  • President Trump says he will probably support Rep. Dave Joyce's marijuana bill

Warren said the goal of the legislation is to "ensure that each state has the right to determine for itself the best approach to marijuana within its borders".

"It's time for the "Live Free Or Die" state to come out of the shadows of marijuana prohibition and catch up with our neighbors by legalizing, regulating, and restricting access of marijuana to children and young people", Woodburn said in a statement.

Because of federal regulations, most marijuana businesses are barred from traditional banks and opening lines of credit.

The legislation, which was unveiled on Thursday, will not legalize marijuana.

Earlier this year, Gardner retaliated against Sessions's attacks on legal weed by threatening to block Justice Department nominations in the Senate. During his campaign for office, Trump repeatedly said the legalization question should be left up to the states.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he will likely support a bipartisan bill in the Senate that would give states autonomy over their marijuana policy, putting himself directly at odds with his own attorney general. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Trump said, "I support Sen".

Trump made his comments to a gaggle of reporters Friday morning just before he boarded a helicopter on his way to the G-7 summit in Canada.

Massive news rocks Whittaker's UFC title fight
UFC main event fights in pay-per-view events have been dropping like flies these past few months and UFC 225 is no different. It would have been an opportunity for McGregor to win a title in a third weight class - something no UFC fighter has done.


Warren quipped they were "lining them up like Noah's Ark" - one Democrat for each Republican.

On Thursday, Gardner said he had spoken with Trump and was confident the president would sign the bill. And it's Attorney General Jeff Sessions who posses the biggest threat to the bill.

Marijuana is considered an illegal, Schedule I substance by the federal government.

In Ohio, medical marijuana is legal (although the program is not up and running yet), and there's an effort afoot to also legalize recreational marijuana. A total of 29 states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes.

The law would help cannabis companies that now function as all-cash businesses and struggle to work with banks due to federal laws. It would also legalize industrial hemp, which is used in clothing, building materials, and other products.

Sponsors said their proposal comes in response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' January decision to rescind an Obama-era memo, which directed US attorneys to not prosecute marijuana crimes in states where the drug had been legalized, as long as individuals were complying with state law, not distributing the drug to minors or selling it to criminal gangs.
