Trump Assures Senator That He Supports Federalism-Based Cannabis Policy

Trump and Colorado Senator Come to Agreement on Protection of Legalized Marijuana States Trump Assures Senator That He Supports Federalism-Based Cannabis Policy
Bennie Garza | 14 April, 2018, 05:49

Now, in a statement, he says Trump has promised him the Justice Department's new policy wouldn't impact Colorado.

According to White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short, Trump "does respect Colorado's right to decide for themselves how to best approach this issue".

In exchange, Gardner said he has agreed to lift his remaining holds on Justice Department nominees.

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".

This story is developing and will be updated.

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. But "it's a good and better tone" from the federal government that state governments like Arizona's should acknowledge, he said.

Trump's agreement on cannabis comes in the same week that former Speaker of the House John Boehner, a Republican who has long opposed legalization, announced he was joining the advisory board of Acreage Holdings, a cannabis investment firm.

In response to the administration's pledge, NORML Director Erik Altieri stated: "We applaud this commitment from President Trump, who promised during his campaign to take a federalist approach with regard to marijuana policy".

U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) speaks at a town hall meeting in Lakewood, Colorado, U.S., August 15, 2017.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado said Friday that Trump made the pledge to him in a Wednesday night conversation.

"With the President now reiterating this commitment, it is time for Congress to do its part and swiftly move forward bipartisan legislation that explicitly provides states with the authority and autonomy to set their own marijuana policies absent the fear of federal incursion.

We must continue to work towards the day that NY rejects the deeply flawed policies of the past, embraces sensible reform and passes the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act".

It may be modeled on a 2014 budget amendment that prevented the Department of Justice from spending money to enforce federal laws against marijuana users and businesses in states that legalized the drug and were following all applicable state laws. "I think that all of those things work together to protect public health and safety, but we have a provision now in our constitution, and we have statutes that carry this out, and we have regulations in our agencies".

The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act is now being considered by the New York State legislature.

Such a bill has not been drafted or passed.
