Horowitz: Who exactly are the marijuana offenders Biden just pardoned?

Unless you were in the Capitol on Jan. 6, federal prosecutors are not aiming to jail you for mere possession of marijuana. In fact, in this era of marijuana as a national pastime, you won’t find anyone originally targeted by prosecutors for nothing more than simple possession to serve time in prison. So if Biden makes a grand Notice When he pardons those convicted of simple possession, you know there’s more to it than meets the eye.

“I announce a pardon for all previous federal offenses of simple possession of marijuana. There are thousands of people convicted of possessing marijuana who may be denied work, housing or educational opportunities as a result,” Biden said in a video last Thursday. “My pardon will relieve them of that burden.”

Thousands of people are being denied job opportunities? Ask yourself this question: In an era of free drug markets visible in most major cities, what kind of federal prosecutor invests the time and money prosecuting someone for simple possession of marijuana? The answer is that they are not. So who’s in federal prison for simple marijuana possession? Obviously people who probably had much more serious allegations but were citing marijuana possession. If Biden is indeed correct in claiming that these people are such low-level criminals, then why not push for the unsealing of their sentencing reports, which would contain their entire criminal history?

But it’s not just the fact that if these people are targeted by the FBI, they’re likely to be much more serious offenders (unless they’re conservatives). Why would anyone even be in the federal marijuana system, especially at this time? Because they are foreigners! Corresponding Data compiled by the US Sentencing Commission, in FY 2013 (before the total demise of border enforcement), nearly 91% of all state marijuana offenders in the system were non-citizens! 91.5% of them were arrested at or near the border!

What this demonstrates is that it wasn’t about the US Marshals picking up random people in cities to smoke a joint. These were hardened cartel dealers who import not only marijuana but also some of the other deadly drugs responsible for wiping out tens of thousands of young Americans. It is simply scandalous that Biden does not disclose the nature of these arrests and the identity of the individuals.

Furthermore, even if one somehow believes that these are lower level criminals and that there is no reason we should be holding them in our prisons, then at least they should be returned to their home countries. However, the Biden administration failed to mention the fact that over 90% of them would make it out of prison and into ICE custody. They will probably all be freed. In other words, tons of cartel dealers will be released into our general population!

Earlier this week, CNN did so confirm that the pardon “does not apply to persons who were not citizens and lawful residents of the United States at the time of their offense.” But then they quote “a senior administration official” who suggested this “Anyone who committed this offense could not be prosecuted federally for that conduct at this time.” In other words, this is an open invitation to the cartel dealers.

So the next time you agree with the Biden administration to stop the federal crackdown on average Americans who smoke a joint, just understand that these are not the people who will benefit from the order. It’s a gift to the cartels that flood our country with criminals, illegal aliens and drugs.
