Biden Says He’s ‘Working On’ Fulfilling Marijuana Campaign Pledge To Free Prisoners

Biden says his administration is “working on” plans to release cannabis inmates

President Joe Biden says his administration is “working on” plans to fulfill his campaign pledge to free people who are incarcerated for marijuana. This marks the first time that the president has publicly made a substantive comment about cannabis policy since taking office more than a year ago.

“I don’t think anyone should be in prison for the use of marijuana,” Biden said in response to a question from The New York Post’s Steven Nelson on Saturday night after stepping off Marine One on the White House lawn.

“We’re working on the crime bill now,” the president added —though it’s not clear what legislation he was referring to.

White House press staff did not respond to Marijuana Moment’s request for clarification by time of publication.
