Not Enough To Be Tough

SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 By Bailey Hirschburg

No one personifies politicians change from eager drug warriors to cautious semi-reformers like Joseph “Joe” Biden. Elected to the U.S. Senate from Delaware in 1972, Biden stayed there until becoming vice president in 2009. Over more than 35 years of service, he has championed a whole generation of laws impacting, crime, drugs, and civil liberties.

With more than 10,000 votes cast in the Senate, Joe Biden offers a thick lineage of criminal justice positions. has an excellent summation of his many votes and positions. As ranking minority member, and later chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee and member of the Foreign Relations committee made Biden a nexus for drug laws for decades. For a senator well known to be long winded, you can bet nothing got through without Joe Biden speaking his piece.
