Trump and Ending the Federal Marijuana Ban
One of the major criticisms against the Trump White House, is that they are anti-marijuana. And if you have heard Jeff Sessions talk about it you would'd think he just finished viewed Reefer Madness. But Trump recently said he would most likely support the STATES Act presented by Senators Cory Gardner (Republican from Colorado) and Elizabeth Warren (Democrat from Massachusetts.). 

![Screen Shot 2018-06-18 at 7.37.45 AM.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmYKmjHUHfCw2Sa8wc7g87vAGPAU5vgR92SgBbyEXKLAP8/Screen%20Shot%202018-06-18%20at%207.37.45%20AM.png)

Of course this puts him in 180 degree opposition to his Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It is Session after all who axed Eric Holder's decree of stopping Federal involvement in the growing and selling of weed where states have legalized it. And although the Obama administration is plagued by scandal, this one decree was one of the small golden linings on the dark cloud of that era in American politics.

<b>Senators Cory Gardner (Republican from Colorado) and Elizabeth Warren (Democrat from Massachusetts) present their STATES Act bill that would effectively get the Feds off the backs of anyone legally growing marijuana. </b>

Of course there is a lot not to like About Elizabeth Warren. But, anyone who enjoys the freedom of good cannabis products has to agree that here, teamed with her counterpart, Cory Gardner, she is right on target. Allowing states to make the decision is a move away from Federalism that according to Gardner is a violation of States Rights. And as States Rights are a founding principle of our Republic, stemming the tide of overbearing Federal rules is a good thing.

<b>From the belly of the beast, Matt Yurus reporting for CBS Los Angeles local news makes a factual report about Trump supporting the STATES Act.</b>

Cynics will say that Trump is thinking about 2020 already. And ending the Federal ban will only help him secure more votes. But, when you look at Trump's record thus far, he seems willing to buck establishment dinosaur Republicans who staunchly enforced anti-Marijuana laws for decades. And when he makes these decisions he is playing more to his base, which are Constitutionalists and Libertarians.

<b>The wisdom of Judge Napolitano gets down on the legal issues of marijuana on Fox Business; Varney & Co.</b>

One of the issues plaguing the legal marijuana business now, is that it is essentially a cash business. This is because there are many major banking chains that refuse to accept money from illegal activities. And while many people see the irony in this rule, the fact that funds could be seized by Federal authorities is the reason the major banks shy away. Of course, there is a vibrant cryptocurrency relationship with marijuana, but this is not going to get the attention of the average American citizen. 

![Screen Shot 2018-06-18 at 8.05.09 AM.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPrTbbF5PW2usqDf6iPjZMJNARkvGY2kgNdn3j7DVE3b9/Screen%20Shot%202018-06-18%20at%208.05.09%20AM.png)
<b>.."if he can't get the Congress to do that [pass the STATES Act}, he can ask Jeff Sessions to reinstate the Eric Holder Decree." - Judge Andrew Napolitano</b>

Either way you look at it, Trump looks poised to win over a lot of people who know the truth about marijuana. And it will be interesting how the doubled-down anti-Trump hate squad will deal with this once he promotes and helps pass the STATES Act.
