Will Biden federally decriminalize cannabis?
One of President Biden’s original campaign promises was to #decriminalize #cannabis and expunge prior convictions with little done to actually accomplish these goals until recently. Many are now wondering if these changes will have the desired effects of setting the stage for federal decriminalization or if it was just an act aimed at garnering more political support for his administration. So, the big question is: will President Biden actually make good on his promise and #federally decriminalize cannabis before he leaves office?
Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. The reality is that federal decriminalization of cannabis is a complicated issue with a lot of moving parts. There are many factors that could potentially impact the President’s decision, including public opinion, pressure from other lawmakers, and even international treaties.
That being said, there are also many reasons to believe that President Biden will make good on his promise and federal decriminalize cannabis before he leaves office. For one, there is increasing public support for cannabis reform in the United States. In addition, there is a growing number of lawmakers who are openly supportive of federal decriminalization. And last but not least, federal decriminalization would align with President Biden’s stated goal of reducing racial disparities in the criminal justice system.
