Trump to support ending federal prohibition of marijuana

• https://www.naturalnews.com

(Natural News) Just a little more than 500 days into his first term, there are already signs that President Donald Trump will cruise to reelection in 2020.

The economy is not just humming along, it's roaring. Wall Street is up; housing starts and values are up; retirement earnings are up; unemployment is at historic lows; the U.S. military is regaining its predominance; and the president has slashed and burned scores of burdensome regulations.

He's picked the right battles in our neverending culture war. He's delivering on his pledge to "Make America Great Again."

Now he's set to sign off on a policy that will no doubt shore up his core support and even win him some converts.

As reported by The Marijuana Moment, Trump — on his way out of the White House to the G-7 summit in neighboring Canada — said he "really" supports legislation co-authored by Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, and Cory Gardner, R-Colo., that would give states back more of their constitutional autonomy as it pertains to the authority to decide their own marijuana usage laws.

"I really do. I support Senator Gardner," he said in response to a reporter who asked whether he backs the legislation. "I know exactly what he's doing. We're looking at it," Trump said. "But I probably will end up supporting that, yes."

The bill is called the "Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Entrusting States (STATES) Act," and in part, it would "amend the federal Controlled Substances Act to exempt state-legal marijuana activity from its provisions."
