Gardner said he and his colleagues are working on a bill that would prevent the federal government from interfering in states' marijuana legalization.

Other marijuana supporters were wary given the president's record of reversing positions and pledges of legislative support. Cory Gardner, a Republican, said he'd received an assurance from the president on the states' rights' issue earlier this week. "This reckless plan will not go unanswered". "I am a states person, it must be up to the nations, perfectly", he told a television interviewer in Colorado this year.

Nonetheless, a 12 months earlier at CPAC (Conservative Political Movement Conference) in Maryland, Trump had talked about he supported medical marijuana nevertheless known as leisure pot "harmful". "They've got a lot of problems going on right now in Colorado - some big problems", Trump said then.

In a comment to the Washington Post on Friday, Trump's legislative affairs director, Marc Short said that the president, "does respect Colorado's right to decide for themselves how to best approach this issue", adding that he doesn't want this to seem like the president has caved to Gardner's demands, "we're reluctant to reward that sort of behavior". Attorney General Jeff Sessions instead directed us attorneys to use prosecutorial discretion.

In retaliation, " Gardner used his ability as a senator to stop consideration of any nominees to that division of Justice - yet another extraordinary measure for a senator to use contrary to an administration run by an individual member of the party. On Friday, Gardner said he was releasing his hold entirely.

President Donald Trump has signaled to Sen.

Marijuana has been fully legalized in eight states, and 24 states allow some form of marijuana use.

Recently, Gardner and Justice officials have been in discussions for months to get the holds lifted.

President Trump was reportedly so enraged by an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of his personal attorney's office and hotel that he is now on the brink of firing Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general he appointed, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Democratic US Representative Earl Blumenauer of OR, another state with permissive marijuana laws, expressed skepticism, saying, "Trump changes his mind constantly".

The action came amid widespread speculation that Trump will remove Justice officials overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.
