I am announcing a pardon of all prior Federal offenses of simple possession of marijuana. I have directed the Attorney General to develop an administrative process for the issuance of certificates of pardon to eligible individuals. There are thousands of people who have prior Federal convictions for marijuana possession, who may be denied employment, housing, or educational opportunities as a result. My action will help relieve the collateral consequences arising from these convictions. – Biden
It’s about damn time. I defy any liquor-swilling opponent to make their case against this long-overdue action.
I’m never happy to praise a Democrat, but of late….they’ve been the proponents of Civil Liberties.
