Joe Biden went to Las Vegas, of all places, to proclaim that he’s hesitant about supporting the legalization of marijuana because he believes it’s a gateway drug.
He then lazily mumbled that states should determine weed’s legality which is absolute bullshit. Don’t let state legalized marijuana distract you from the fact that possession of weed can still end in a felony because the federal government doesn’t have the same legal standards as your state.
[Admiral Ackbar voice] IT’S A TRAP.
Here is Biden’s direct dumb quote:
“The truth of the matter is, there’s not nearly been enough evidence that has been acquired as to whether or not it is a gateway drug. It’s a debate, and I want a lot more before I legalize it nationally. I want to make sure we know a lot more about the science behind it.”
What an antiquated, Richard Nixon sock-puppeting, corny non-stance to take.
This has been Joe Biden’s entire campaign. He couldn’t even say with confidence that he’s against weed. You can’t say whether or not it’s a gateway drug? Fucking Google it, my guy.
Joe Biden’s centrism is nauseating. He is so dead set on maintaining the status quo and not actually changing a damn thing that he doesn’t have opinions on anything.
He is running because he believes he’s supposed. He’s the fun guy who was standing slightly behind Barack Obama when Obama was the one actually accomplishing things.
He’s really out here trying to get audiences to run to the theatres to see Biden: The Obama Reboot movie like Elizabeth Banks trying to get us to see a new Charlie’s Angels movie but Kristen Stewart isn’t Cameron Diaz. And Biden isn’t Obama.
Weed is bad because for Biden’s entire life it was bad and he can’t catch up to present day America where weed is quite literally the least of our worries.
Let’s also remember the specific baggage that comes with Biden when it comes to the discussion of crimes. Biden made his political name by stomping his feet and demanding that we expand prisons and arrest as many people as possible.
So pardon me if I don’t want to hear Officer Biden talk about the criminalization of anything ever again.
But let’s focus on the gateway drug aspect of his anti-weed argument. Joey Biden doesn’t want to legalize weed because he’s soooooo worried that smoking weed will lead everyone to doing much harder drugs, ya know, like the highly addictive pain killers that hospitals hand out like candy when you have a runny nose.
Here’s what the Institute of Medicine reported in 1999 about whether or not weed is a gateway drug:
“typically precedes rather than follows initiation of other illicit drug use” but “does not appear to be a gateway drug to the extent that it is the cause or even that it is the most significant predictor of serious drug abuse; that is, care must be taken not to attribute cause to association.”
Just a reminder that this was easily Googled. If I were to run for president, I’d probably give this one a quick search on my phone before speaking about it as if the information is locked in a vault in a cavern under the Arabian Sea.
It’s simply a fact: most people who smoke weed don’t ever go onto to smoke harder substances.
What is this election? Get Joe Biden’s re-animated skeleton out of here. The only thing lazier than this man’s campaign are the lazy coward voters who are voting for Biden simply because they feel comfortable with him and they believe he has the best chance to beat Trump.
According to polls, most Democratic candidates have a higher approval rate than Trump. It’s not as if Biden needs to be the one to take down Trump. Literally everyone is more likable than that man. Why are we settling for the guy who thinks smoking the devil’s lettuce will send us to hell.
At the end of the day, when old white people think of weed smokers, they think of people who look like Snoop Dogg instead of people who look like Willie Nelson. And in their minds, the former are criminals and the latter are ‘eccentric’.
Weed is fine.
Joe Biden is a nothing candidate that cannot inspire any voters to actually get to the polls on Election Day and Donald Trump is going to casually walk into his second term essentially unopposed.
Get. Biden. OUT OF HERE.
