Instead, we believe that the Trump Administration will take a hands-off, allow-the-states-to-decide approach that will allow things to continue, for the most part, as they have the past several years.

Here’s a few reasons why:

First off, politics

For whatever you may think of Donald Trump, he knows how to play politics. No one can win the presidency if they don’t.

Trump Removes Marijuana Opposition from White House Website Immediately After Taking Office

Immediately after taking office yesterday President Donald Trump’s Administration removed a page on the White House’s website declaring opposition to legalizing marijuana and other drugs.

Prior to Trump taking office yesterday, there was a page on the White House’s website – under the section for the Office of National Drug Control Policy – titled “Marijuana”. The page stated that the president “steadfastly opposes legalization of marijuana and other drugs because legalization would increase the availability and use of illicit drugs, and poise significant health and safety risks to all Americans, particularly young people”.

Immediately after Trump took office yesterday, the page was promptly removed from the White House’s website. When you go to the link for the page, it says “Sorry, the page you’re looking for can’t be found.”

Petition Calls on President-Elect Donald Trump to Respect State Cannabis Laws

A petition calling on President-elect Donald Trump to respect state cannabis laws has launched on Change.org.

“Donald Trump will soon become the 45th President of the United States”, starts the petition. “Trump’s victory comes as four additional states legalize cannabis for recreational purposes, and three more states legalize cannabis for medical purposes (with a fourth voting to restore patients’ rights revoked by state lawmakers). Although Trump has given no indication he will enforce federal cannabis laws in these states, he also hasn’t made it clear that he won’t, leaving many to wonder what his plan of action (or inaction) will truly be.”

Donald Trump Wins the Presidency: What this Means for Cannabis

One of the most volatile presidential elections in recent memory is finally over. And the winner? Donald Trump.

donald trumpDonald Trump has officially reached the number of electoral votes needed to win the presidency. Trump will mark the Republican’s first return to the White House since President Bush left in 2008.

For the cannabis consumers and advocates out there, they’re probably wondering what this means for them. Well, at this point it’s hard to tell. In the past Trump has stated that he’s “100 percent” in support of medical cannabis. He’s also stated he supports state rights in regards to legalization. However, he has also spoken in strong opposition to legalizing cannabis (despite previously saying he supports legalizing all drugs), so where exactly his actual policies will land is still to be determined.

Clinton or Trump to be First President in Over 23 Years Who Hasn’t Smoked Cannabis

humWhether it’s Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump who wins the election this November, it will be the first time in over 23 years (since George Bush Sr. in 1992) that the current president of the United States has never consumed cannabis.

Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have stated that they’ve never once consumed cannabis, even in youth. This is in direct contrast to the past three presidents – Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and our current President Barrack Obama – who have all admitted to consuming cannabis in the past (with Obama also admitting to previously using cocaine).
