NJCBA statement on President Trump indicating support for Gardner/Warren legislation

New Jersey CannaBusiness Association President Scott Rudder issued the following statement today regarding President Trump indicating he will support legislation by Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that would exempt state-legal cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act:

“This is certainly welcome news as New Jersey looks to expand our medical cannabis program and take the next step towards legalization of adult-use recreational cannabis. How this issue is handled has always been considered a matter for individual states to decide and I am glad the President agrees.

“One of the arguments against cannabis prohibition in New Jersey has been uncertainty over what Washington will do regarding federal enforcement.  This should clear up and remove that hurdle, allowing us to focus on the numerous, clear-cut reasons why legalization in New Jersey should happen and happen now.”
