‘Marijuana Moment’ publisher Tom Angell tweeted today about the impact of impeached president Donald Trump’s new budget on marijuana law in America.
Tom points out that the new Trump budget would:
• End state medical cannabis protections
• Keep blocking DC from legalizing marijuana sales
• Gut White House drug czar’s office
• Fund FDA “regulation of cannabis and cannabis derivatives”
• Support hemp implementation.
Here’s an excerpt from Kyle Jaeger’s analysis for marijuanamoment.net:
President Trump proposed ending an existing policy that protects state medical marijuana programs from Justice Department interference as part of his fiscal year 2021 budget plan released on Monday.
The rider, which has been renewed in appropriations legislation every year since 2014, stipulates the the Justice Department can’t use its funds to prevent states or territories “from implementing their own laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.”
This isn’t the first time that an administration has requested that the rider be stricken. Trump’s last two budgets omitted the medical cannabis protections language, and President Obama similarly asked for the policy to be removed. In all cases, Congress has ignored those requests and renewed the protections in spending bills.

The bummers of adulthood are too many to count, but one of our least favorites is the inability to sit down and enjoy a nice bowl of cereal. When you’ve got a long commute ahead, let’s face it: That extra time it takes to pour the milk and chow down is too precious to spare. […]
