President Donald Trump has reportedly lent his support to a US senator from Colorado, promising to back legislation that "protects states' rights" on legalized marijuana.
Gardner said because of those commitments, he informed the Administration that he would be lifting remaining holds on DOJ nominees.
In a surprising turn of events, the Trump administration will ditch intentions to crack down on the dozens of states that have legalized the production, distribution, and possession of pot for medical or recreational use. In light of Trump's phone call, the senator said he has had a change of heart.
"Additionally", Gardner added, "President Trump has promised me that he will support a federalism-based legislative remedy to fix such conditions' rights difficulty once and for all".
Gardner's blockade held up the confirmations of about 20 nominees at the Justice Department. Only a fool would bet any money on it. In doing so, Sessions, who has taken a hard line against marijuana, gave federal prosecutors wide latitude to pursue criminal charges.
President Donald Trump claims he knows how to strike a deal, and that's just what he did with Senator Cory Gardner to end a months-long fight between Gardner and United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
When Trump chosen Courses, a former federal prosecutor and USA senator from Alabama, as his lawyer fundamental, marijuana supporters girded for a crackdown.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders confirmed the president Trump's action. Sessions' memo reversed Obama-era policies on recrational pot and hinted at a federal crackdown.
Bob Ferguson, the Democratic attorney general of Washington state, which permits marijuana use, said Gardner's announcement made him "cautiously optimistic" but until there is a formal agreement or law on the issue he stands ready to defend "Washington's well-regulated marijuana industry". The funding of Trump is viewed as vital.
Trump "does respect Colorado's right to decide for themselves how to best approach this issue", White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said in an interview Friday.
Trump's promise to the Senator diffuses the standoff that's been taking place between Gardner and nominees for the Justice Department. "So we're reluctant to reward that sort of behavior".
He said, "My colleagues and I are continuing to work diligently on a bipartisan legislative solution that can pass Congress and head to the President's desk to deliver on his campaign position".
A bill has not been finalized, but Gardner has been talking quietly with other senators about a legislative fix that would, in effect, make clear that the federal government can not interfere with states that have voted to legalize marijuana. He has opposed decriminalizing the substance as an elected official.
