US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said he considers the legalization of marijuana possible. He said this at a meeting with voters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which was broadcast by ABC TV channel.
“I don’t think people should be sent to jail for using drugs. These people should be sent for compulsory treatment, we should build clinics in order to cure these people of drug addiction. We should decriminalize marijuana so that cases related to this, were not registered as people and when detained by the police, a person could say that he had no criminal history, “the democrat noted.
As you know, in the United States, possession and smoking of marijuana are prohibited at the federal level, but in a number of states, its use is allowed for recreational purposes.
