I agree with my friend and former High Times colleague David Bienenstock when he says in the video below:
"Smoke a joint, hold your nose and vote Biden!"
Joe Biden is not by any means the perfect choice, but he is our only real chance in 2020 to eject Donald Trump from Washington.
I preferred Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris for the Democratic nomination. We got Biden, fair and square.
Biden has run a commendable campaign during Covid, unlike the incumbant.
At the last debate, Biden talked about treatment instead of jail for drug offenders. I don't think he wants people who are arrested for marijuana possession to go to treatment. He favors decriminalization. His VP Kamala Harris is for legalization.
A vote for Biden-Harris is a vote for drug-policy law reform.
Forget the past, the crime bills that Biden endorsed and since apologized for. It's time to move on.
So repeat after me: Smoke a joint, hold your nose and vote Biden!
