Joe Biden’s Marijuana Pardon Has Arrived

I would like to say that Joe Biden is doing a good thing by pardoning people convicted of possessing small amounts of marijuana. Marijuana possession is a misdemeanor, but it can lead to jail time and other penalties which could affect someone’s life on and off the job.

The Joe Biden Marijuana Pardon is a new program that allows people with past marijuana convictions to have their records expunged. This is a huge step forward for criminal justice reform and will help countless people move on with their lives. The pardon is also a sign of progress when it comes to cannabis legalization. More and more states are legalizing marijuana, and the federal government is finally starting to catch up. This pardon is a giant step in the right direction and we can only hope that it leads to even more progress in the future.

Why Did Joe Biden Pardon All Americans Convicted Federally for Possession of Small Amounts of Marijuana?

According to the White House, Joe Biden pardoned all Americans convicted federally for possession of small amounts of marijuana. The reason for this pardon is that these convictions can have a lasting and harmful effect on an individual’s life, preventing them from getting jobs, housing, and education. This pardon will help those who have been convicted of minor marijuana offenses to get their lives back on track.

How Will The Utilizing of this Presidential Power Affect Whole Foods Market, Inc.?

Whole Foods Market, Inc. is an American supermarket chain headquartered in Austin, Texas. As of September 28, 2020, it had 467 stores in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

The news of President Joe Biden’s plan to grant clemency to nonviolent drug offenders, including those with past marijuana convictions, has many wondering how this will affect Whole Foods Market, Inc..

While the company does have a policy in place that prohibits employees from using or possessing cannabis while on the job, they have been known to be lenient with those who admit to using it recreationally. In fact, co-founder and CEO John Mackey has even openly admitted to trying cannabis himself.

So far, there has been no official word from Whole Foods Market, Inc. on how they will handle employees with past marijuana convictions if and when they are pardoned by President Biden. However, given their history of tolerance towards cannabis use, it’s likely that they will continue to be understanding and accommodating towards those affected by the president’s decision.


We hope that this pardon will pave the way for more progress on cannabis reform in the United States, and we will continue to fight until all Americans have safe and legal access to this life-changing plant.
