During a Friday morning interview on popular radio show "The Breakfast Club," presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden called for the decriminalization of all drugs.


Biden said:

"No one should be going to jail for drug crime, period. Nobody. Nobody. No matter what the crime. Particularly marijuana, which makes no sense for people to go to jail. They should be just wiped out completely."

🔦 Decriminalization, as opposed to legalization, removes incarceration but does not preclude permits or fines from still being imposed on the use of certain drugs.

Former Democratic 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg also previously called for decriminalization of all drugs.
