  • Trump says he will back congressional efforts to protect states' rights to legal marijuana

Gardner was angered in January when Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, revoked the Obama-era Cole memo that discouraged the federal government from interfering with states that had legalized marijuana. "This is one more step toward ending the irrational policy of marijuana prohibition, not only in Colorado but throughout the country". Ron Wyden of OR, a Democrat, wrote on Twitter.

Trump says he will back congressional efforts to protect states' rights to legal marijuana.

During the campaign, Trump said states should be able to chart their own course on marijuana. "I'm a states particular person, it must be as a lot because the states, utterly", he suggested a television interviewer in Colorado that 12 months.

However, per year early in the day at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) in Maryland, Trump had claimed he supported medical bud but predicted injectable bud "bad". "They've quite a few points occurring correct now in Colorado - some massive points", Trump talked about then.

Bob Ferguson, the Democratic attorney general of Washington state, which permits marijuana use, said Gardner's announcement made him "cautiously optimistic" but until there is a formal agreement or law on the issue he stands ready to defend "Washington's well-regulated marijuana industry".

After Trump selected Sessions, a former federal prosecutor and also USA senator from Alabama, as his attorney general, bud fans girded for a crackdown.

"Because of these commitments, I have informed the Administration that I will be lifting my remaining holds on Department of Justice nominees", Gardner said. On Friday, he said he was fully releasing his holds on Department of Justice nominations.

President Donald Trump has signaled to Sen.

In a conversation between the president and the senator, Trump reportedly assured Gardner that he would support legislation to allow states to legalize cannabis without fear of prosecution from federal law enforcement so long as Gardner would not block nominations for positions which have yet to be filled at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

A bill has not been finalized, but Gardner has been talking quietly with other senators about a legislative fix that would, in effect, make clear that the federal government can not interfere with states that have voted to legalize marijuana. After positive discussions with DOJ, Gardner lifted some of his holds but kept the rest in place until he received a full commitment that the guidelines of the Cole Memo would be respected.

Gardner's office is hopeful of getting enough bipartisan support for the bill to pass the GOP-controlled Congress - something the president's backing would aid.

President Trump was reportedly so enraged by an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of his personal attorney's office and hotel that he is now on the brink of firing Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general he appointed, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
