US President, Trump, Gets Tough on Pot


INTERNATIONAL NEWS – After five more states have legalized the use of marijuana on January 1, President Trump is getting tougher on the drug.

The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday rescinded an Obama administration policy that had eased enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized the drug, instead giving federal prosecutors wide latitude on pursuing criminal charges.
