Democratic Candidates — South Bend, Indiana’s Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a rival Democratic presidential candidate, has endorsed simply decriminalizing possession of all drugs[2].

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, another contender, supports decriminalizing opioids and funding safe consumption sites for illegal drugs. He also wants to make psychedelic mushrooms “more freely available.”[3][4]

Those candidates and most other Democrats including Senators Warren and Sanders also support legalizing marijuana — with the exceptions of former Vice President Joe Biden[5] and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg[6], who back more modest steps such as removing criminal penalties for possession and expunging past records.

President Trump has never openly supported marijuana legalization. However, back in September[7], of 19, he did say that he had no objection to US states legalizing forms of marijuana. In fact, he stated his administration would leave legalization decisions to the individual states. However, last month, Trump shared some conflicting views on medical marijuana legalization.

Let’s take a look.

ON DEC 21st Trump challenged Congress on medical marijuana

When he discussed his resistance to marijuana legalization. He stated that — — if required, he would ignore Congress’s protection laws for marijuana in each state.

AS we know…..In the US, marijuana is federally illegal. However, the Trump administration has allowed legalization on a state level. Congress has passed a bill that would prohibit federal interference in certain states. Under this reform, federal authorities cannot interfere, arrest, or prosecute people for marijuana possession in states where marijuana is legal. — -It’s this reform that Trump said he could — -ignore.

What about the Congress — Since the House has a Democrat majority, it has more support for legalization. On the other hand, the Senate has a Republican majority. — — Therefore, it rejects most legalization bills.

In October, Newsweek discussed[8] the House passing a reform to protect legal cannabis companies from federal interference, especially while obtaining US banking services. Another reform was the SAFE [9](Secure and Fair Enforcement) Act, designed to protect US banks providing financial help to cannabis companies[10].

And last[11] month, Newsweek stated that the House and Senate had introduced a reform that would “protect veterans who are legally employed by the cannabis industry from discrimination at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs when applying for home loans.” However, the Senate declined it, and instead introduced an anti-cannabis rule.[12] This new rule would not let Washington, DC, legalize cannabis[13] or even reduce the criminal penalties for marijuana possession.

The Democrats’ many bills and reforms in support of marijuana legalization have been opposed by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell[14].
