Biden All Smiles With Upside-Down Ice Cream Cone And Marijuana Supporter

Vice President Joe Biden kept it cool and casual on Tuesday in Colorado, holding an ice cream cone upside down and posing for a photograph next to a man wearing a pro-marijuana T-shirt.

The photograph was tweeted by @BambuCycles, a self-described “eco-concept store specializing in hand built bamboo bicycles, organic raw foods, cold pressed juice & Happy Leaf Kombucha on tap,” according to its Twitter account.

The man in the photo, identified by Mediate as Angel Cruz, was wearing a shirt that seemingly advertising the High Times Cannabis Cup, a marijuana trade show.

Marijuana is legal in Colorado, but Biden has traditionally been an opponent of legalizing the drug.

The photograph also called into question how the Vice President holds his ice cream.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
