President Trump spoke with reporters on Friday before departing to the much anticipated G7 meetings in Canada this weekend.
Before boarding Marine One President Trump told reporters he is likely to support ending the ban on marijuana.
The Marijuana Moment reported:
“I really do. I support Senator Gardner. I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.”
The bill, the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Entrusting States (STATES) Act, would amend the federal Controlled Substances Act to exempt state-legal marijuana activity from its provisions.
It would also protect banks that work with legal cannabis businesses and legalize industrial hemp.
