Gardner and Warren, both supporters of marijuana legalization by states, developed the bill in response to Sessions' action.

Friday morning, prior to departing on his trip to the G-7 summit in Canada, President Trump told reporters he would likely support a congressional effort to end the federal ban on marijuana.

MA U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren joined a Colorado Republican on Thursday to roll out federal legislation that would resolve much of the tension between the federal prohibition on marijuana and the growing pot industries in states that have voted to legalize marijuana.

Elizabeth Warren crafted legislation that would allow states to make the final decision on whether or not pot will be legal.

Because of federal regulations, most marijuana businesses are barred from traditional banks and opening lines of credit.

"That forces a multi-billion dollar industry to operate all in cash, that's bad for business and bad for safety", said Sen. "They also prevent businesses who are in the marijuana business from getting access to banking services".
