White House to unveil federal cannabis reform ‘very soon,’ says GOP lawmaker


(October 11, 2018)  The White House is planning on tackling cannabis reform after the midterm elections, according to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif.

Rohrabacher tells FOX Business that the Trump administration has made a “solid commitment” 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.

The California congressman, who is up for re-election this November, is battling to hold onto a seat that national Democrats have identified as part of their strategy to win the House majority this midterm election.

Rohrabacher faces Democrat Harley Rouda. RealClearPolitics has listed the seat that Rohrabacher has held for five years as a toss-up – and the polling average has both candidates in a dead heat – with both at 48 percent of voter support.

Recreational marijuana was just recently legalized in California this year – but reforms on the federal level have been stalled for decades. Yet, according to Rohrabacher, that will soon change: “It could be as early as spring of 2019, but definitely in the next legislative session.”

  1. Horseshit. Rohrabacher is behind in the polls and very likely will lose the election in California’s 48th District to Harley Rouda, and is scrounging up votes where ever he can find them. Where’s the verification? There isn’t any. This is being widely circulated by politically uninformed, one issue stoners who are being played for fools. I don’t anything about the kid on Marijuana Moments who wrote this thing up but either he’s complicit or he’s as dumb as a fence post.

    I love PMC but occasionally you really step in it. Please do your research and please do not fall for this scam.

    Love and Best Wishes, Glenn & Bev
