So there is good news for a change. The President has reversed course or appears to have reversed an attitude of the current administration toward states that have legalized and or Medical Cannabis policies. The attorney general early on reversed the Obama administration policy to not target states that have legal policies in place.
President Trump is inclined to support bi-partician legislation in congress to ease the ban on Marijuana. This is also a win for states rights as the bill would help change the federal government’s policy of treating Cannabis as a class 4 drug similar to LSD and recreational drugs that are clearly not being used for medical benefit.
Jeff Sessions stated that his view remains that the federal policy is to treat it like heroin and cocaine. But he added let’s see how much support it has.
