      Warren, a leader in fighting for student-loan reforms and forgiveness and for decriminalizing marijuana, spoke to Pod Save America on Thursday explaining how the two issues are connected. She said that student debt has “a powerful racial justice issue to it,” because it disproportionately impacts Black borrowers, and the issue is the same for marijuana offenses: there are racial disparities in the enforcement of cannabis laws.

      “What’s your best resource as a nation? It’s your people,” Warren said. “These people who should be part of our economy, part of our society.”

      Warren called on Biden to use his executive powers to cancel student debt and legalize marijuana, saying it would be “the single best opportunity for the President of the United States to help close the Black/white wealth gap.”

      “So there you are, Joe Biden,” she said. “Two things you can do for our economy, for racial justice. We just need your signature on two different pieces of paper.”

      Besides student loans are backed by the government. The banks can’t lose, no matter what. Privatize the wins, socialize the losses.
