Biden plays a unique role amidst tragedy

Biden is our national grief counselor

Speaking to those whoíve endured unimaginable loss, Biden said, ďFind a purpose, something that matters, particularly if itís something connected to the loss you just had. . . . I get up in the morning and I think to myself every morning, is [Beau] proud of me? Am I doing what he wants? And Iím sure that itís the same way with you and a whole lot of other people.Ē

He added that ďat a moment there will come a time when you think of the person you lost, and it takes a long while. But youíll get a smile before you get a tear, and thatís when you know youíre going to make it. And so many people have gone through what Iíve been through without the help I had.Ē

Often chided for gaffes, Biden, we see, can be downright profound when discussing loss. Wrapping up, he explained, ďSometimes itís really dark, but there is hope. And think about what it means for those family members you have left ó they need you. They need you. And look, folks, thatís why I think that it matters the stories of these people, for the public to understand that this is not just a statistic. This is ó this is who we are, who they are. I mean, itís a ó and it really is about, you know, sort of reweaving that social fabric that holds a society togetheró honesty, decency, hope, leaving nobody behind, giving hate no safe harbor.Ē

Joe Biden supports decriminalizing marijuana, stops short of calling for legalization

Here are Joe Biden's real positions on decriminalization of pot https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/16/politics/joe-biden-marijuana-decriminalization/index.html

Joe Biden supports decriminalizing marijuana, a Biden campaign spokesman told CNN, but the former vice president isn't going as far as calling for the drug to be legalized on the federal level.

"Nobody should be in jail for smoking marijuana," Biden told voters at a Tuesday house party in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Asked by CNN if the former vice president supports legalizing marijuana, Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesman, said Biden believes the drug should be decriminalized and that decisions on legalization should continue on the state level.

"As he said [Tuesday], Vice President Biden does not believe anyone should be in jail simply for smoking or possessing marijuana. He supports decriminalizing marijuana and automatically expunging prior criminal records for marijuana possession, so those affected don't have to figure out how to petition for it or pay for a lawyer," Bates said in a statement to CNN.
