What Is Biden’s Beef With Cannabis? What’s canceled going on with Biden’s perspective on the cannabis plant? Does he blame his son Hunter’s substance abuse on cannabis? Unfortunately, Biden seems to be immersed in the "drug gateway conundrum." This is sad because the gateway drug theory has been...

Not to be ageist but imo its because we're run by a gerontocracy, all out of touch. They aren't progressing with the times changing and are holding the up and coming generations back by not listening and looking into how we think and feel. Its archaic they can barley comprehend newer technology how are they to comprehend the newer studies done with newer technologies, feels like we need a younger generation more in abundance to advocate.

This, unfortunately seniority and prior experience becomes a slight edge a lot of times compared to others running, considering our population/people running for government to fill a limited number of seats.

As one of the folks in the middle who will soon enough be part of that gerontocracy (except the cool ones who invented video games and the Internet) it has been this way for a very long time. I doubt my generation will wind up with much power though, there just aren't very many of us.

Biden is a classic drug warrior. He thinks drugs are bad and make people lazy and stupid and distracted. He only backed away from all out drug war because people no longer support that. Biden played a key role in enabling police to confiscate property without any charges or trial and that is now above two billion a year.

The dude literally created the prison system we have today. Newer and more prisons were built because of this guy. People are in jail right this very moment because of petty amount of possession thanks to Biden. Harris literally brags about locking up marijuana users and forcing them into state labor (slavery). She has suppressed evidence to wrongly convict people over some smoke.

Civil forfeiture is one of the most messed up laws and there are so many cases of people getting their money stolen by cops. I play poker and its normal for me to have several thousand dollars on me and it's a scary thing to think about

It’s the result of having to decide which guy in their 70s we want to vote for. We will get the America we want. It will just be when we’re in our 70s.

I like Biden but once all the boomers are out of office the better governments will be. The problem is all these boomers are bringing their beliefs and the ways of being a politician from the 70s and 80s to the 2000s and they have no place here, it's 2021. They're ways of thinking are old and they all need to get the f*** out of office.

That's true, however, I feel Biden is the least boomer out of all the boomers.

Not being successful of delivering their promises or changing their position doesn't mean they're lying. There are so many other factors comes to play. It's politicians and they have to give up some of their promises to win other promises.

He needs a bit more pressure from we the voters. OK, he's not thrilled with cannabis. But if we Coloradans could push Hickenlooper into legalizing, we can push Biden. The "Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol" frame seems to work well to give reluctant legalizers a handrail to hold on to while walking back prohibition.

It sucks because the presidents exposure to drugs has been all negative.

I think he's more into a lot progressive agenda than most of the younger generation. When it comes to weed, he didn't put his foot down, but that doesn't me we overlook all the progressive agendas he has.

He's a centrist not a progressive. He is pro law enforcement.

He's a democrat, not a progressive. He's not a centrist.

Saying someone is pro-law enforcement says only that they have common sense, not where they fall on the political spectrum.

All the progressive left is pro-law enforcement. Left is the direction of tyranny, not liberty.

Not a single person posting here read this article. It contains exactly zero information about Biden being "against" legalization. Zero information about the speculation on Hunter Biden either.

Biden is like tens of millions of authoritarian Democrats and Republicans in that he believes that if he disapproves of something it should be illegal. Unfortunately, he is in a position to act upon his jackboot beliefs.

He's pretty progressive though, all for change. He doesn't sound like the Joe Biden we knew in the past 30 years

There are no shortage of shitty takes in here. Look I love cannabis. I've been smoking for 12 years. But stop for just one second, and consider that most of you don't have a son or daughter with a substance abuse problem.


Image
pearlsbeforswyne

I understand why as a family member to literally nothing but struggling addicts, its not a matter of understanding his point of view. He's so wrapped up in his own point of view that he's doing nothing to either strengthen his argument or hinder it by actually using his position as president to do the research. He's of course welcome to be bias but to be bias because you aren't looking into it yourself when the information is literally at your finger tips and you can request any number of studies to be done to influence your position. No different then anti-maskers/vaxxers ignoring science because they don't want to hear it, their feelings are facts to them. He needs to man up and look into it if its because his son is a drug addict, which Bidens not doing because cannabis has numerous studies showing how it helps with those struggling with addiction. All boils down to either he has other priorities and his opinion means more than fact or he's to lazy and bias to look into it and the countries opinion still means less.

Political and old people are dumb when it comes to weed.

tonynjeninfla

So the guy who passed legislation for mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses, doesn’t want to legalize weed? You don’t say??? If you think Kamala who has incarcerated lots of people, over drug laws, and laughed about smoking weed herself, is gonna change the laws you’re crazy.

Damn. It's almost like a guy that's been in politics for 49 years has no business governing the modern world. The man has accomplished almost nothing in his half century of politics, other than his crime bill in the 90s which is arguably the most racist piece of legislation passed in recent decades.

Let's wait and see. I think he's doing great.

Biden is a 70 year old white man of course he’s against marijuana. States just have to take the bull by the horns and legalize themselves. And if you really believe in the cause donate time and money to the states that are very much against legalization, once we get those states on board, it’s over and the feds will come in and legalize it and add a national sales tax on it like cigarettes

I have to say though, he way more understanding to new generations than his predecessors.

You're completely incorrect on that. Trump said he was in favor of states rights to legislate cannabis how they see fit. Trump legalized hemp with the farm act. And the GOP wrote the current legislation to allow Banks to do business with the Cannabis industry.

Biden, and all those other 65+ yr old, life term politicians are All dying off, finally. We should start smoking marijuana now, because the next set of politicians will start fucking up something else...they should be limited to 5 years in office. It would help keep out corruption, and keep things moving with the times. All that being said, who cares he is about dead, and the next person will legalize it, just for the votes!

Biden is a stupid drooling demented old fuck who is part of the establishment and has 50 years of shit politics in his wake. His views are not his own, never have been, fuck, his words aren’t even his own. Remember when he blatantly plagiarized Kennedy in 1988 presidential campaign? He is a parrot of his party. Nothing more.

Pretty sure it is just for appearances. If he were totally pro-weed, it would just be more ammo for Faux News to use against him.

Biden wants to control. He will choose what is good for us. Now shut up and take your experimental vaccine.

Donald Trump supported states rights to regulate cannabis.

Ugh, why the fuck are we talking about this dipshit. Whatever Biden is, Trump is way way way way worse. Let's just move on and forget about him. He was terrible for our country. He caused so many problems. SO MANY!

The true irony is that his brother Jim partnered with me in a cannabis growing operation 4 years ago when he lost to Hillary.


Image
thatpotguy

Their family spent a year pursuing cannabis growing and retail.opertunities with my business in 2017. Still have the contract. So...let's lock weed people up, yet want the weed industry money when no ones looking. Wait, cancel that, Im running for president again. There's ALWAYS a justification. No integrity. He and Kamala have been responsible for more cannabis arrest due to.policy than anyone I can think of. True story.

His main problem is old age, but worry not! For Biden best attribute is his ability to listen and conforom with others member of his party

"Conform", yeah that's what I want. A president who just does whatever anyone tells him. Wonder what things the Chinese government will have him do this week?
