Donald Trump Vs. Marijuana: Here’s Who Will Win

By now, many have seen the headlines: "White House Spokesman Predicts More Federal Action Against Marijuana" (NPR), "White House: Feds will step up marijuana law enforcement" (CNN), "Marijuana entrepreneurs try to stay calm after Spicer comments on weed" (CNBC). It is hard to believe a minute and a half out of an hour-long press briefing could cause so much commotion.

Let's examine what White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer actually said. He essentially said two things. He distinguished medical marijuana from adult use, and he believes "you'll see greater enforcement" of the Controlled Substance Act against recreational use.

Mr. Spicer did not say there were any imminent actions from the U.S. Department of Justice, the agency charged with enforcing federal law. In fact, he said the question of enforcement would be better addressed by the DOJ itself. Mr. Spicer was stating what he believes.

Here's what I believe. I believe Mr. Spicer's acknowledgement that the president supports state's rights when it comes to medical marijuana is a positive development. Mr. Spicer also referenced the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment, first passed in 2014, which currently prohibits the federal government from prosecuting medical marijuana in states where it is legal.

"The president understands the pain and suffering that many people go through who are facing especially terminal diseases and the comfort that some of these drugs, including medical marijuana, can bring to them," Mr. Spicer said.

So at least on the question of medical marijuana, there seems to be broad consensus. Medical marijuana is now legal in 28 states and accounts for about three quarters of the burgeoning legal cannabis industry.

"Americans are realizing that prohibition has not stemmed consumption and only served to enrich drug cartels and unfairly imprison millions of people."
But here's the thing. Mr. Spicer's opinion notwithstanding, there is growing consensus on adult use as well. The majority of Americans support full legalization. The number of states that have approved legalized recreational adult use doubled last November to eight, including my home state of California, the nation's most populous state.

Americans are realizing that prohibition has not stemmed consumption and only served to enrich drug cartels and unfairly imprison millions of people. Whether you are for or against adult use, more and more people are realizing that the better path is to have a well-regulated industry, much like alcohol is today. It is safer for consumers, it is safer for the public, not to mention it creates tax revenue and jobs.

A week before Mr. Spicer spoke, something even more significant for the cannabis industry happened, but it didn't get as much notice as the White House press briefing. A bipartisan group of congressional leaders announced the formation of the first ever Congressional Cannabis Caucus. The founders, U.S. representatives Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), Don Young (R-Alaska), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and Jared Polis (D-Colo.), vowed to sponsor and pass federal laws that protect states' rights on cannabis issues, including adult use.

Mr. Rohrabacher, a long-time advocate of marijuana causes, earlier introduced the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act, which would amend the Controlled Substances Act to prohibit federal prosecution of marijuana buyers and sellers who comply with state laws.

Elsewhere in Congress, prominent legislators like U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have called for further reform, including clearer banking regulations and tax laws for the legal cannabis industry.

In the long-term, I see momentum building in favor of full legalization. Congress and the American people are on the right side of this issue, and we fully expect that the rest of the federal government will follow suit.

To Along With The Above...............

White House: Feds will step up marijuana law enforcement

The White House said Thursday it expects law enforcement agents to enforce federal marijuana laws when they come into conflict with states where recreational use of the drug is permitted.
"I do believe you will see greater enforcement of it," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said regarding federal drug laws, which still list marijuana as an illegal substance.
That's a reversal from the Obama administration's stance, which laid out in an official memo that the federal government wouldn't interfere in states where nonmedical use of marijuana is allowed.

That guidance was issued after two states -- Colorado and Washington -- voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana. Obama said in the immediate aftermath of those votes that the federal government had "bigger fish to fry" than cracking down on marijuana use in states where it's considered legal.
Most drug enforcement operations are carried out by state and local authorities, with little involvement by the federal government. Enforcing marijuana laws has been considered a lower priority for federal drug agents, who have remained focused on curbing narcotics trafficking and combating a nationwide epidemic of opioid abuse.
Spicer on Thursday, however, linked marijuana use with the widespread abuse of painkillers, suggesting that allowing recreational use of marijuana could be interpreted as condoning drug use more widely.
"When you see something like the opioid addiction crisis blossoming in so many states around this country, the last thing we should be doing is encouraging people," Spicer said. "There is still a federal law that we need to abide by when it comes to recreational marijuana and drugs of that nature."

He was careful to distinguish between use of medical marijuana and recreational marijuana. President Donald Trump, he said, understood that marijuana could help ease suffering for patients with terminal illnesses.
Trump took varying positions on marijuana during his campaign for president. He said during remarks in June 2015 that legal recreational use was "bad," adding he felt "strongly about it."
But later that year he suggested the issue should be decided by individual states and not by the federal government.
"In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state," he said in Nevada in October 2015.
He's remained staunchly supportive of medical marijuana, telling Fox News host Bill O'Reilly he was "in favor of medical marijuana 100%."
"I know people that have serious problems and they did that they really -- it really does help them," he said.

