Veep Biden His Time on Marijuana

Biden: "Focusing resources on interdicting or convicting people for smoking marijuana is a waste of our resources."

Former drug warrior Vice President Joe Biden is at it again. While the man who helped create the Drug Czar office thinks “the idea of focusing significant resources on interdicting or convicting people for smoking marijuana is a waste of our resources,” he tells TIME, “That’s different than [legalization]. Our policy for our Administration is still not legalization, and that is [and] continues to be our policy.”

Biden adds: “I am not only the guy who did the crime bill and the drug czar, but I’m also the guy who spent years when I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee trying to change drug policy relative to cocaine - for example, crack and powder."
