Joe Biden's record on Drug Policy and Capital Punishment

Where Presidential Candidate Joe Biden Stands On Marijuana

Published 1 hour ago on April 25, 2019 By Kyle Jaeger

Former Vice President Joe Biden is making another run for the White House, he announced on Thursday. The former senator, who served as chair of the influential Judiciary Committee that helped shape U.S. drug policy during an era of heightened scaremongering and criminalization, was among the most prominent Democratic drug warriors in Congress for decades.

And while many 2020 Democratic candidates have evolved significantly on drug policy—and particularly marijuana reform—over the years, Biden has barely budged. While he’s recognized the long-term harms of certain pieces of legislation he supported and has made some efforts to attempt to repair that damage, overall he’s maintained a firm opposition to cannabis legalization—a stance that sets him far apart from every other major Democratic contender.

3. Also

Also, you do realize that you were replying to a post in the Drug Policy group right? If you don't think it's an important issue, you probably shouldn't be in this group.

4. I think Biden will flip on cannabis-maybe call for

legalize with some additional safeguards.

As part of the previous administration he was opposed to legalization but I think he will side with those who want legalization with more safeguards due to today's cannabis being more potent.
