Is Joe Biden soft on drug crimes because his son loves crack so much?
We may never know, but one thing is for certain: Joe Biden doesn’t want anyone sitting in jail for using or distributing drugs — even heroin and fentanyl, which are currently causing genocide in the United States.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki graced us with Biden’s stance on drugs, saying “no one should in jail because of drug use.”
“The president continues to believe that no one should be in jail because of drug use,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said when asked about Biden’s views on the use of illicit substances.

During the presidential campaign, Biden said he supported decriminalizing the use of marijuana.
“Number one, I think we should decriminalize marijuana, period,” Biden said on the debate stage in November 2019. “And I think everyone — anyone who has a record should be let out of jail, their records expunged, be completely zeroed out.”

Biden’s position on marijuana has changed significantly over the years.
In 2010, Biden said he believed “it would be a mistake” to legalize marijuana, and stated it was a “gateway drug.”
Psaki defended the administration’s record on drug decriminalization, noting the Drug Enforcement Agency has granted licenses for companies to cultivate marijuana for research purposes.
She said Biden also continued reviewing his executive clemency powers to reduce or eliminate federal drug sentences.
Biden has not issued any pardons for criminals currently in prison since taking office, despite former presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama both having commuted the sentences of some non-violent drug offenders.
Private citizens should be allowed to partake in any activity that suits their lifestyle, but the openness of Biden to support legal drug use reeks of the same brand of disgusting leftism seen in states like California, which actually provide bums with free drug paraphernalia.
Compare this administration to the previous one and you’ll see a glaring difference in the way Trump and Biden handle the harrowing effects of drug use.
Melania Trump, on one hand, actively worked to quell some of the tragedy on America’s streets as a result of the opioid crisis. Biden, on the other hand, is encouraging Americans to use drugs.
See the difference?
