Colorado Senator Releases Statement On Marijuana Policy

Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said he and Trump had reached the agreement following the senator's pledge to block all Justice Department nominees until the president promised not to interfere in Colorado's legal marijuana industry.

President Donald Trump has reportedly lent his help to a USA senator from Colorado, promising to once more legal guidelines that "protects states' rights" on legalized marijuana.

Simply now, Gardner and Justice officers have been in discussions for months to get the holds lifted. "Late Wednesday, I acquired a dedication from the President that the Division of Justice's rescission of the Cole memo shouldn't be going to impression Colorado's licensed marijuana enterprise".

"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 Olympia, Ferguson said in a news release, "I understand President Trump has offered his support for states to have the right to regulate marijuana and for legislation to enshrine this right in law".

"Because of these commitments, I have informed the Administration that I will be lifting my remaining holds on Department of Justice nominees", Gardner said. Only a fool would bet any money on it.

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. Until then, it's just a promise, and accepting the promises of a pathological liar is never wise.

Gardner called out both Sessions and Trump on the Senate floor shortly after Sessions announced his decision in January, evoking the president's past remarks on the campaign trail about states' rights while reminding the AG of their past discussions on the issue before the Senate confirmed Sessions in 2017.

"The President did speak with the senator", she said. Sessions' memo reversed Obama-era policies on recrational pot and hinted at a federal crackdown.

But Trump has held a sharply different view from Sessions on the issue.

Gardner said he is already set to unfreeze some of Trump's nominees.

During the campaign, Trump said states should be able to chart their own course on marijuana. "So we're reluctant to reward that sort of behavior".

Short also told the Post that the president respects "Colorado's right to decide for themselves how to best approach this issue". "But at the same time, we're anxious to get our team at the Department of Justice".

It may be modeled on a 2014 budget amendment that prevented the Department of Justice from spending money to enforce federal laws against marijuana users and businesses in states that legalized the drug and were following all applicable state laws.

In addition to Gardner's holds, DOJ has faced notable bipartisan pushback from Capitol Hill when it comes to marijuana.
