A major shift in drug policy in America
Biden pardons thousands of marijuana convicts
All those found guilty of possession of ordinary marijuana will be released
Washington. There has been a big change in the policy of possession of drugs in America. US President Joe Biden waived the sentence of thousands of people accused of possession of marijuana under federal laws, but this pardon is only for those who have received regular marijuana.
Biden said in his statement. “I am granting a pardon for prior federal felonies of simple possession of marijuana. I have ordered the development of an administrative procedure to issue pardon certificates to all persons under the jurisdiction of the Attorney General.” “Notably, this order only applies to those convicted of federal ‘simple possession of marijuana,'” he said. No one should be in federal prison just for possession of marijuana.”
Possession of marijuana is illegal under federal law. As a candidate, Biden stopped supporting the legalization of marijuana, but supported the demonetization movement. In his statement he said: “Our failed approach to marijuana has ruined the lives of many, and it’s time we righted those mistakes.
Rivers of blood are flowing again in America. The cook continued the attack with a knife, 2 were killed and 6 injured. the reason is strange
Let us tell you that marijuana is listed under Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act of the Federal Law. Marijuana belongs to the same category of drugs as heroin and LSD. The Hill reported that the federal government believes it has greater potential for abuse, while Biden said the illegal purchase and sale of marijuana should be controlled and banned.
