Trump signals willingness to back bill easing pot regulation

Trump signals willingness to back bill easing pot regulation”

He said he supports it now and will "probably" support it going forward. The legislation would allow states to pursue liberalized marijuana policies as they see fit, they said. "I will again sponsor a tax and regulate legalization model in the next session".

But while many marijuana policy groups lauded the senators' "Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States", or STATES Act, at least one raised concerns that it doesn't go far enough.

New Hampshire has a commission charged with studying marijuana legalization, regulation, and taxation.

The department has moved to crack down on the laws to decriminalize and legalize marijuana. In Massachusetts, retail pot shops are scheduled to open July 1.

However even as states legalize, marijuana has remained a hazardous and unstable business because of the federal law making it illegal. fears about federal law enforcement seizures have inhibited most lenders from working with marijuana businesses.

In January, Sessions rescinded Obama-era guidance that urged federal prosecutors to refrain from targeting state-legal marijuana operations.

"My legislation is in line with what President Trump said on the campaign and what he and I have discussed several times since he was elected", Gardner said in a statement Friday. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) would allow USA states to individually pursue marijuana legalization without the threat of federal enforcement action.

Co-sponsored by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. "We're looking at it, but I probably will end up supporting that, yes". A total of 29 states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes.

Sessions has also said he believes that the marijuana legalization movement is a serious contributing factor in the country's opioid crisis and overdose deaths.

When Trump was asked if he supports Gardner's "marijuana federalism bill", he replied: "I really do". Legal recreational marijuana has been approved in nine states and Washington, D.C., which continues to ban sales, unlike the state programs.

"States like MA have put a lot of work into implementing commonsense marijuana regulations-and they have the right to enforce their own marijuana policies", Warren said.

"Thanks to the Attorney General, more people feel the urgency of the moment in changing federal law on marijuana", Warren said.

Gardner, meanwhile, discussed those conversations in a news conference.

For years, major banks and other financial institutions have refused to open accounts for legal marijuana growers and retailers due to federal prohibition, forcing entrepreneurs to do business with large amounts of cash. One amendment would allow provinces to prohibit home cultivation of cannabis if they so choose, rather than accept the four marijuana plants per dwelling allowed under the bill.
