New Bipartisan Bill Could End Federal Laws Prohibiting Marijuana

Canada closer to legalising marijuana after senate vote in favour

But before Trump can sign anything, the bill, of course, must make it through Congress. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has said recently that he opposes federal marijuana legalization. "I know exactly what he's doing", Trump told reporters in Washington, AP reported.

Trump was asked by a reporter what he thought of the proposed law as he headed to Quebec for the G7 summit. "I think in the previous conversation we had he talked about the need to solve this conflict between state and federal law", Gardner says. "We're looking at it, but we'll probably end up supporting that, yes".

He said he supports it now and will "probably" support it going forward.

Senator Warren took to Twitter to promote the bill in a series of social media posts, writing that the "federal government's marijuana policies are broken, outdated, and disregard the rights of states like MA & CO that have taken their own thoughtful approaches".

Nine states have legalized recreational marijuana and another 20 have legalized the drug for medical use.

The bill, nicknamed the STATES Act, would require states, territories and tribes to abide by certain restrictions to qualify for protection from federal law enforcement, including a minimum age for marijuana sales and restrictions on selling the drug at highway rest stops.

David and Victoria Beckham aren't getting divorced, despite social media speculation
Representatives of David and Victoria Beckham have called rumours the couple is set to divorce "fake social media news". In addition to their daughter, Harper , they share three other children: Brooklyn , 19, Romeo , 15, and Cruz , 13.

Trump's remarks put him sharply at odds with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the issue. "States like MA have put a lot of work into implementing common sense marijuana regulations - and they have the right to enforce their own marijuana policies". On Friday, the president said his aides were reviewing similar cases that appear to have drawn "unfair" treatment from the justice system.

On Thursday, the legalization advocacy group NORML, which helped to craft the bill with Warren and Gardner, released a letter detailing 55 advocacy organizations which have expressed their support for its passage.

Trump's backing would signal a turn from his Justice Department's stance on marijuana legalization.

It also seeks to address financial issues caused by the current federal prohibition by stating that compliant transactions are not trafficking and do not result in proceeds of an unlawful transaction. My view is clear: "The federal law remains in effect nationwide, just as it does for heroin and cocaine".

"It's a really elegant solution", said Hezekiah Allen, executive director of the California Growers Association, an advocacy group for hundreds of marijuana farmers, business owners and patients in the state. Liszewski, though, said it might leave room for that possibility, if the states sending and receiving the product both authorized those operations.
