Gardner and Warren’s Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States Act is a bi-partisan bill. Warren says the proposal is generating enthusiasm across the political spectrum, giving it better odds in the Senate than usual.
Sen. Gardner has even managed to get a statement of support from President Trump. On Morning Joe, Gardner said Trump agreed there was no going back on the issue of legal cannabis. The Washington Post reported that Trump would back legislation like the STATES Act.
For his part, Sen. Gardner, a Republican, has sharply rebuked the policy shift on marijuana enforcement that Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced earlier this year. Gardner had even threatened to hold up Sessions’ justice department appointments over the AG threatening to come after states that had legalized marijuana.
