Gardner says Trump vows to protect marijuana industry

Sessions has been a staunch opponent of marijuana legalization throughout his political career

President donaldtrump has reportedly lent his support to a USA senator from Colorado, asserting to endorse legislation which "safeguards states' rights" on legalized bud.

Republican senator from Colorado on whether President Trump has the authority required to authorize a retaliatory strike on Assad regime, discusses Mike Pompeo's suitability to be secretary of state and potential agreement with the Trump administration to protect states' rights over the legalization of marijuana.

In January, Attorney General Jeff Sessions a reversed a Department of Justice policy known as the Cole Memo which ordered federal law enforcement not to go after legal marijuana businesses in states that had chosen to legalize so long as they followed their state's regulations.

Gardner was furious at Sessions for his move - and critics, like Gardner, argued the move violates states' rights and causes uncertainty in legal marijuana industries.

Trump told Gardner in a call late Wednesday that the cannabis industry in Colorado will not be targeted, the Senator announced Friday. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.

"Given that advertising marketing campaign, President Trump has continuously supported states' rights to resolve for themselves how best to technique marijuana", Gardner talked about. In a statement, Gardner said Sessions was going back on his word and he pledged to put a hold on all DOJ nominees "until the attorney general lives up to the commitment he made to me prior to his confirmation".

He added: "Furthermore, President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states' rights issue once and for all".

Gardner hopes to introduce bipartisan legislation keeping the federal government from interfering in state marijuana markets.

Though pure speculation, Trump may be looking for a public-relations boost while embroiled in the ongoing investigation by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign to Trump's benefit. "I'm a states particular person, it must be as a lot because the states, utterly", he suggested a television interviewer in Colorado that 12 months.

Within the meantime, legal guidelines to protect states the place marijuana is permitted stays to be being drafted.

When Trump selected Sessions, a former federal prosecutor and US senator from Alabama, as his attorney general, marijuana supporters girded for a crackdown. On Friday, he said he was fully releasing his holds on Department of Justice nominations.

By contrast, federal law defines the marijuana plant as a "Schedule I" prohibited substance that lacks "currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States".

Recently, Gardner and Justice officials have been in discussions for months to get the holds lifted. Sessions and also Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the official supervising the Russian Federation probe that has been the aim of the ire of Trump has been met with by Gardner. Trump's backing is seen as key to getting a bill by Congress.
