At a press conference on Thursday White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer suggested that the Trump administration is about to step up enforcement of federal laws against recreational Cannabis.
Spicer said “I do believe you will see greater enforcement” adding “exact policy is a question for the Department of Justice” (read, Jeff Sessions).
I am not one to preach fear or hate. But as Idaho’s Cannabis community we need to be really upset about this. I would like to point out a couple of things about the Trump administration so far.
Trump is doing EXACTLY what he said he is going to do. Nothing more or less.
He said he’s going to build a wall, he’s building a wall. He said he’s going to get rid of illegal immigrants, he’s trying his God damn best to deport them all. He put in Betsy DeVos to gut our eduction. He put in the ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to make America dependent on oil again.
Trump was specifically ambiguous about Cannabis. Then once he was elected, he put in Jeff Sessions. I had hoped that Trump had put in Jeff for reasons other than Cannabis and that the Trump administration would focus on states right.
I was wrong. Not that I was for Trump in the first place, but I just didn’t think he would do something as idiotic as going against the wishes of over 100 million Americans. I had hoped that Trump would focus on states rights.
Trump does believe in Cannabis’s ability to “comfort” people suffering from debilitating disease.
This is the silver lining. Sean Spicer telegraphed that the administration won’t take a
“get-tough” approach against medical marijuana, saying Trump believes in its ability to “comfort” people suffering from debilitating diseases.
We need to continue to push for Medical Cannabis in Idaho. As terrible as the Trump administration going after recreational Cannabis in our neighboring states like Oregon & Washington, we finally for the first time in history have a president who is “for” Medical Cannabis.
So come out and collect signatures. Donate. Share information. SPEAK UP. Get involved and help Idaho legalize Medical Cannabis.
