President Biden is making a trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and PA Governor candidate John Fetterman took to twitter to make some requests.
“The president needs to use his executive authority to begin descheduling marijuana, I would love to see him do this prior to his visit to Pittsburgh. This is just common sense and Pennsylvanians overwhelmingly support decriminalizing marijuana.”
Fetterman has made marijuana a leading issue between him and his opponent, Dr. Oz, who is against the legalization of marijuana.
I don’t want to hear any bullshit coming out of Dr. Oz’s campaign trying to conflate decriminalizing marijuana with seriously harmful crime.
Are we supposed to believe that neither he nor any members of his staff have ever used marijuana???

“@Potus you have the power to use your executive authority to chart a new course.”
It’s exciting to see someone so prominent in the national political discussion making a big case for legalization, and enough of this rhetoric will eventually force President Biden to make a more thorough response on the subject.
