On Thursday morning at 10:45 AM ET, U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Cory Gardner (R-CO) will hold a press conference to discuss a far-reaching bill they plan to file to end the federal war on marijuana.

The move comes after Gardner cut a deal with President Trump to support such legislation in exchange for the senator ending a blockade on Justice Department nominees he began in protest of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s decision earlier this year to rescind Obama-era guidance generally protecting state cannabis laws.

This post will be updated with live video of the press conference when it begins.

The draft bill, details of which Marijuana Moment first reported last month, would amend the federal Controlled Substances Act to exempt state-legal marijuana activity from its provisions.

The Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Entrusting States (STATES) Act would also protect banks that work with legal cannabis businesses and legalize industrial hemp.

In a news advisory, Warren’s office said the legislation will “ensure that each state has the right to determine for itself the best approach to marijuana within its borders.” It also “extends these protections to Washington D.C., U.S. territories, and federally recognized tribes, and contains common-sense guardrails to ensure that states, territories, and tribes regulating marijuana do so safely.”

Fuck Trump for pardoning a drug dealer.
Every Republican that has ever used Killer Weed should be locked up for life.
If they possess a firearm,they should be executed.
We have laws in this country you fucking felons.

If Sessions gave me a reward, I would help lock up a lot of the slime of humanity ganga addicted Republicans.
You are trash!

With alcohol it's not socially acceptable to drink before noon. Please someone enlighten me on the rules wrt MJ. I mean, if we were talking about drinking the violation would be obvious, but this is an uncharted territory...

Gardner said at the press conference that he spoke to President Trump about marijuana on Thursday morning and that he remains supportive of an approach that respects state laws.

“We can’t go backwards. We can only go forwards,” the president said, according to Gardner.

Warren said that it was Sessions’s move to rescind the Obama-era guidance that spurred lawmakers to work across the aisle to find a solution to enact statutory protections for local cannabis policies.

“Outdated federal marijuana laws have perpetuated our broken criminal justice system, created barriers to research, and hindered economic development,” Warren said in a press release. “States like Massachusetts have put a lot of work into implementing common sense marijuana regulations – and they have the right to enforce their own marijuana policies. The federal government needs to get out of the business of outlawing marijuana.”

“In 2012, Coloradans legalized marijuana at the ballot box and the state created an apparatus to regulate the legal marijuana industry. But because of the one-size-fits-all federal prohibition, state decisions like this put Colorado and other states at odds with the federal government,” Gardner added. “The federal government is closing its eyes and plugging its ears while 46 states have acted. The bipartisan STATES Act fixes this problem once and for all by taking a states’ rights approach to the legal marijuana question. The bipartisan, commonsense bill ensures the federal government will respect the will of the voters – whether that is legalization or prohibition – and not interfere in any states’ legal marijuana industry.”

Trumpublican priorities were waging a war against Americans who utilize a plant and it’s flowers. Did you ever even wonder why?

I mean why did you post it in this thread?

I can understand as a mod telling people to cut out personal attacks, that’s the job of a moderator, but to add in the TDS bit seems like you were attempting to levy a personal attack of your own, no?

@Patrick do the mods have privilege to take jabs at posters that the rest of us don’t?

More importantly, why do people resort to personal attacks? Why not just stick to discussion about the topic?

Aphroman, stop with the personal attacks. A personal attack means anything directed at an individual. Last warning or your stuff is going to start getting nuked (this goes to everyone who is trying to direct comments towards anyone personally).

Thanks.

This is getting creepy. Why do the Trumpublicans struggle to refrain from personal attacks? Is it an intelligence thing? Like you see someone smarter than you discussing something that makes you uncomfortable, so you lash out instead?

Sad to see Right Wingers so #triggered by simple truths. It’s very unAmerican

Still waiting for you to point out where i made any personal attacks (you cannot because I have not)

However, the far right moderation bias rears it’s ugly head again. I marked the same personal attacks as personal three times, because a mod kept reinstating them anyways because they were levied by a low IQ trumpkin against a Free Thinking American.

