It reinforces his position as a centrist. 85% of the country doesn’t smoke pot, and though that percentage is probably considerably lower among Democrats, Biden’s lane is mainly moderate/elderly/black and would tend to be supportive of Biden’s position. The stoners are mainly going to line up behind Bernie or Liz.
Part of me wants to agree with you but the other part of me sees elephants dancing on the lawn.
