President Trump pledges to support states’ rights to legal marijuana, in a blow to Attorney General Sessions

Trump announced Wednesday that he will back congressional efforts to protect states' rights to legal marijuana, according to a Republican senator.

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner said Trump promised over the phone that a memo Sessions issued last year won't affect his home state. The memo sought to reverse Obama-era policies on recreational pot and hinted at a federal crackdown.

"Late Wednesday, I received a commitment from the President that the Department of Justice's rescission of the Cole memo will not impact Colorado's legal marijuana industry," Gardner said in a statement Friday. "Furthermore, President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states' rights issue once and for all."

"Because of these commitments, I have informed the administration that I will be lifting my remaining holds on Department of Justice nominees," Gardner said.

Sessions did not react publically to the development, but a source familiar with the matter told the Daily News that the Justice Department had not been consulted before Trump's phone call.
