Donald Trump supports plans to make weed completely legal

Canada closer to legalising marijuana after senate vote in favour

They have wide bipartisan support for the bill and Gardner says President Donald Trump is also on board. This won him a phone call with the president, who reportedly promised to support legislation protecting states that have legalized marijuana from federal crackdowns.

The senators say they have bipartisan support in the Senate and the House of Representatives for the bill.

"The two of us", Warren said emphatically, as Gardner chuckled. "We're looking at it, but we'll probably end up supporting that, yes". "But I probably will end up supporting that, yes".

If Trump signs the bill into law, the legislation would resolve that conflict between the state and federal marijuana laws.

Investment from the United States, where recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia, has been pouring into Canada ahead of expected legalization.

Ever since Donald Trump took office as 45th president of the United States, cannabis industry entrepreneurs, as well as ordinary cannabis users, have anxious that the Trump administration might punish them for buying, selling, growing, or using marijuana. The bill, which amends portions of the Controlled Substances Act, also states that buying or selling pot will not be considering drug trafficking. Gardner described marijuana legalization as a matter of states' rights.

Bud Scott, president of the trade group New Health Solutions Oklahoma, said the president's comments make medical marijuana look like a more solid investment.

Conservative suspicions were further fuelled by the fact that two senators appointed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday were sworn in Thursday in time to vote for the bill - something Conservative Sen.

"Instead, it allows the principle of federalism to prevail as the founding fathers intended and leaves the marijuana question up to the states", Mr. Gardner said in a Twitter post on Thursday.

Trump's support of a lift on the ban would bring in regulation of marijuana sales, and also allow scientists to pursue medical resrarch into its uses. Under federal law, marijuana is equated with heroin and LSD.

Ottawa's initial plan was to let the courts decide whether or not federal legislation would trump the provincial law in Quebec and Manitoba in terms of home cultivation.

Canada would be the first member of the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized countries to legalize marijuana for personal use.

"President Trump made a commitment to Senator Gardner that he would support a federalist approach to state marijuana laws". But if you're in the business, if you work for the business you can't get a bank loan or set up a bank account because of the concern over the conflict between the state and federal law.
