Will President End Federal Ban On Pot?

Many states across the country are in the process of legalizing medical or recreational marijuana despite the drug remaining banned at the federal level.

President Donald Trump has been contacted by many Senators regarding marijuana legalization and the states’ rights issues associated with it.  It seems their lobbying may be working

From Brietbart:

“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.”

It’s an interesting angle for the President to play.

While the move could score him political points it also makes sense as many states have already made the drug legal in certain circumstances.

President Trump has drawn a hard line against illegal drugs and drug dealers in the first year of his Presidency. Even if the President were to support lifting the ban he’s in no way is advocating for widespread use, as Trump himself doesn’t even drink.

  1. It’s really not up to the President is it ? He cannot just issue an Executive Order. And even if he could, the next President could rescind it. That’s why there needs to be legislation on these issues and not just temporary bandaids.

  2. It is both silly and schizophrenic for the Federal government to continue to classify marijuana as a Scheduled Drug equal with those strictly chemical concoctions which are Deadly, and highly Addictive. Pot is neither of those things. Too many are still in Congress remembering “Reefer Madness” and other These are outdated, totally incorrect representations that date back to the 1920’s. We are all aware that it has numerous medicinal uses, and many are already self-medicating with it, rather than chemicals prescribed by doctors with the encouragement of Big Pharma. Putting users in jail or prison is ineffective, expensive, and damages forever, those individuals who are convicted of smoking, growing, or even selling small quantities to friends who are out. PLEASE, President Trump, re-classify the Drug, and allow the STATES to have the Laws that their people want. The “War on Drugs” has been an abysmal and dollar consuming waste of time. Like smokers, drinkers, and those who use any product, you cannot make them stop, regardless of laws. They must make those decisions as to what they ingest, for themselves. Pot has a lot fewer bad effects, than alcohol, which has absolutely ruined families and individuals.

  3. We don’t need more zombies walking around we already have enough SNOWFLAKES that have been brainwashed by overpaid professors. Sitting in those classes the majority have been awarded a useless degree and MAJOR STUDENT LOANS. POT is an avenue that can lead to MAJOR ADDICTIONS.