It is not funny how all my life marijuana was a horrible crime and anyone involved needed to be locked in prison. Yet all of the sudden they realize they can make tons of money and maybe it is okay. This whole thing is just a ploy to get your money. Anytime you submit to paying for a card or some type of permission slip they have won. I say All Growers and users should band together and tell them to stick their cards where the sun don't shine. Either it is okay or it is not, make up your fucking mind. If you don't like it you can kiss my ass and suck my fucking balls.

no doubt..the whole "war on drugs" is this in a nutshell..c.i.a. put more dope n u.s. n 70's-80's then any drug kingpin

i should say im a trump supporter,not every word he says but some ideas r great.shaking up congress is great.but u do realize nothing trump has done yet has came to forition.we r looking at obamas wrk right now.no matter the president,the bills the inact take yrs to show results..so wenever our country is doing good look at the last guy.we will c n 10yrs how well trump does.what he signs n his office and what he speaks about on tv r not 2 n the same.wen the market fell out on bush,that was alot of clintons bullshit like nafta
My stock price would disagree with,,, My stock went sky high under Trump. All my wotrthless obama pharmaceutical stock went to hell rite after Obama left. I moved all the stocks to construction and the rest is history,,,
Our builds in denver have been Low income apt under Obama. Downtown Denver Skyline has already changed under Trump with sky scrapers and Giant construction cranes ,So I guess it took Obama 8 years for his low income jobs took effect,,, I just dont see it that way.

You do more political talk here than growing.
My grow lectures on cannabis DNA and Advanced cannabis breeding,, I have found are not for this site, I have to go to science blogs to get interaction. I get very little response/questions from farmers on my basic tutorials.
BTW , i have 1000's more words on Robots and Growing than my political contributions... Fat Leaf Breeding Project is a good example...

I have not even got a question one cannabis DNA breeding tutorial so I quit posting here.

i guarantee they didnt change the building cuz of trump.massive construction projects r yrs n making bro.if you truly think anything he has signed yet has come to fruition then yur confused..n like i said im not an obama supporter..but its just common sense.if he signs something it takes yrs b4 its enacted.they make bills around bills covering loop holes for lil guys.

So you're saying Obama didn't suck. I can't even follow what the fuck trump supporters even want anymore. So everything wrong is Obama, everything good is Trump? But if I bash trump I'm not a real American, and if I support Obama I'm a traitor Muslim lover. Somehow after 3 months people are just massively rich cause Trump is president., and in 3 months the Linos of the world are just meraculously less picked on, but also complain liberals are on the attack against conservatives....there is no common sense or thought behind it. in 6 years if trump tanks and we almost certainly have a new president will you be like fuck I was wrong. As far as a business man, trump is a failure. Read art of the deal, how many of the projects he wrote about in that book were even successful, 1. Yes 1. Hell I'd love 250,000,000$ to "start from zero" and become successful like Trump. Shit Trump is only the third richest in his family can we at least get a smart Trump family member. But it's obvious all you have to do is act like a whiney 12 year old girl on twitter, oh and you know whole Russian thing. But hey don't forget about Hillary's emails or that socialist Sanders who wants to you know legalize weed in 50 states.........shit just realized that's what this dumbass thread is about.

Anyone hear honestly feel Trump will legalize cannabis or better yet support state laws over federal. Maybe Trump will pay for the wall with dispensary taxes.....oh wait he can't cause it's illegal federally. im fucking tired of hearing I'm a liberal dyke, I fought for this country, almost lost my life in battle, came home and lost my family because of what I gave mentally to survive and fight for ALL OF US! Then I hear people say we didn't do enough, my brothers and sisters didn't give enough to stop the bull fucking shit war, and on the other side I'm a baby killer. And now I'm to believe this angry little geriatric fuck is going to just fix it. It's amazing how for 8 years we got Obama ain't my ni**a Kenyan president, remember the oh so popular don't re-nig stickers in 2012 all started because of rumors from trump, did he apologize, not a fucking chance But the second liberals stand up its anarchy, socialist, death panels, anti American, anti jebus, anti Christian, anti anti anti. and we owe apologies. Cause we hurt trumpty dumptys feelings. Ah poor little guy.

Then why are you here? I think you know too much and can't focus on people. Mr.Robot? Are you talking automated grows? Some people don't have time to fight about who's right and wrong. You must have all the time in the world, which means shit. Most people probably read your thread and think you pulled it from some research paper..... ya know, like you didn't do what your putting up here.... I don't wanna go back and forth with someone that never gives into another persons ways. Your the boss.

I'll answer you 1st due to your logical debate protocol. Thk you for that btw...

