Cannabis News: President Biden’s stance on cannabis has not changed

0



U.S. President Joe Biden still opposes federal cannabis legalization, according to comments from White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki in a press conference moments after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and lawmakers presented a long-awaited draft proposal this week. Psaki did say, though, that moves to promote more gradual reforms, such as possession decriminalization, would be “encouraged” by President Biden, as promised during the election campaign.

“Nothing has changed, and there’s no new endorsements of legislation to report today,” Psaki said during the briefing.

Psaki’s comments are disappointing to supporters, but they’re not surprising given Biden’s longstanding resistance to recreational cannabis legalization, which is favored by the general public and especially with Democrats.
