President Trump Expresses Support For Bipartisan Marijuana Fix

09 Juin, 2018, 17:18 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

President Donald Trump has signaled support for legislation easing federal intervention in states with legalized marijuana, Gardner said.

The bill would exempt states that have legalized marijuana from the section of the Controlled Substances Act that prohibits cannabis use and lists the drug as a unsafe substance with no medical value. "But I probably will end up supporting that". Gardner", Trump said. "I know exactly what he's doing. "States like MA have put a lot of work into implementing common sense marijuana regulations - and they have the right to enforce their own marijuana policies". Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of MA.

Marijuana has been fully legalized in eight states, with 24 states allowing some form of use.

In January, Attorney General Jeff Sessions removed prohibitions that kept federal prosecutors from pursuing cases against people who were following pot laws in states like Colorado and MA that have legalized the drug.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY introduced a bill on the marijuana holiday 4/20 - a reference to the police code for pot use, which is "420" - that would remove marijuana entirely from the list of Schedule One drugs that legally classifies marijuana as risky as heroin, LSD and ecstasy. And his office echoed that today when HuffPost reached out for comment.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has criticized Gardner, whose state was the first to legalize marijuana, for his support for permissive marijuana laws.

It started in January when U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled back an Obama-era policy that generally left alone states that sanctioned marijuana, which is illegal under federal law.

Some banks have been wary to offer services to pot businesses even in states where the substance is legal due to the federal prohibition.

Canada's senate has voted to legalise recreational marijuana, clearing a major hurdle as the country moves towards becoming the first in the G7 to fully legalise the drug.

According to the sponsors, the bill looks to amend the Controlled Substances Act so it no longer applies to any person acting in compliance with state or tribal laws when it comes to manufacturing, producing, possessing, distributing, dispensing, administering or delivering marijuana - as long as states and tribes comply with a few basic protections. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., hold a press conference in the Senate Radio and TV Gallery to discuss bipartisan action they are taking to put marijuana legislation into the hands of state lawmakers Thursday, June 7, 2018. The legislation would ensure that states have the right to determine the best approach to marijuana within their borders, while preserving restrictions on such things as recreational sales to people under 21. "Not putting words in the mouth of the White House, but I think this will be an opportunity for us to fulfill what is that federalism approach".

The more modest Warren and Gardner bill seems more likely to pass Congress due to its emphasis on states' rights, which appeals to the conservatives that control both chambers, experts said.