Yet nary a peep about those, now all of a sudden you’re making shit up that I’m the one making personal attacks. Bizarro World

How about lead by example? Why do you feel the need to insert personal jabs of your own while telling others to refrain?

Once we legalize Pot, all the world's problems will end.

Also, never mind almost a century of marijuana prohibition. Refusing to legalize now is a Trumpian Fault. Obama was too busy being awesome to bother. hahah

President Trump said on Friday that he “really” supports new marijuana legislation filed by Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Cory Gardner (R-CO).

“I really do. I support Senator Gardner,” he said when asked about the bill by reporters during an impromptu press conference on the White House lawn as he prepared to board Marine One to head to G-7 summit in Canada.

“I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it,” he said. “But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.”

How do you figure? You seem to forget that Cory Gardner had to out Art of the Deal Trump to get us here. Remember him holding up Chumps Justice Department appointments for 3+ months? I do

If Trump supported Cannabis he would have ended that shit on day 1. Liberals are winning every battle, and the war will be won while Republicans hold absolute power

I’m just getting out in front of the fake news because everyone knows the Trump Dick Suckers are very fucking stupid and easily manipulated so they will try to spin this as a Trump win. Morons

You’re right, but although he’s fairly liberal, he’s also a teetotaler with a strong bent against drugs and alcohol. He’s got no love for the shit. So expecting him to do something about the marijuana scheduling without being forced is naive.

I have no issues with Trump at the end of the day, it’s the Trump Dick Sucker crowd that is problematic. They’re too easily manipulated and have no problem being wholly dishonest and disingenuous to themselves as well as others.

The TDS crowd that has been manipulated to blame everything on Liberals while never even once taking the party that they support to task. THIS ALWAYS LEADS TO THE WORST KIND OF GOVERNMENT. And the worst kind of laws. It’s where Hemp/Cannabis Prohibition was born in the first place.

Bad laws harm good people

Bad Americans support bad laws that enable suffering to continue, when all right wingers ever needed to do for the past 80 years was stand up for our country, stand up for what is right, and all these horrific tolls and costs netted from the Conservatives War on Drugs never would’ve had to be incurred. It’s not too late, but it is too expensive a cost to take these Trump Dick Suckers with kiddie gloves

Do you feel that our laws should be dictated by whatever the President likes or doesn’t like?

To me it’s very simple, we should do what’s right, no matter how much any individual likes or doesn’t like it. It’s a very simplistic cost benefit analysis

What are the costs of cannabis/hemp Prohibition

What are the benefits

That led me to realize that this was always of the utmost importance. Imagine if you had to watch one of your kids suffer 100 seizures a month when the cure was right at your fingertips, but Christian Conservatives demand you suffer because they don’t want to give up the power that Prohibition netted them over blacks and working poor people?

GW pharm is doing clinical trials right now showing positive results for Cannabis to fucking cure brain cancer.

It’s a 50 billion dollar economy that Right Wingers demanded remain in the black market, do you realize how large a handout that is to gangs like MS13 that the TDS crowd feigns outrage over?

Nobody ever claimed that Cannabis will solve all the worlds problems, but when dishonest people erect that straw man, simply ask them why they then support leaving Prohibition in place, and watch them fumble about like a nitwit. Or just avoid it altogether probably because of a lack of brainpower to muster up their own opinion on the matfer.

Lastly, at this exact moment in time, it’s been highly investable and I like to help people make money.

So what is the position of the opposition again?

Oh ya, muh TDS lmao at the Failed Losers

On the record.

Q Do you support Senator Gardner’s marijuana federalism bill?

THE PRESIDENT: I really do. I support Senator Gardner. I know exactly what he’s doing; we’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.

Last big hurdle to overcome is Republicans in Congress. Tall hill to climb, they aren’t going to give up their racist War on Drugs without a fight. Pete Sessions is a very unAmerican Piece of Shit. And the Trump Dick Suckers won’t hold their party accountable for anything (imagine that). But the Liberals are here to fight for our Rights. Thank God
