Just waiting for Joe..

"I don't think there should - I don't think anyone in pri--anyone should be in prison for the use of marijuana. We're working on the Crime Bill now."

Just waiting for Joe..

Joe Biden arrived back from his trip to Saudi Arabia and although questions about the Saudi Crown Prince got bumped, he did answer a question about marijuana..

South Lawn - July 16, 2022
Q    Is the Saudi foreign minister lying, President Biden?

    The Saudi foreign minister says he didn’t hear you accuse the Crown Prince of Khashoggi’s murder.  Is he telling the truth?

    Q    Do you regret the fist bump, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT:  Why don’t you guys talk about something that matters?  I’m happy to answer a question that matters.

    Q    Will inflation go down from here, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT:  I’m hoping.  We’ll know in the next few weeks.

    Q    President Biden, will you be honoring your campaign pledge to release all the marijuana inmates in prison?
THE PRESIDENT:  I don’t think there should — I don’t think anyone in pri- — anyone should be in prison for the use of marijuana.  We’re working on the Crime Bill now.

    Thank you.
