Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, has flip-flopped somewhat on this issue throughout his public life.
Recently, Trump has supported state’s rights to choose how to legislate medical marijuana, but has not expressly called for legalization.
“In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state,” Trump told The Washington Post. “… Marijuana is such a big thing. I think medical should happen — right? Don’t we agree? I think so. And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states.”
He has also expressed support for medical marijuana, telling Bill O’Reilly in February that he’s, “in favor of medical marijuana 100%.”
“I know people that have serious problems and they did that they really — it really does help them,” Trump said.
