President Trump Says Marijuana Legalization Up to States. Reiterating a stance he has held since the 2016 presidential campaign [Ed: One of Trump's few consistent stances. - DB], President Donald Trump last Friday said the White House would not interfere with state-level legalization efforts. "We're going to see what's going on. It's a very big subject and right now we are allowing states to make that decision. A lot of states are making that decision, but we're allowing states to make that decision," he said in response to a reporter's question.

Minnesota Democrats Begin Legalization Push. Using the state fair in St. Paul as a venue, state Democratic leaders vowed to legalize marijuana next year and announced a series of town halls across the state to see what Minnesotans think about the issue. "We believe that Minnesota can have the best marijuana laws in the country," said House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler (D-Golden Valley), who handed out blue cowbells inscribed with the words "Be Heard on Cannabis" to fairgoers. "We think it's vitally important that Minnesotans weigh in directly on this policy change."

DEA Arrests 300 in Massive Florida Opioid Operation. In an enforcement operation late last week named "Operation Cazador," DEA agents in Florida arrested nearly 300 people, seized roughly 200,000 opioid pills and about $3.3 million in assets, and shut down a dozen pharmacies. The operation included roughly 50 search warrants on pharmacies, 25 interviews with physicians, and interdiction of a small number of UPS and FedEx packages.

The move is seen as an effort to promote the development of marijuana products for medicinal purposes. Medical use and research was legalized last year.

his approach to medical weed isn't so states rights

the feds are persisting in the claim that cannabis has zero medicinal use and is highly dangerous, so states still can't allow cannabis to be prescribed. trump lied his head off when he said he was 100% for medicinal weed. Cannabis still has third class medical status everywhere in the country, despite science, trump's promise, absolutely overwhelming public opinion, and many states wishes..
