Published 1 hour ago Getty Images President Joe Biden is issuing an executive order pardoning all Americans who have been federally convicted of "simple possession of marijuana". The move will only affect a relatively small number of marijuana convictions since most occur at the state level. Mr Biden's announcement stops short of a full decriminalisation of cannabis, which he promised as a presidential candidate.
