At least Joe handed out more than just paper towels.

Biden’s trip to Puerto Rico rekindles memories of Trump’s.

...There were 10-pound sacks of yellow onions, garlic, boxed juice, rice, nuts, ground corn, and cases of bottled water — all to distribute to victims of Hurricane Fiona, which had battered the island two weeks ago. Volunteers, including first lady Jill Biden, packed the supplies into large, white plastic bags, tied them up and added them to a growing pile...
Very much better than just paper towels.

Statement from President Biden on Marijuana Reform

First, I am announcing a pardon of all prior Federal offenses of simple possession of marijuana. I have directed the Attorney General to develop an administrative process for the issuance of certificates of pardon to eligible individuals. There are thousands of people who have prior Federal convictions for marijuana possession, who may be denied employment, housing, or educational opportunities as a result. My action will help relieve the collateral consequences arising from these convictions.

Second, I am urging all Governors to do the same with regard to state offenses. Just as no one should be in a Federal prison solely due to the possession of marijuana, no one should be in a local jail or state prison for that reason, either.

Third, I am asking the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Attorney General to initiate the administrative process to review expeditiously how marijuana is scheduled under federal law. Federal law currently classifies marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, the classification meant for the most dangerous substances. This is the same schedule as for heroin and LSD, and even higher than the classification of fentanyl and methamphetamine – the drugs that are driving our overdose epidemic.


Finally...

I am not much into THC as it gives me severe anxiety, so I avoid getting high, but CBD has been very helpful with my lifelong moderate depression/anxiety/insomnia (the latter was a happy accident when I tried it for the other two.) Unlike SSRIs, no unwanted side effects. So I'm glad it was realized it has enough legitimate use (ie the epileptic children) and is now generally available.

You are fortunate you didn't give into nicotine. I was addicted for a quarter century. I also started at sixteen but I had basically zero willpower then, so it was hopeless quitting it.

Congrats on quitting.

There's nothing like a bit of herbal medicine. ;-)
