Biden Exploring Clemency For Non-Violent Federal Drug Inmates, Advocates Want All Pot Prisoners Released
President Biden is considering using his executive authority to grant clemency to people serving federal prison sentences for certain non-violent drug convictions
Efforts are underway to expunge the cannabis records of imprisoned individuals in select states, and proponents of marijuana reform are hoping the MORE Act is passed.
The Biden-Harris Administration promised marijuana decriminalization and expungement, which advocates arguedoesn't go far enough.
Cannabis reform, or lack thereof, appears an influential factor in the upcoming presidential election based on recent comments by both campaigns.
Biden’s plan additionally calls for ending the sentencing disparity between crack and cocaine convictions, which data has shown creates harsher penalties for people of color.
The MORE Act would deschedule marijuana and create programs to assist those communities disproportionately affected by the War on Drugs.
Marijuana expungement is an often laborious, bureaucratic process, but algorithms have eased the process.
How does one go about getting his or her minor marijuana conviction erased from their permanent record? Here are the basic details.
