Trump signals support for legislation easing US ban on pot

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to legalize marijuana during his 2015 general election campaign.

They have wide bipartisan support for the bill and Gardner says President Donald Trump is also on board.

Asked if he supported the bill, Trump said: "I really do".

Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney and state Sen.

Warren expressed support for legalization during her 2016 re-election campaign in MA, whose residents voted to legalize the drug that year.

The bill represents the latest loop in a roller-coaster relationship Gardner has had with marijuana and the Trump administration since the start of the year. The bold bill would allow businesses and individuals working in the burgeoning legal marijuana industry in states around the nation to operate without fear of U.S. Department of Justice prosecution.

NPR's Sarah McCammon covers the White House and joins us now. Phil Murphy and state lawmakers on whether to make New Jersey the ninth state to legalize marijuana for recreational use.

California is now the world's largest legal recreational marijuana economy - created under a law that took effect this year - and is projected to grow to $7 billion in revenues. That's the same category as heroin, as LSD.

Prohibits the distribution or sale of marijuana to persons under the age of 21 other than for medical purposes. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), would reshape the legal landscape for marijuana.

The House of Commons must now vote to accept or reject the amendments before sending the legislation back to the Senate.

Trump's support of the bill was expected since it is seen as the result of an agreement reached by the president and Gardner in April. I know exactly what he's doing. "We're looking at it". Now the president's saying that he likely will. But if you're in the business, if you work for the business you can't get a bank loan or set up a bank account because of the concern over the conflict between the state and federal law. And today on Colorado Public Radio, Sessions said he'll be watching what happens in Congress and noted that while the federal government generally hasn't made marijuana enforcement a big priority compared to more unsafe drugs, he says it's still illegal. But it remains on the books as a prohibited substance.
