Because he will.
Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes since California voters made the first move in 1996. Voters in Colorado and Washington state took the next step last year and approved pot for recreational use. Alaska is likely to vote on the same question in 2014, and a few other states are expected to put recreational use on the ballot in 2016.
Nearly half of adults have tried marijuana, 12 percent of them in the past year, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. More teenagers now say they smoke marijuana than ordinary cigarettes.
Fifty-two percent of adults favor legalizing marijuana, up 11 percentage points just since 2010, according to Pew. Sixty percent think Washington shouldn’t enforce federal laws against marijuana in states that have approved its use. Seventy-two percent think government efforts to enforce marijuana laws cost more than they’re worth.
Joe Biden thinks that he can be President in 2016; he needs Obama’s supporters to swing to him in order to get the nomination; young people are generally more pro-pot than their elders; you do the math. That switching positions like this will invalidate everything that Joe Biden has ever said about drug use in the past is not really a concern for the Vice President; I mean, it’s not like Joe Biden ever actually believed in that stuff in the first place… or indeed anything else. Joke’s on the people who took the man at his word, really.

PS: I am agnostic on the subject of marijuana; then again, this post isn’t really about pot. It’s about me anticipating Joe Biden lying about pot.
