Joe Biden threw his hat in the ring today, and Kyle Jaeger at Marijuana Moment has done an outstanding job of detailing Biden’s history of positions with regard to marijuana and drug policy.
Where Presidential Candidate Joe Biden Stands On Marijuana
Former Vice President Joe Biden is making another run for the White House, he announced on Thursday. The former senator, who served as chair of the influential Judiciary Committee that helped shape U.S. drug policy during an era of heightened scaremongering and criminalization, was among the most prominent Democratic drug warriors in Congress for decades.
And while many 2020 Democratic candidates have evolved significantly on drug policyâ€”and particularly marijuana reformâ€”over the years, Biden has barely budged.
It includes the video of Biden bragging about adding death penalties for drug crimes.
There are plenty of Democratic candidates in the field and all of them are better on drug policy than Joe Biden.
If the Dems nominate Biden for president they don’t deserve to win, and Trump will get four more years. Wake up Dems, the party of Biden, Pelosi, Wasserface and the rest of the dinosaurs are unelectable.
I couldn’t agree more.
BTW, that you Malc?
The Marijuana Moment piece on Joe Biden missed an important drug war achievement in the Delaware senatorâ€™s career as Ã¼ber-prohibitionist. While on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in May, 2000, then Senator Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr, authored the 44-page report that initiated Plan Colombia:
Plan Colombia ultimately contained a multi-million dollar bonus for the two leading helicopter companies in the US. John Lindsey-Poland discussed the cozy arrangement in his book Plan Colombia: US Ally Atrocities and Community Activism:
Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut, home of Sikorsky, also on the Foreign Relations Committee, lobbied hard for Plan Colombia. As did Sen. Paul Coverdell (R-GA), who proclaimed a new Colombian domino theory, stating that â€œColombia is the heart of the drug war, and we’d better get on with it. If we lose Colombia, then we lose everywhere.”
The tone of Senators Biden, Dodd, and Coverdale in relation to drugs and Colombia fits a well-known propaganda technique acknowledged by Nazi propagandist Hermann GÃ¶ring during the Nuremberg trials:
Authoritarianism in its application to drug enforcement continues to work in reverse. Canadian researchers led by Dr Emily Jenkins, a University of British Columbia professor of nursing who studies youth substance use, say that authoritarians like Joe Biden are being inept when they tell kids not to do drugs:
The study is called You can’t chain a dog to a porch: a multisite qualitative analysis of youth narratives of parental approaches to substance use.
Arrrgh. Cunning plans, greed, corruption and vice. Disgusting people then and disgusting people now. These people always liked to talk about some imaginary child to save, while they dumped deadly poisons on real children and their food, and terrorized, shot, and murdered real children in the name of the War on Drugs. Joe Biden is one of the worst.
Biden. Huh. Another of the decrepit Dem machine kingmakers on political life-support, who’s on his way out, while the young Dem radicals have slipped the machine’s leash and are loudly braying heresies. Biden’s another example of Fourth Turning politics advancing apace, refusing to acknowledge his irrelevance that everyone else can see plainly.
Cannabis use as an adjunct to exercise has become a trend in marijuana-legal states, improving physical outcomes and dispelling the couchlock myth:
Older adults would include Joe Biden. Fortunately for Joe and other seniors, medicinal marijuana is legally available in his home state of Delaware.
Progress was made at the University of Bristol by researchers Alexandra Fletcher-Jones, et al., in describing the function of cannabinoid receptors (CB1Rs) in the brain:
The Internet is showing Joe Biden no mercy. Itâ€™s hard to find people who have anything good to say about olâ€™ Joe, with the exception of prohibitionist Bill Oâ€™Reilly.

Why Weed Advocates Arenâ€™t Happy About Joe Biden
The list of articles against Biden is increasing as much as his donations. Latest poll clearly shows Democrats have the attention span of a gnat. Biden is still doubling down on his Reefer Madness.
Geneticists revealed new biomarkers for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder that should help dispel myths about marijuana causing psychosis or violent behavior. Their research makes it more difficult to link THC directly to a dysfunction occurring epigenetically in the IGF2 gene. However, CBD might show relevance, as itâ€™s been touted as an anti-psychotic with no side effects:
