Pot stocks surge, the Republican President supports state laws on legalization

This story is big news on all the major Canadian news media.

I can't find much on US sources yet.

Are the fundie menace going to turn on him now?

Pot stocks surge on news Trump favours giving states latitude on legalization


U.S. President Donald Trump endorsed letting states decide how to regulate marijuana, in a major boost for the legal pot industry, Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner said. Pot stocks Friday surged on the news.

Mr. Gardner said that as a result of Mr. Trump’s assurances he’ll end a blockade of Justice Department nominees. Mr. Gardner held up the nominees after Attorney-General Jeff Sessions rescinded an earlier Justice Department memo that shielded marijuana operations in states such as Colorado from enforcement of the federal ban on the drug.

“Since the campaign, President Trump has consistently supported states’ rights to decide for themselves how best to approach marijuana,” Mr. Gardner said in a statement on Friday. “President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states’ rights issue once and for all.”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr. Gardner’s statement is “accurate.”

I find this suspicious as i think that the feds/banksters could still seize the cash at will.

Edibles are far superior and has a very different reaction w/in the body.
