“The truth of the matter is, there’s not nearly been enough evidence that has been acquired as to whether or not it is a gateway drug,” Biden said, according to Business Insider.
“It’s a debate, and I want a lot more before I legalize it nationally.
I want to make sure we know a lot more about the science behind it.”.
Biden, as he has throughout his time on the campaign trail, said he supports medical marijuana and insisted possession of the substance "should not be a crime.".
But he also said Saturday that he thinks the decision to legalize marijuana should be left up to individual states.
“States should be able to make a judgment to legalize marijuana,” he said at the town hall.
As for legalization on a federal level, Biden said more research is needed. »
