Colorado Senator Releases Statement On Marijuana Policy

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.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr. Gardner's statement is "accurate".

"Since the campaign, President Trump has consistently supported states' rights to decide for themselves how best to approach marijuana", Mr. Gardner said in a statement on Friday. I am cautiously optimistic that the president appears to have heard the will of the people on this issue.

But not everyone is convinced the president will stay true to his word. "Until there is a formal agreement protecting Washington's well-regulated marijuana industry, I will continue to stand ready to defend it", Ferguson said.

Before the exchange, he had been serving a 13-year prison term for leaking information to the British intelligence. Sir Mark also revealed the Skripals have been being spied on by Russian Federation for at least five years.

Gardner has been working with other Senators quietly about pushing for a legislative fix that would completely bar the federal government from interfering with states that have legalized marijuana or have voted to do so.

He designated Colorado, the very first nation allowing recreational bud sales. "This is one more step toward ending the irrational policy of marijuana prohibition, not only in Colorado but throughout the country".

Though pure speculation, Trump may be looking for a public-relations boost while embroiled in the ongoing investigation by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign to Trump's benefit. But Trump has also railed at the dangers of drug-related crime and suggested recreational marijuana should not be permitted.

When Trump chosen Courses, a former federal prosecutor and US senator from Alabama, as his lawyer fundamental, marijuana supporters girded for a crackdown. However, Gardner mentioned he had been promised by Sessions he'd do absolutely nothing to interfere with the robust bud market of Colorado.

On the night of April 11, 2018, Trump and Gardner had a telephone conversation in which the president contradicted the Sessions memo, telling the senator from Colorado - where marijuana has been legalized for adult-use since 2014 - would not be subjected to a federal crackdown on cannabis.

Gardner stated he had been blindsided when his announcement was left by Sessions in January with regards to bud prosecutions.

Department leaders have "shown in good faith their willingness to provide what I think will be hopefully the protections we sought, and as sort of a good faith gesture on my behalf I'll be releasing a limited number of nominees", Gardner told The Associated Press on Friday. Trump's backing is seen as key to getting a bill through Congress. Gardner has met with Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the official overseeing the Russian Federation probe who has been the target of Trump's ire.

Gardner said he had lifted some holds earlier this year after "positive discussions with the DOJ" but that with Trump's assurances, he would be lifting all remaining ones.
