President Trump Says He Would Support Bill Protecting States With Legalized Marijuana

Yesterday Senators Cory Gardner and Elizabeth Warren introduced a bill that would protect states with legalized marijuana, but many wondered if it actually has a chance to become law. Well according to President Donald Trump, it does.

Trump spoke to the press before leaving for a G7 summit in Canada when a reporter asked if the president supports Gardner and Warren's bill. Trump replied that he does.

"I really do. I support Senator Gardner,” Trump said. "I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.”

On one hand, the president is saying he supports Gardner's bill and that he will probably end up signing it, which is definitely a good sign. 

However, Trump's history with marijuana is quite questionable. In the past he's said he supports medical marijuana and for states to make their own marijuana laws. But as president, he's made virtually no statements about the issue and appointed Jeff Sessions, one of America's most notorious anti-marijuana politicians, as his Attorney General.

The most likely scenario is Trump will support whatever the Republican Party decides to do with Gardner's bill. If they pass it, he'll happily sign it. But if they don't, he'll probably just continue ignoring the issue like he's done since taking office.

On his nightly talk series, Fox News host Tucker Carlson defended his now-viral freakout during an unaired interview, which has since generated a great deal of attention online. Carlson has risen to fame thanks to his undeniable knack for getting under the skin of liberals and progressives.
