Senator Gardner Receives Commitment from President Trump to Protect States’ Rights Regarding Legal Marijuana Industry

Washington, DC...Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today released the below statement regarding the current status of the Administration’s policy toward legal marijuana. In response to the Department of Justice’s January 4th announcement that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had rescinded the Cole Memorandum, Senator Gardner placed a hold on all DOJ nominees until he received a commitment that Colorado’s rights would not be infringed. After positive discussions with DOJ, Gardner lifted some of his holds but kept the rest in place until he received a full commitment that the guidelines of the Cole Memo would be respected.




“Since the campaign, President Trump has consistently supported states’ rights to decide for themselves how best to approach marijuana,” said Gardner. “Late Wednesday, I received a commitment from the President that the Department of Justice’s rescission of the Cole memo will not impact Colorado’s legal marijuana industry. Furthermore, President Trump has assured me that he will support a federalism-based legislative solution to fix this states’ rights issue once and for all.

“Because of these commitments, I have informed the Administration that I will be lifting my remaining holds on Department of Justice nominees. My colleagues and I are continuing to work diligently on a bipartisan legislative solution that can pass Congress and head to the President’s desk to deliver on his campaign position.”

###

Cory Gardner is a member of the U.S. Senate serving Colorado. He sits on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee, and the Budget Committee, and is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.

    Subject: Ban Committee News - Update  Possible Federal Involvement

    Friends,
     
    Reading an online debate with anti-pot people around the country, I responded to some of my friends in CALM, our state organization.  Apparently, Dave Evans, a DC attorney and someone with access to AG Sessions, read my letter (actually it was a rant).  Within minutes I received a response from him offering to carry our story forward to federal officials.  I don’t know if it will result in much, but a ‘maybe’ is always miles ahead of a ‘no’.  I include my letter and the response from Dave as follows:
     
    Bill
     
    This is dreadful. I agree we cannot give them an inch.
     
    Will you please write this up for me? I will see to it that the top pot guy at DOJ gets it and others who have access.
     
    Photos will really help.
     
    Remember that anything sent to DOJ can be obtained by the pot industry under the Freedom of Information Act. If you do not want to identify yourself I will provide an affidavit to them that this is a genuine document. If you authorize me to do it as your attorney then the attorney client privilege will apply. 
     
    Dave

    All,

    My name is Bill McManus and I have been battling pot in Calaveras County for over three years.  I am a ZERO TOLERANCE activist to rid our county of all commercial cultivation of pot.  I know we have to deal with PROP 64, but even that law allows for banning outdoor grows based on a county's jurisdiction to regulate land use.  I have seen this criminal enterprise up close and personal.  Hundreds, if not thousands of residents are considering leaving our county because of the abuse of the pot cartels.  I myself have been assaulted twice and had both of my vechicles vandalized.  One thing is crystal clear, if you allow any of it, you get all of it and according to the latest info from Central Valley HIDTA, Calaveras county is rivaling the Emerald Triangle for illegal pot production.  Our small county has somewhere between 1500 and 2000 illegal grows.  It has brought a  400% increase in pot related crimes over the past two years.  The DA is currently handling 10 pot related homicides.  We have had human trafficking problems, illegal timber harvests, illegal grading, illegal stream diversions, water theft, destroyed rural roads from water trucks hauling stolen water out to pot grows, one family in the Federal Witness Protection Program because the husband serviced porta potties at a pot grow.........the list goes on and on.  If you want to see the ugly side of the pot cartels, give me a call. I will show you what is going on and introduce you to people who are afraid to leave their homes because of nearby pot grows.  Identified cartels in this county include, Hmongs, Motorcycle gangs from the valley, Mexican mafia, Russian mafia, Jamacan Cartels, Asian cartels, and refugee cartels from the Emerald Triangle.  BAN it, BAN it all.  If even one hair's breath of opening is given to them, you will LOSE the battle, your lifestyles, your security in your home, and all sense of community.
    Sorry for my rant (not really), but that is the real, on the ground truth.  I can be reached at 209.768.8549.  Grab a flak vest and come visit Calaveras County.  By the way, county Code Compliance officials are not allowed to enter any pot grow without a sheriff escort......what about the citizens who remain behind after the inspections?
    Bill McManus

    PS:  don't contact me regarding compromise......the IS the hill I will die on.

      What is really being revealed is that between mining, grapes, and Marijuana our whole county is one big poison super fund site now. It all needs to be cleaned up, and more damaging pollution should not be allowed. Well...at least maybe most newcomers will move out, and more will not come.
