There's your money grab?

You have that backwards because there's no money to be had by VP Harris's comments/stance.

It's the legislature's job to decriminalize.

All Biden can do is sign an executive order to decriminalize and that just wouldn't be the right thing because it would take the pressure OFF the legislature.

Get your target clear, it's not Biden, it's the legislature. Don't waste your ammo on a false target even though it's an easy target. You can cut Biden to ribbons on this and all you have done is diminish his ability to help with other things we need. You play into the conservative/religious right's hand by doing this. I bet they are somehow behind this diversion to get us to pick on Biden when the problem is elsewhere, them. There's so much bad info out there designed to get us all pointing fingers in the wrong direction. Don't be fooled.
