"Biden has no intention of extending cannabis pardons to help people jailed for selling it"

President Joe Biden, on Friday, the 21st of October, again touted his recent cannabis pardons proclamation but indicated that he has no intention of granting relief to people who are in prison for selling cannabis.

"I'm keeping my promise that no one should be in jail for merely using or possessing cannabis," he said. "None. And the records, which hold up people from being able to get jobs and the like, should be totally expunged. Totally expunged."

"You can't sell it," the president added. "But if it's just used, you're completely free."

The comments come as activists are planning a protest, including civil disobedience at the White House for Monday aimed at calling attention to those who are left behind by Biden's existing cannabis clemency action.
