  • Inslee Ferguson cautiously optimistic after Trump’s ‘promise’ to protect states’ marijuana rights

Republican senator from Colorado on whether or not or not President Trump has the authority required to authorize a retaliatory strike on Assad regime, discusses Mike Pompeo's suitability to be secretary of state and potential settlement with the Trump administration to protect states' rights over the legalization of marijuana.

One of Gardner's primary points of contention with Sessions' decision to bring the hammer down on states with legal cannabis markets was his assurance during his confirmation hearings that he "would leave states that had legalized marijuana alone". "Late Wednesday, I received a commitment from the President that the Department of Justice's rescission of the Cole memo will not impact Colorado's legal marijuana industry".

Cory Gardner of Colorado announced Friday that Trump made the marijuana pledge to him in a Wednesday night conversation.

"Given that advertising marketing campaign, President Trump has continuously supported states' rights to resolve for themselves how best to technique marijuana", Gardner talked about.

Under Mr. Sessions's approach, USA attorneys in states where pot is legal were given approval to prosecute cases where they see fit.

Canadian and USA marijuana stocks are riding high on news that President Donald Trump will support congressional efforts to protect states that have legalized cannabis, which is illegal south of the border under federal law.

U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., addresses reporters, January 22, 2018.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Gardner's account was accurate and the president supported states' rights in the matter.




During the 2016 presidential campaign, candidate Trump said states should be able to decide their own marijuana policies. "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".

"We may now be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel", said Mason Tvert, who spearheaded a 2012 ballot measure legalizing recreational marijuana in Colorado.

In protest of the memo's repeal, Gardner began blocking Justice Department nominees.

Sessions once said he thought the Ku Klux Klan was "OK until I learned that they smoked pot", though he later claimed to be joking.

When Trump chosen Courses, a former federal prosecutor and USA senator from Alabama, as his lawyer fundamental, marijuana supporters girded for a crackdown. The reversal was immediately met with strong opposition from states' rights advocates, including Gardner, who believed that under Trump, states' cannabis laws would be respected. "Because of these commitments, I have informed the Administration that I will be lifting my remaining holds on Department of Justice nominees".

Inside his Friday statement, Gardner mentioned he'd released until he gained & ldquo; the full devotion that the guidelines of this Cole Memo wouldbe honored, a few holds, but abandoned others in place. Trump's backing is seen as key to getting a bill through Congress.
