Drake, Meek Mill, 2Pac's Brother + Many Star Rappers Call On Joe Biden For Marijuana Reform

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marijuana reform is a huge

issue of focus when it comes to legal reform in the

United States. With millions serving hefty sentences

on drug charges, Drake, Meek Mill and numerous

other superstar rappers and athletes are joining

forces to get Washington D.C.’s attention for reform.

 

According to sources, a letter was sent to The White

House addressing President Biden on Tuesday

(September 14) calling for the pardon of all non-

violent cannabis offenders currently locked up in

prisons across the country.

 

Other rappers supporting the bill include Killer Mike,

Ty Dolla $ign, Quavo, Kodak Black, Dave East, T.I.

and 2 Chainz while the athlete side finds a push from

NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, Stephen Jackson,

Kevin Garnett, Al Harrington, J.R. Smith, Julio Jones

and John Wall.

 

“Whatever one thinks of other drugs and other

defendants, incarcerating marijuana offenders in

federal prisons is a misuse of our nation’s resources

and grossly hypocritical, given that a clear majority of

Americans oppose marijuana prohibition and about

half admit to using the drug during their lifetime,” the

letter reads.

 

“It also stands against the arc of history and the

principle of federalism: nearly three-quarters of the

states have now abandoned the federal government’s

blanket criminal ban in favor of safe, regulated legal

access to marijuana for adults and/or those with

qualifying medical conditions.”

 

Meek Mill has been hard at work when it comes to

making a positive change in the legal system with his

REFORM Alliance which recently changed probation

laws in Virginia this summer. With these new

reforms countless convictions will be overturned

however these reforms will not impact the lives that

have been affected by these strict marijuana laws. So

many lives have been altered or even in some cases

been destroyed.
