Trump, senator strike deal on legalized marijuana

Mr. Gardner said he's lifting his hold and working with colleagues on legislation that would protect marijuana operations in states that have legalized the drug.

Although the decision didn't officially amount to an order to change course, it gave federal prosecutors in legal marijuana states the leeway to clamp down on cannabis.

The US Justice Department under President Barack Obama created guardrails for federal prosecution of the sale and possession of cannabis, which remains illegal under federal law, and allowed legalised marijuana to flourish.

"President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states' rights issue once and for all", the senator added. Until then, it's just a promise, and accepting the promises of a pathological liar is never wise.

Gardner, whose state legalized recreational marijuana in 2014, threatened to block all Justice Department nominees after Sessions' January memo. Attorney General Jeff Sessions instead directed us attorneys to use prosecutorial discretion.

California Gov. agrees to deploy National Guard troops, but with a twist
Brown noted in his letter that "immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they've been in almost 50 years". State leaders in California have made no secret of their opposition to numerous Trump administration's moves on immigration.

But Trump has held a sharply different view from Sessions on the issue. In light of Trump's phone call, the senator said he has had a change of heart.

Trump "does respect Colorado's right to decide for themselves how to best approach this issue", White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said in an interview Friday. As a result, the Senator blocked all appointments for about 20 Justice Nominees. But the Journal's sources say Trump wants the top Justice Department officials gone anyway: "Eventually, it will happen", a source said. "So we're reluctant to reward that sort of behavior".

"The people of MA have voted to make marijuana legal under state law and the Cannabis Control Commission has been given the authority to establish a strong regulatory system that ensures public safety and allows for responsible sale and use of marijuana products", she said in a statement.

Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., wrote to Sessions this week, urging him to back off efforts to curtail medical marijuana research at the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The White House is reportedly seeking to build a case for the firing of Rosenstein and has asked allies outside of the administration to publicly attack the deputy attorney general and Mueller's probe. He has opposed decriminalizing the substance as an elected official.
