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 new White House Chief of Staff 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 in direct contradiction to President Trump’s stated position.
