Colo. senator: Trump easing up on pot crackdown


April 16, 2018

President Donald Trump is promising not to challenge states that have legalized marijuana even though they are in conflict with federal law, according to GOP Sen. Cory Gardner.

The Colorado senator said on Friday that in a private conversation with Trump this week, the president assured him that the Justice Department will not crack down on the state's burgeoning legal marijuana industry. The assurance came despite the DOJ’s January rescission of the "Cole memo," which had directed Justice to focus on drug cartels and violent drug dealers rather than recreational marijuana in states where it is legal.
