ABOVE VIDEO: Curbelo Discusses His Views on Federal Marijuana Policy on “Cannabis Economy”
(SUNSHINE STATE NEWS) – U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., continued his efforts to ensure marijuana policy is left to the states.
Earlier this month, Curbelo appeared on the “Cannabis Economy” podcast with Seth Adler and he called on the Trump administration to leave marijuana to the states.
“As far as Carlos Curbelo is concerned, way back in January, when the attorney general rescinded the Cole Memos, what was your reaction?” Adler asked.
“Extreme disappointment,” Curbelo said. “I had a lot of faith that the president wanted to keep his promise during the campaign, that he would leave this issue to the states, which is where it belongs. And I wouldn’t say I was necessarily surprised, given the attorney general’s history on the issue and his past statements, but many people are under the impression that he acted unilaterally and really without any strong supporter indications from the White House.”
“So many people like me or many people here in Washington?” Adler asked.
“Here in Washington too,” Curbelo answered. “I mean there is a strong bipartisan majority here in the Congress that rejects that decision and that supports rational policies regarding marijuana.”
