Default Here's where Donald Trump stands on marijuana legalization

Here's where Donald Trump stands on marijuana legalization | Business Insider

Marijuana legalization has been a hot-button issue this election cycle.

On Election Day, it will appear on the ballot in nine states.

Recreational marijuana is currently legal in four states, and 24 states have varying forms of medical marijuana laws on the books.

Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, has flip-flopped somewhat on this issue throughout his public life.

Recently, Trump has supported state’s rights to choose how to legislate medical marijuana, but has not expressly called for legalization.

“In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state,” Trump told*The Washington Post. “… Marijuana is such a big thing. I think medical should happen — right? Don’t we agree? I think so. And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states.”

He has also expressed support for medical marijuana,*telling Bill O’Reilly in February*that he’s, “in favour of medical marijuana 100%.”

“I know people that have serious problems and they did that they really — it really does help them,” Trump said

Anyone who voted for Trump thinking he was pro cannabis is either misinformed or a willing idiot. Trump's nomination of Jeff Sessions as AG is proof of his true intentions--to roll back all state approved use of cannabis. No kidding, I was around in the 1980s and that is where things are headed, back to the bunker and loose lips sink ships. Legal businesses in CO, WA, OR, MA, ME etc will be decimated, many good jobs will go back underground.

Republicans are probably the greatest enemy to USA's founding libertarian ideals and the next 4 years will show just how much they want to control your life and personal choices.

Easy now chicken little. Trump hasn't even been sworn in and you're already claiming the sky is falling. State vs Federal law suits would be highly expensive and embarrassing to both parties. There are two possible outcomes and should state rights be upheld the federal government would be in a precarious position. The chances of such a scenario arising particularly on a popular issue such as legalization is highly unlikely.

Sessions will likely spend most of his energies pursuing Trumps stated agenda of immigration enforcement, anti terrorism, internal corruption, ending sanctuary cities and drug cartel activities.

Hopefully when 2020 comes around there will be a viable candidate with a clear pro legalization stance.

Socialism is great untill you run out of other peoples money.

Hitler was a socialist. Stalin too. The term "Nazi" was an abbreviated term for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei.

With respect you might want to reconsider using that term as some find it highly offensive due to the amount of killing and suffering under both of those dictators.

Thanks but I don't need anyone to "defend" me.

Historical facts are just that. Facts. Hitler, Castro, Stalin, The Khmer Rouge and Mao were all socialists. They were also responsible for the death of millions and untold suffering of millions more.

Venezuela is facing an economic and social apocalypse thanks to repeating the mistakes of the past.

This isn't something I would wish on anybody.

I dunno why some of you are jumping off a cliff here. Hillary was never in favor of legalizing weed, and at BEST promised to remove it from a Schedule I classified drug. To what, a schedule II? Nothing great there.

Trump has said MANY TIMES in the past that he is actually in favor of legalizing all drugs in order to kill off the cartels and end the war on drugs. He changed his stance to get more votes, but I doubt that he has changed his mind on legalizing drugs.

As for how they stood and stand, here is a place that has waded through it all. There were far worse possible candidates than Trump when it came to weed, particularly Rubio and Cruz.

https://www.mpp.org/2016-presidential-candidates/

My experience with legal weed is that it has really not changed a thing. It is not what it is cracked up to be, and in many ways it is actually worse. Weed was always around the west coast since I was born though, so that is my personal experience. Legal or not, people will grow and smoke it here. It is legal for now. If the feds want to bust everyone, I wish them luck.

And if you think this is bad? I lived through both the Nixon and Reagan administrations, as well as Bush I and Bush II eras. Weed was always around through it all. Nixon of course gave us Paraquat, but... that just led to US grown weed.

Well, you're an idiot after all. Those were all totalitarian regimes.

Socialism in the nordic model, like Senator Sanders proposed. All you have is rhetoric. Have fun with your Idiocracy.

The*National Socialist German Workers' Party*(German:**Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei*, abbreviatedNSDAP), commonly referred to in English as the*Nazi Party

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Party

History shows that the facts are not on your side.

Of course they were all totalitarian regimes. How else does one enforce "equality"? Every socialist/communist society has resulted in financial and social collapse.



Indeed, before the emergence of welfare-state policies beginning in the 1960s and 1970s, Sweden was among the most prosperous and fast-growing economies on the planet. Between 1870 and 1936, when Sweden was characterized by relatively free markets, the nation enjoyed the highest rate of growth in the industrialized world. Innovation and entrepreneurship flourished, making Sweden one of the richest countries on Earth. Then came the radical Social Democratic period characterized by an ever-larger and more expensive government. Between 1975 and the mid-1990s — marked by the radical, if short-lived, experiment in “Third Way” socialism — Sweden dropped from being the fourth richest nation in the world down to the 13th richest.



Fortunately for Swedes, as the giant welfare state's harmful effects became increasingly obvious, the Swedish political class began to reverse course. From lowering taxes and government spending to deregulating and privatizing broad swaths of the economy, policymakers realized that the nation's continued success depended on freer markets — not total government
. Still, the damage was severe. As Sanandaji explains, citing his earlier research on the subject, the rate of business formation during the “third-way era” was “dreadful.” In 2004, none of the 100 largest firms ranked by employment were founded within Sweden after 1970. “Furthermore, between 1950 and 2000, although the Swedish population grew from 7 million to almost 9 million, net job creation in the private sector was close to zero,” he observed.

Today, Denmark, despite higher taxes, has more economic freedom than the United States. Sweden and Finland are both catching up, too. And interestingly, despite Sanders' recent pronouncements on ABC News about Scandinavia having “more income and wealth equality,” Sweden still has a great deal more “wealth inequality” today than the United States, according to a study cited in the monograph

Debunking the Myth of Socialist

Rhetoric eh? All you've got is blissful ignorance and naivety.
