Trump on Marijuana: “I Probably Will End up Supporting” End to Federal Ban

H/T Breitbart California. Marijuana should be legal and taxed like tobacco. President Donald Trump told a gaggle of reporters Friday that he will “probably” support efforts by Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) to end the federal ban on marijuana in states that have legalized it. “I support Sen. Gardner,” the president said before departing for the G-7 summit in Canada, as quoted by the Los Angeles Times. “I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.”

President Trump has taken a hard line against drugs. In March, he proposed that the death penalty be made available in prosecutions of drug traffickers.

Earlier this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed an Obama-era policy of not enforcing the federal marijuana ban in states that had voted to legalize the drug for medicinal or recreational use, allowing federal prosecutors in each state to use their own discretion.

In response to that decision, Garnder threatened to hold up future nominations for positions in the Department of Justice. He backed down after he said Trump had agreednot to intervene in states that had legalized the drug, and said privately that he would support Garnder’s legislation.

Friday’s statement, however, was the first time Trump had made that support public. . .

  1. Marijuana is not for everyone. People should not be locked up over it. If trump fired sessions, it would improve his image and, hopefully his outlook.

  2. Murican press and the internet, so full of shit. This is virtually, a totalitarian police state, where half the people live in poverty. Everything on tv or the internet, are the most extreme whopping lies possible. Many christian dipshits eat it up.

    The 30 percent, that are somewhat middle class, are miserable. The top 20 percent just bully the shit out of everyone and exloit everything.

    Last week Trump had a 26 percent approval rating, this week it is 54%. What crock of horseshit. 54% of the total, real-population is at or below poverty level with no medical coverage, they can still get gasoline and junkfood cheaper than other shithole countries, but not much else.
    If fuko does decriminalize the stinky weed for stupids, it might slow down the inarceration nation a little, but not much.
