    2:04 “Blafican American”. Joe Biden – 2019

  3. If he’s so concerned that he wants long term studies he should look at the long term studies around alcohol. You know, that substance glorified in all media, by kids parents on the weekends and by institutions for the poor and rich, that kills 88,000 people a year just in record in this country.

    • Diana Strange, no they are not the same. Neither is Heroin which happens to be in the category of alcohol…addicting!

    • @Victor Great goal changing.

    • Illegalize alcohol tobacco and cannabis in all 50 states. It’s obvious.

      Even compared to heroin (the official “worst drug”) alcohol still looks terrible. Alcohol is implicated in something like half of all murders, car crash fatalities, and maybe more than half of assaults. Those who become addicted to alcohol face the slow but sure deterioration of their livers and other internal organs, leading to a prolonged, grisly, painful death years before their time.
      Heroin use, as long as done with sterile needles (or taken by mouth) doesn’t cause any tissue damage at all. The biggest risk, overdose, all but disappears if the user has access to good quality heroin of known dosage strength.
      In other words, it’s heroin’s illegality that makes it dangerous at all.
      Physiologically, heroin is no different than morphine. People can and do use morphine multiple times per day for decades without suffering any ill effects beyond, possibly, constipation.

  4. A Black education is not the same as being Black uncle Joe

  5. BIDEN SHOULD SMOKE POT IT WOULD HELP HIS ATTITUDE

  6. Guy in the back on Obama coalition: “That’s a corporation!”

  7. Boring—bad topics—-MSNBC is awful and bias!!!!!!!!

  8. Why worry about that green grass when half of the Americans are dying because of prescription drugs🙄

    • @Everblue Freediving ruining lives and families, one of government’s ways of keeping people down and making money off them, (court fees, fines, jails for money)

      @Ross Malagarienot really… cities, towns, and states have been in open rebellion against the Federal gov since the 80s w decrim, adult use zones, etc…. I was an activist and helped set up the first medical buyers club in Oakland in 1995. We had the blessing of the entire city council and the protection of the Oakland police department. Jeff Jones and attorney Rob Raisch took the matter to the Supreme court…. opposition came from GOP sociopaths trying to trigger fear and bury the sorry history and lies around prohibition, w big help from police and DEA trying to protect funding and jobs….. even here in Hawaii the cops support prohibition because, if it ends, they lose federal money and jobs. Its not about doing the right thing, it never is…. and that is simply corruption, pure and simple.
      Fact is that there is so much weed growing here that the local market price per oz is 125-150 for top shelf and that is a fixed price, I have seen it as low as 60…. so they want it illegal but wont bust their own families and local gangs… if it isnt burning in your car ash tray and you arent 16yrs old you arent likely to have a problem….8

      @Everblue Freediving I hear what you’re saying and agree. That’s basically what I was saying that the government is behind, not doing the right thing for its people, but after making money off it. I think we are pretty much saying the same thing just with different examples.

    • Everblue Freediving | November 21, 2019 at 3:40 PM | Reply

      @Ross Malagarie yes, its just a matter of perspective (takes a pull of Blue Dream and rosin off pipe), and a lot of politicians, cops, and influence peddlers self-dealing instead of serving the people. Biden was always that guy. Pushing fear, avoiding education and knowledge, for that endorsement from law enforcement… pandering… (breaks out into a coughing fit)…

      You think half of American deaths are due to prescription drugs?

  9. Old Reefer Madness Joe Biden.. He’s just one of those old guys from an age that doesn’t exist anymore in America. MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION WILL GET YOU ELECTED!!!!

  10. Biden will not win the election with these old school views. Booker is right everybody knows marijuana is better than using ibuprofen because at least you don’t get sores in your stomach. And not to mention the benefits it has for mental health. It’s crazy they rather have people on Zanex than something natural that won’t cause you to have more issues later.

      Well said! This country is slowly coming around with pot. The medicinal benefits are well documented. Heck, they even put some kids on the CBD oil extracts and they’ve been shown to help with all kinds of ailments that they have. Autism being 1 of them.

  11. Cory “sparticus” booker has serious crazy eyes.

  12. Blafrican American…is that a thing?

  13. Joe sure flipped the script from his archaic comment the other day about weed being a gateway drug

  14. Better high than clueless. Wasn’t planning to vote for Biden anyway, but that puts the idea of doing so in never-never land.

  15. Grandpa needs to stop trying to be president.

  16. Jason McDonald | November 21, 2019 at 1:50 PM | Reply

    He just threw his chances way like that!

  17. I get his reason to wait and test it first, but I can’t wait. LEGALIZE IT!

  18. Biden:

    Biden to himself: im boutta end this mans whole career.

  19. biden is a mess , forgetful, loosing his cells by the second. and stuck in way back machine.
