Democrat Joe Biden’s administration has shamed, humiliated, and fired the pot smokers at the White House, who believed they would be allowed to keep their jobs, even after Biden’s own son Hunter Biden has admitted to an addiction to crack cocaine, surprising some of Biden’s top supporters.
“Dozens of young White House staffers have been suspended, asked to resign, or placed in a remote work program due to past marijuana use, frustrating staffers who were pleased by initial indications from the Biden administration that recreational use of cannabis would not be immediately disqualifying for would-be personnel, according to three people familiar with the situation, “The Daily Beast reported, breaking the story.
Even after rabidly supporting Democrat Biden for years, the Daily Beast appears to be upset and surprised by the Democrats power play and dominance, reporting:
“The policy has even affected staffers whose marijuana use was exclusive to one of the 14 states—and the District of Columbia—where cannabis is legal. Sources familiar with the matter also said a number of young staffers were either put on probation or canned because they revealed past marijuana use in an official document they filled out as part of the lengthy background check for a position in the Biden White House.”
“In some cases, staffers were informally told by transition higher-ups ahead of formally joining the administration that they would likely overlook some past marijuana use, only to be asked later to resign,” they reported.
“There were one-on-one calls with individual affected staffers—rather, ex-staffers,” one former White House staffer affected by the policy told The Daily Beast. “I was asked to resign.”

What could possibly be causing this unjust and unfair treatment after promises that the administration would be cool about staffers using pot? Especially since DC is getting ready to make a lot of money selling and promoting legal pot use in DC.
BIG TROUBLE COMING, RIGHT?
“The majority of the members of Congress truly support cannabis,” said Linda Mercado Greene, founder and owner of Anacostia Organics, a District dispensary.
DEMOCRATS HOPE UP IN FIRE? OR ARE DEMOCRATS DESTROYING THEIR FUTURE EMPLOYMENT?
What a confusing situation? If DC makes it easier to get and smoke pot, what is that doing to their opportunities of people in DC to work at the White House with Democrats? Will the “no pot” rule go for the entire administration, and for all civil servants under Biden? What is going on?
Recent news by mjbizdaily:
“Washington DC’s long-stalled recreational cannabis market could get a new lease on life now that Democrats control both chambers of Congress, a development that could generate more than $200 million in annual sales for local marijuana retailers in a few years.
The new regulator – the District’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulatory Agency (ABRA) – has taken steps to boost medical marijuana patient counts and make it easier for companies to operate.
The ABRA also would likely play a key part in rolling out a new recreational program.
Voters approved recreational cannabis seven years ago.
With Democrats now in control of Congress, recreational sales could begin in roughly one year, one local industry executive predicted.
“I think it’s very possible that we could see sales by the end of 2021,” said Adam Goers, vice president of corporate affairs at Columbia Care, a New York-based multistate operator with a cultivation site in the District, plus a dispensary that operates as Capital City Care.
“The worst case is that we’re seeing it sometime in early 2022.”
So who is going to work at the White House?
This story should develop into a long strange trip..
