The White House will take up the task of tackling cannabis reform once the midterm elections are over. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher from R-Calif reported that the government is very serious towards fixing the marijuana regulations and bring a reform very soon.
I have been talking to people inside the White House who know and inside the president’s entourage… I have talked to them at length. I have been reassured that the president intends on keeping his campaign promise.
It is also reported that the President had been talking about making the medical marijuana legal on the federal level. Further, the use of recreational marijuana will be left to the states to decide.
President Trump said,
I would expect after the election we will sit down and we’ll start hammering out something that is specific and real.
Currently, the California Congressman is focusing on elections in order to hold onto a seat which the National Democrats are after in order to gain majority in the House during the midterm elections.
Rohrabacher will be facing Democrat Harley Rouda in these elections. The seat held by Rohrabacher is listed as a toss-up by RealClearPolitics. According to the polling average, both the candidates have 48% of the voter support.
In California, recreational marijuana has been legalized this year itself after delaying reforms for several decades. However, it may not stay for long and change soon. Rohrabacher said,
It could be as early as spring of 2019, but definitely in the next legislative session.
We will have to wait and see how the marijuana reforms take shape after the midterm elections are through. But at the moment, President Trump is busy with the midterm elections that require his undeterred attention. Don’t forget to share!
