Don Murphy, the conservative outreach director of the Marijuana Policy Project, lauded the bill, calling it the "most significant piece of marijuana-related legislation ever introduced in Congress". Cory Gardner and Massachusetts Democratic Sen.

"I really do. I support Sen". "We're looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes".

For his part, Sessions told Colorado Public Radio that he was excluded from conversations between Trump and Gardner. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has also reportedly promised to permit a vote on the legislation. The Kentucky Republican has consistently opposed legalizing marijuana but has called hemp and marijuana "two entirely separate plants".

The bipartisan bill would amend the Controlled Substances Act to include a framework that says it no longer applies to those following state, territory or tribal laws "relating to the manufacture, production, possession, distribution, dispensation, administration, or delivery of [marijuana]".

Co-sponsored by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Legal recreational marijuana has been approved in nine states and Washington, D.C., which continues to ban sales, unlike the state programs.

"Our Founders intended the states to be laboratories of democracy and many states right now find themselves deep in the heart of that laboratory".

Trump's embrace of the bill is just another blow to his attorney general, who has been a longtime opponent of marijuana.

"Thanks to the Attorney General, more people feel the urgency of the moment in changing federal law on marijuana", Warren said.

California, home to one in eight Americans, launched the nation's largest legal marijuana marketplace on January 1 but thousands of businesses that have been licensed are still facing the threat of federal prosecution.

Because of that, marijuana companies have several financial obstacles, including the inability to use banks. In California, for example, paying taxes and other transactions are often carried out in cash, sometimes in vast amounts.

The bill includes language meant to address financial issues caused by the federal ban.
