The White House announced on Friday that President Trump will lift his administration’s plans for a potential crackdown on marijuana in states that have legalized the drug.
Colorado Senator Cory Gardner said on Friday that he received a commitment from Trump that the rescission “will not impact Colorado’s legal marijuana industry.”
Gardner also said that Trump would support legislation and is going “to fix this states’ rights issue once and for all.”
It was back in January that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had rescinded a policy that eased enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that legalized it.
“We’re always consulting Congress about issues, including states’ rights, of which the president is a firm believer. And the statement that the senator put out earlier today is accurate,” confirmed White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
