During today’s White House Daily Press Briefing, President Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed that Trump is a “firm believer” in states’ rights.
During the briefing the very first question related to transgender bathroom laws: “Can you give us an update on the administrations plans with regards to transgender bathrooms?”, the reporter asked.
Spicer replied by stating that the president is “a firm believer in states rights”. He ends his answer by claiming that “certain issues like this are not best dealt with at the federal level”
Although the question had nothing to do with marijuana, Trump continuing to be a “firm believer” in states’ rights on this issue is a good indication that he’ll take the same approach in regards to state-level cannabis laws.
