Jeff Sessions … [and] medical marijuana
Suffice to say this is an issue that unites most on the left and right, as well as those who advocate for combat veterans and individuals who use marijuana for medical needs … Now it is up to Congress in the year-end spending bill whether the will of [then] candidate Trump and an overwhelming majority of both Houses (and, um, Americans) or the [current] Attorney General will win the day.
President Trump was always very clear in his many promises on medical marijuana. In October of 2015, he said at a rally in Nevada “the marijuana thing is such a big thing. I think medical should happen” and then on a Michigan radio station in March of 2016 he said “I think that it should be up to the states.” [He] even went on Fox News during the campaign and said of medical marijuana “I’m in favor of it a hundred percent.” [His] support for medical marijuana was unequivocal and considered to be a solemn promise to the voters who put him in office. When it comes to lower-profile yet critically important issues such as medical marijuana, [the current President’s] own Justice Department has been actively undermining [his] numerous, clear promises to respect the right of states to pass laws that allow for it. This is important.
