Before boarding Marine One President Trump told reporters he is likely to support ending the ban on marijuana.
The Marijuana Moment reported:
“I really do. I support Senator Gardner. I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.”
The bill, the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Entrusting States (STATES) Act, would amend the federal Controlled Substances Act to exempt state-legal marijuana activity from its provisions.
It would also protect banks that work with legal cannabis businesses and legalize industrial hemp.
