(Indianapolis, IN) - Indiana’s Governor will not be as lenient with minor drug convictions as the President.
Earlier this month, the Biden administration announced pardons for thousands of Americans convicted of "simple possession" of marijuana under federal law.
This week, Governor Eric Holcomb announced that he will not follow suit.
Holcomb said, "The President should work with Congress, not around them, to discuss changes to the law federally." He says he plans to continue the state’s policy of working with minor drug offenders to clear their criminal records after they have served their punishments.
