During the campaign, President Trump pledged that as President he would honor and protect state’s rights in the 29 states that have legalized cannabis. Candidate Trump went so far as to say that if a state approved the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes he supported that decision.

The Obama administration wisely decided to suspend enforcement of federal law prohibiting cannabis possession in the 29 states where voters have approved it. Now, however, despite President Trumps pledge, Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly have announced a crackdown in the 29 states that have legalized cannabis and a resumption of federal law enforcement regarding possession and distribution of cannabis.

The US Cannabis Coalition is a coalition of Republicans and Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives, Libertarians, and others, who support the decision of the states to legalize cannabis.  It is our intention to identify, reach, and mobilize, millions of pro-cannabis voters to tell the President to keep his word. It is our intention to lobby the Trump Administration from the top on down to recognize the medicinal value and potential of cannabis.

The facts are on our side-opioid addiction is down in the states that have legalized cannabis as are drug overdose deaths and all classes of petty non-violent crime. At the same time, we must increase public awareness of the millions in state revenues state-approved cannabis is generating for the states and the thousands of jobs this state-approved multi-billion cannabis industry has created. Legalized cannabis has also crippled the drug cartels who extort those who are sick or dying.

Millions of Americans are getting medical relief from the use of cannabis in all its forms. When Attorney General Jeff Sessions says “good people don’t smoke marijuana” he’s wrong; sick people smoke marijuana, many millions of them.

The USCC will work to persuade President Trump to keep his pledge to protect state legalized cannabis.

The USCC is also dedicated to persuading the President to reclassify cannabis from its current Schedule 1 classification under federal law (where it is grouped with heroin and other far more dangerous drugs) so that doctors across the country can legally prescribe it for patients who could benefit and banks could conduct legal cannabis business.

The USCC also supports additional federal funding for unbiased research into the medicinal benefits and properties of cannabis. Extensive and well-funded research in Israel indicates the potential for medical breakthroughs and better research in the United States is vital.

USCC will also continue to build a coalition of liberal Democrats and libertarian Republicans in the US House and Senate to spearhead an eventual effort to introduce and pass a bill legalizing the possession and use of cannabis through legislation in the event that the Trump administration does not reverse it current plans to override the decision of 29 states to legalize cannabis use and crack down on cannabis obsession and distribution.

Make no mistake about it, the well-heeled special interests of Big-Pharma will actively oppose our efforts to reform federal cannabis law as will the “drug warriors” in the Trump Administration who are ignoring the President’s pledge. That’s why we need you to support and contribute to the United States Cannabis Coalition today.


John Morgan’s next target: Swaying the Trump administration on pot

@MichaelAuslen Via Miami Herald Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan  scored a big win this week as state lawmakers passed a medical marijuana bill, which Gov. Rick Scott plans to sign. Morgan bankrolled two political campaigns to legalize medical pot, finally succeeding in 2016. And though he plans to sue the state over a smoking ban in …

Mr. President: Marijuana Is A States Rights Issue

By Roger Stone…Via   When President Trump was still Candidate Donald J. Trump, he made many remarks regarding honoring States Rights when it came to the individual States to decide on the issue of marijuana. In the now famous November 23, 2015 GQ video, then Candidate Trump talks about legalized marijuana, and in it …


The United States Cannabis Coalition is a pro-cannabis advocacy  group engaged in influencing national and state level policy makers, and legislation, on marijuana industry issues.

The USSC is dedicated to protecting state’s rights and state mandated marijuana laws, while working to reclassify Cannabis to below a Schedule 1 level federal classification – so doctors across the country can legally prescribe it, more research can be conducted and banks could conduct cannabis business.

President Trump promised that his Administration would honor and protect state’s rights, but his Attorney General has made statements contradicting those assurances.

We must persuade the President to keep his word- and we must reach, and mobilize, millions of pro-cannabis voters to tell the President – KEEP YOUR PROMISE!
