Colorado marijuana federal legalization: Donald Trump would "probably" support Cory Gardner's bill

"I know exactly what he's doing", Trump told reporters in Washington, AP reported.

New Hampshire has a medical marijuana law, enacted in 2013, but state lawmakers have rejected numerous efforts to legalize recreational marijuana for adults.

The bill, known as the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States Act, or STATES Act, has also garnered support in the House from Reps. This won him a phone call with the president, who reportedly promised to support legislation protecting states that have legalized marijuana from federal crackdowns. In Massachusetts, retail pot shops are scheduled to open July 1. Under federal law, marijuana is equated with heroin and LSD.

The bill is the indirect result of the decision by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions in January to rescind Obama-era guidance that had protected most state-legal marijuana activity from federal prosecution.

"While we look forward to the day when there is full acceptance of cannabis at the federal level, we heartily embrace the states' rights approach proposed by this bill", Don Murphy, conservative outreach director for the Marijuana Policy Project, said in a statement. However, with Republicans in control of Congress and Trump in the White House, legislation that leaves marijuana legalization up to the states has the best chance of gaining traction - and furthering the divide between the president and his attorney general.

Gardner said the legislation would ensure Washington respects the will of voters in each state, whether laws provide for legalization or prohibition. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Trump said, "I support Sen". The senator opposed legalization at the time but has since defended Colorado's legal marijuana industry from federal meddling. "But I probably will end up supporting that".

In Ohio, medical marijuana is legal (although the program is not up and running yet), and there's an effort afoot to also legalize recreational marijuana.

The bill would make the federal Controlled Substances Act not applicable in marijuana cases where someone is acting within the laws of their state. This would protect both businesses and individual users, as long as they follow state rules around marijuana use and distribution. Elizabeth Warren of MA, said in a statement that Washington 'needs to get out of the business of outlawing marijuana'.

The bill by Gardner and Warren would give states the right to determine their own approach to regulating marijuana.

The National Conference of State Legislatures came out in support of the Warren/Gardner bill on Thursday.

Because of that, marijuana companies have several financial obstacles, including the inability to use banks.
