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.

Some try to predict the future by reading tea leaves, but Bill Maher turned to a different type of leaf to figure out who would be the ultimate candidate for the 2020 election.

Like many pundits, Maher has obsessed over this question ever since Trump's surprise win over Hilary Clinton in 2016.
