Fox News host Laura Ingraham defined the agenda of the Democratic Party leading up to the midterm elections in her own words during her show Thursday.

"I want to describe the Left’s midterm agenda very simply," Ingraham began. "This is what they're going to give you more of if you elect them. Abortion, pot, porn, and more January 6th hearings. They’ve got nothing else."

Ingraham was referring to President Joe Biden "caving to the radical Left" when he announced that all federal offenses of marijuana use and possession were pardoned. The Fox News host noted it was 33 days before the midterm elections.

"No one should be in jail just for using or possessing marijuana," Biden said in his announcement. "It’s already legal in many states."

Conservative Political Action Coalition Chairman Matt Schlapp and the medical director of occupational health company Partners In Safety, Dr. Russell Kamer, were guests on the show at the time. Kamer admitted he approved of the pardons.

"I do want to say that President Biden and his pardoning of drug users, of marijuana users, I agree with him," Kamer told Ingraham. "No one should go to jail simply for smoking a joint. That’s ridiculous. And in fact, President Biden has been very anti-legalization. So, in those ways, he’s been very good on the topic."

Ingraham cited a report on marijuana addiction among teenagers, finding that the drug, now legal in some states, was just as addictive as opioids to those between the ages of 12 and 17. Schlapp seemed to agree with the host, claiming it was the beginning of a movement.

"This isn’t just about marijuana. It’s about a whole embrace of a drug culture, and if we care about people, that should guide what we do," Schlapp said. "The Democrats, once again, show it’s not about helping people. It’s about winning races."
