President Trump likely to support ending federal ban on marijuana

As reported by the Los Angeles Times:

“I support Sen. Gardner,” Trump said when asked about the bill. “I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes.”

This is the right thing to do on so many levels.  This always should have been a state by state decision.  It’s smart politically, as many centrists and libertarians will wholeheartedly support this.  And it’s good economically; tax it and make up for shortfalls in each state’s budget.  The number of lives ruined for non violent drug offenses and the over-crowding of prisons is a whole other issue.  One of these days I’ll do an entire piece on for-profit prisons in this regard.