You're rite & wrong;
We had lots ghetto builds, slum lord upgrades employing $10 - $2o ppl to work these Obama slum projects.
You are correct sir, these LARGE MASSIVE projects were ON HOLD under the obama era - Obama had EPA wht man sanctions/EPA restrictions on big Biz. Trump lifted sanctions to start construction and big biz companies and the building begun that quick and stocks and biz is exploding under Trump! ! ! !
Read any economy mag and they all say the same thing, Biz is booming again, we're ready break records in bout 2 years Trump to the like that the USA has Never seen. This will seal his next election when ppl see whats about to happen, he kicked all the politicians azzes in the elections, He's got the respect/attention of world leaders, He almost done kicking the Media Ass and watch what happen after that.

fatawa, if you go back and read my political comments I have been 90% correct,
And you are very correct in that under Obama these LARGE CONSTRUCTION projects were started, but they were STOPPED by Obama EPA RESTRICTIONS ! ! ! The Downtown Denver Skyline and Cities across the USA have many cranes building skyscrapers now because TRUMP IS BUILDER and he knows how to Build, pls dont doubt on that.

Lifting EPA sanctions so that the rich get richer...?
Great.
Let's throw the environment into the shitter all in the name of making us all so "great " again.
Just what we need ... more skyscrapers.

You're melting down, Neter, I'm going to re-read again to look for a foundation, a basis for your debate, My 1st read sped read was seeing many insults,

I have gathered that you think I flip my opinions as in your 1st sentence:
I think obama was the worst Pres in the history of the USA. He still tries to invoke his racism, much like Hitler was 1/2 Jewish , So did Obama hate 1/2 of his race.
Its not the brush stroke that make this picture famous. Obama gets credit for 2 things, he got Bin Ladin and he got Trump elected.
obama1.jpg


When you say Trump is a failure. I understand at that point that you just , plain & simply dont like the guy. Nothing wrong with that.

Your next reply;
''Anyone hear honestly feel Trump will legalize cannabis or better yet support state laws over federal ?""
I can see many sides to this debate, so will TRUMP let Sessions attack ?
in states like Colo, Home growers with big balls are poised to profit big time again if Sessions shuts dispenses. But instead we see the DEA along with local cops hit Colo home growers, I think ol hickNpoop is going to come after home growers and i think this last example has Hicks fingerprints on it. YES, The GOV will take over the dispenses in the end. Will they, the GOV, buy rights to these MMJ and REC companies. LMAO<Thats funny rite there,, the letter will arrive in the mail someday, the gov has and always will sell meds in the USA. DOW - DuPont - these guys are teaming up with bayer , they'll own it in the end. cannabis is not a good long term retirement investment imo.

Want to hate on Trump, Read about all the golf he has played. The dumb shit will drive his golf cart on the putting greens! Yes, ol Trumpy feels privaliged because he is privilaged , I guess he's getting presidential treatment but Ol Trump feels he deserves it. He'll likes to brag, and he know how to get elected. Low Energy Jeb, Little Marco, Liying Ted, Crooked Hillary, LMAO<Thats funny rite there,,

But those are good reasons i just mentioned for you, and Neter, you missed the best one, his locked room banter with the Bush brother bout grabbing women however he wants,,, Ive heard that kinda shit from so many guys and gay girls too, so I didnt melt, but I could see that heating up the ladies a little.

On a side note to all who read, as far as cannabis breeding;
Insults directed at me are directed at Not just me. Please understand that what you read on my Cannabis Breeding Project Tutorial are the work of many THC Farmers work, not just mine, you are insulting many ppl who are actively participate and have there genes/strains in our experiments and breeding projects.

In 2009 on the Farmer I posted links to all my research, lectures, notes. As a programmer I quickly kept all my tests, papers, lectures and the like on a website. I used these links all the time.
Plagiarism , fuck ya, if you see elegant writing from Lino, it either came from a paper some dick head made me spell check everything and graded me on, lecture , OR , Many times during my tutorials I will summarize my points in cannabis breeding with a copy and paste from the internet.
And plz realize as with the last FAT LEAF breeding Project tutorial and all my (our) work has been or is being documented on the my site.
Example: the last tutorial featured work from 2007 (the JillyBean Project), YOU WILL NOT FIND any tutorial anywhere that I have seen, where you can get examples of the seeds in genetic designations that Were produced from the experiments that I have ever seen anywhere in cannabis. If so plz show me the cannabis breeding tutorial where you can get the seeds created from the project, I aint seen it..

In this photo the keen eye catches the breeding date of 2008, this was the F1 cross. In this project for those who follow me, they'll understand that we take this project out to F8.. And as with 85% of the strains on this site, I've documented on my site the breeding there of and I'm still creating genetic designation for cannabis and certifying seed to strains so i now realize it life long project.

I taught HOW TO Mark Dom and Rec, using this exact method I showed the starting point ive used for breeding some Champs. It better to understand the odds.

i hav to admit i didnt but ill scroll back
SOrry I was not clear, no need to scroll back all tho that proclaimtions came true also.

I meant over the years Ive been pretty acurate.. But In the end I thought Hill was going to win so I was wrong on that. I thought Obama and Big Pharm Super Pac would take Trumpy out, so I was wrong on a big one.

he owns city skylines around the world and he seems to like golf courses.

over 96% of lottery winners & pro athletes go broke before retirement. If your meant to have money you have it cuz you think about it.
