Hey Pres. Biden, how about pardoning anyone convicted of selling bongs while you are at it. It was your stupid law in the first place. @JeromeBaker420— Tommy Chong (@tommychong) October 6, 2022

• Berner's friends in Cypress Hill had this to say at FB:
"Finally A Step In The Right Direction!! Big ups to him for this one is a huge win for the cannabis, let’s see if it falls through. Now bring them gas prices down."
“It’s awesome to see things are moving in the right direction. Cannabis laws have negatively impacted people for way too long.”
"This one's for you, @JoeBiden!"
"Who did this? The old president. Obama didn't do it. More credit to him because Joe really doesn't know anything about pot. He thinks THC is that channel that shows the old movies."
• Stephen Colbert whooped and called it "a hell of a Green New Deal" on The Late Show.
• Jimmy Kimmel explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live:
"The move stops short of full decriminalization, which will probably have to wait until we have President Woodrow Harrelson or something. It is the most cannabis-friendly decision by a U.S. president yet. I for one am just glad that Willie Nelson is alive to see this happen."
Cue to 1:26...
• Fellow late-night host Jimmy Fallon offered this gag on Tonight Show:
"The President canceled student loan debt and now he's pardoning people for weed. I think Biden's going to be able to get into any frat he wants right now."

• Country music singer Margo Price in Rolling Stone:
"Biden has taken a step in the right direction, but it just impacts 6,500 that had simple possession... I just don't know that we should be celebrating Biden's move quite as much as we are since it impacts such a small amount of people."
• Rapper Xhibit via his Napalmbrands Instagram account:
"Ok @joebiden we see you!! Huge step in the right direction."
