Trump Says He 'Really' Supports Allowing States To Legalize Cannabis

Trump was asked about The STATES Act introduced by Sens.

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - Thursday, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Cory Gardner (R-CO) introduced legislation that would let states regulate marijuana, free from federal interference.

Sen. Yuen Pau Woo, leader of the independent senators' group, said one had only to look at the amendments proposed by the independents - including the home cultivation one - to know the Tory accusations of partisanship aren't true. "I think he'll find out soon from. victims of marijuana addiction and impaired driving that this is not as popular as Cory Gardner is leading him to believe".

Trump suggested Friday he could get behind it, telling reporters, "We're looking at it".

As great a mover and defender as Halep is, she could be left powerless if Muguruza is at her imposing best. Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys meet in the second semi-final in a rematch of last year's US Open final.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who once said he smoked a joint "five or six times", has supported the bill's passage after pledging to legalize recreational marijuana during the 2015 parliamentary elections.

The federal ban that puts marijuana on the same level as LSD and heroin has created a conflict with more than two dozen states that have legalized pot in some form.

Gardner says the bill will protect public safety by giving legitimate marijuana businesses acccess to banking.

But many marijuana rights' activists praised the STATES Act for its social justice components.

Giuliani says Stormy Daniels has ‘no reputation,’ affair not credible
In fact, the first lady has never spoken publically about her husband's alleged affair. But he also admitted he hasn't "interviewed" the first lady on the subject.

Bud Scott, president of the trade group New Health Solutions Oklahoma, said the president's comments make medical marijuana look like a more solid investment. Just before the summit convened near Quebec City, that nation's Senate passed a long-awaited bill to legalize recreational marijuana. The letter stresses that the "will of the people as expressed through ballot initiatives and legislative action" has led to 46 states with medical marijuana and nine states with adult use of the drug. But if you're in the business, if you work for the business you can't get a bank loan or set up a bank account because of the concern over the conflict between the state and federal law.

And as a reminder, under federal law right now marijuana is a Schedule I substance. The senate, however, added almost four dozen amendments, meaning the legislation will now return to the House of Commons for consideration.

"We have a government that had the will to try to bring a sophisticated, complex approach to a complex policy challenge", Dean said in an interview.

Industry officials also have told Marijuana Business Daily over the past few months that Trump's assurances don't mean much because he changes his mind so often and further note that Sessions and the Justice Department operate independently of the White House. The STATES Act is the product of that effort.
