Trump tells senator there will be no marijuana crackdown
Washington Examiner ^ | April 13, 2018

Gardner, a Republican, won the assurances by blocking Justice Department nominations after Attorney General Jeff Sessions withdrew the so-called Cole Memo in January.

Pot possession of any kind should not be a federal issue.

When I watch A & E’s “Live PD” and realize that seemingly half the population is driving around Stoned on Grass, its such a warm, comforting feeling.

A federal government that engages in the acts the FBI is known to do should not be busting people for smoking pot.

Trump did not run on this issue.

However, he did say during the campaign that it was a matter for the states - which is the Constitutional position.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Gardner's statement "is accurate," and that the president called Gardner a second time Friday. She told reporters at the daily White House press briefing that Trump is a "firm believer" in states' rights.

Marc Short, the White House's legislative affairs director, told the Washington Post that Trump “does respect Colorado’s right to decide for themselves how to best approach this issue.”

MAGA!

So his position today is consistent with the position he took as a candidate.
