
Even if the president has the best of intentions in his heart, the legitimacy of this situation cannot be ignored. During his campaign, Biden himself agreed that no one should be in jail for censer. This is May and no concrete steps have been taken yet. The Presidency’s apology focuses on people getting old food, vaccines, and back to school at some point.
No president should be too busy developing progressive policies that affect the lives of his citizens.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has begun taking steps to allow lawmakers to finally decriminalize marijuana. Sen Schumer has said that cannabis legalization must have progressed gradually by the next unofficial weed day – April 20th.
However, this is hardly possible if the president does not have full support.
The Republicans, in addition to the existing filibuster, will also try to bring the process to a standstill.
To overcome this filibuster, a minimum of 10 GOP votes is required
Biden won’t be quick to incorporate cannabis reforms into law because of his anti-marijuana stance.
However, the sooner he gets rid of his old way of thinking, the sooner the US top industry can be perfectly taxed and regulated to affect the country’s economy.
The federal legislature must convince the president by making him aware of the benefits of these much-needed legal proceedings.
The president needs to wake up and smell the coffee asap!
