Biden wants to use federal funds to speed-up expungement of marijuana records

Although presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is holding back on support for the legalization of cannabis, this week he suggested the use of federal aid in order to help states modernize their criminal record data systems and expunge marijuana convictions. 

Speaking about systemic racism, the former vice president noted how a low-level marijuana conviction can often impact one’s ability to achieve financial security later in life, particularly when it comes to people of color. 

“Getting caught for smoking marijuana when you’re young surely shouldn’t deny you, the rest of your life, being able to have a good-paying job or a career or a loan or an ability to rent an apartment. Right now, that criminal record is the weight that holds back too many people of color, and many whites as well,” Biden said.

However, the high cost of getting those records expunged presents itself a significant challenge. Still, Biden urged states to recognize the cost of preventing people with non-violent criminal records from re-entering and contributing to society. 

Biden went on to explain that even when states are willing to expunge a person’s record, “the record keeping-systems are so outdated, they don’t know how to do it.”

With this in mind, the presidential candidate poised to take on Donald Trump in November’s election pledged to introduce an automated expungement process with the support of federal money. 

“Under my plan, if a state decides it wants to implement an automated system for the sealing and expunging of certain nonviolent criminal records, if a state chooses to do that, the federal government will help put together the process and allow them the money to be able to know how to organize to do that. That’s what racial equity in our economy looks like,” he said, as reported by Marijuana Moment

As the outlet points out, Biden himself has sponsored some harsh anti-drug laws while he represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate, including the controversial Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. The bill is considered to be one of the main factors that contributed to the mass incarceration of the 1990s.  

A number of U.S. states have passed measures to expunge the records of low-level marijuana offenders recently, including New York and Illinois – the last state to have allowed recreational weed sales. 

Last month, lawmakers in Colorado passed legislation that grants the governor the ability to mass-pardon individuals with minor marijuana possession convictions.

7 Amazing Things to Know About Cannabis for an Amazing Love Life

Avatar

Published

on

How often have you heard someone say that food tastes better when you’re high? The same could go on and on about many other things. The hemp is a herb that coaxes you to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life, quite literally! That being said, one of the newest rage among 420-community is the impact it has on your love life. Indeed, you might have heard about the far-reaching benefits of CBD in your daily life, including fitness, wellness, spirituality, etc. The newest benefit could be witnessed not just alone but with your partner too.

Cannabis in Hindu Tantra was used for enhancing intimacy with your partners. And now as several countries have opened up to the hemp, it has again found its way into your hearts by improving your relationship in the following ways:– 👇

  1. Helps You Share Everything With Your Partner, Even Munchies

    It is no surprise that CBD lowers your inhibitions, and therefore there are no holds barred between you and your partner. More importantly, CBD brings back the pangs – not just in the hearing but also in the stomach. Therefore, be it sharing your deepest emotions and desires or sharing a bowl of midnight munchies, weed has you covered! 

    It is already a no-brainer how sharing with your significant other can improve the connection you have. Weed simply puts the smoke aside and sparks the fire between you. So, the next time your heart feels heavy or your stomach a bit light, consider popping a few THC gummies with your partner. Remember sharing is caring! Improves Your Communication With Your Partner

  2. Improves  Your Communication With Your Partner

    CBD and Communication? Yes, CBD heightens your reception but lowers your agitation. Therefore, you and your partner communicate better and, more importantly, openly. The only thing that impairs communication between two people is stress. The more you bottle-up feelings, the more you are prone to an outburst. Weed helps you relax and take things slow. Talk it out with your partner and stop to take a deep breath only.

  3. Makes You very Sensitive To Your  Partner’s Feelings

    CBD broadens your horizons. It helps you think from the other person’s point of view. CBD’s consumers are more likely to take care of the smaller things that their partners like. For example, many cannabis couples indulge in baking and cooking meals before being baked themselves! Weed helps you to pause and reflect. Since no judgment and discourse are open two-way between you and your partner, you are more likely to understand and feel their perspective better.

  4. Boost Sexual Intimacy

    Data collected by a popular dating app indicated that CBD for energy has latent aphrodisiac properties that boost sexual intimacy between you and your partner. CBD’s consumers are more likely to get off and have a pleasurable orgasm than others. Most CBD products also heighten your sensitivity towards the touch.

    Research indicates that CBD consumers tend to have frequent coitus and better orgasms. Especially for women, it helps to peak faster and climax better. Satisfied couples tend to be happy couples.

  5. Makes Each Other’s  Company More Pleasurable

    CBD’s takers often break out into giggles and laughter. The smallest and most unlikely of places become funny anecdotes. You and your partner can enjoy the small joys in life. Weed helps you sit back and take notice of the little things they do for you. With a casual hug or just holding hands through a horror movie, everything becomes a tad bit more lovable. Isn’t it?

  6. Baked Partners Bicker Less

    The next time things get heated up, you should lighten the ambiance, literally! The next time you and your partner want to sit down for a “talk,” how about doing it over a shared joint instead? You can find any online weed dispensary to fulfill your need for the joint. Weed lowers inhibitions but restricts reactions to a mild nature. It helps to ensure a more fruitful discussion minus the loud decibel levels. 

    In a sober life, saying sorry may take a lot of effort, but under the right circumstances admitting fault and moving past it without judgment is achieved better. Weed may not be the outlet for your problems, but it can be the right emotional outlet to better discuss your problems. 

  7. Deepens Your Connection With Your Partner

    Partners who bong better, bond better! Humor aside, it is right for CBD power couples. CBD has a magical way of bringing back the spark with your partner with the carefree spontaneity that you relish. It helps you think about them and, very importantly, for them.

    Be it a casual stroll in the park with a deep conversation about ‘Hello Kitty’ or just the random staring into deep eyes while she does the talking. CBD influence helps you relish every moment that you spend with your better half. 

    It relieves you of the superficial fights and small issues and encourages you to notice the things you like about them. Deep, meaningful relations are not forged overnight. They are a result of long intimate, and powerful memories with strong emotions. CBD, therefore, helps you to recreate that magic and give everyone some serious couple goals!

👉 Final Thought

As cannabis culture is catching on, it is being accepted legally in the majority of the countries. A weed-friendly relationship tends to be more open and less prone to inhibitions. This paves the way for a stronger, healthier bond physically and emotionally. You also try it if you have not yet and spice up your bond with your partner!
