U.S. Senate candidate and Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman is calling on President Joe Biden to make good on a campaign promise for marijuana reform - an issue he plans to raise with him in person at a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh next week. The president has received more than a dozen letters from lawmakers, advocates, celebrities and people affected by criminal convictions demanding action against people who remain in federal prisons because of marijuana. Last month, six senators, including Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Cory Booker (D-NJ), sent a letter to Biden expressing their frustration with the administration's "failure" to substantively address the dangers of marijuana convictions and use executive clemency powers to change course. They said the administration's current stance is "hurting thousands of Americans, slowing research and denying Americans the ability to use marijuana for medical or other purposes."
