According to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif, the White House is planning on tackling cannabis reform after the midterm elections.
Rohrabacher shared with FOX Business that the Trump administration has made "solid commitments" to fix marijuana regulation. “I have been talking to people inside the White House who know and inside the president’s entourage... I have talked to them at length. I have been reassured that the president intends on keeping his campaign promise.”
Rohrabacher says the president has spoken in support of legalizing medical marijuana on the federal level - and leaving the question of recreational marijuana use up to the states.
“I would expect after the election we will sit down and we’ll start hammering out something that is specific and real,” he said. “It could be as early as spring of 2019, but definitely in the next legislative session."
