Biden Pardons All Federal Convictions For Simple Marijuana Possession


Maybe Biden was listening to Harris who had his ear
Or maybe the Jamaican-American vote to the Blues he wanted to steer
But he announced that he will pardon all federal simple marijuana possession acts
Encouraged state governors where possession is legal to follow and pointed out possession convictions are mostly among blacks
It is only a question of time before marijuana possession and use will be legal in all 50 states
Even if criminal on federal statues after this pardon as de facto legislative legalization all prosecutions will abate
Since the sale of marijuana is still a federal crime and banks are loathe to bank legal marijuana dispensing stores
Forcing them to be cash and carry and magnets for felons who the cash on hand cannot ignore
Congress should pass a law legalizing possession and sale of the quantities legal in the states
Although many doctors would prefer delay until studies on lung damage from smoking marijuana have been subject to thorough debate
