Trump will cripple states if he reverses marijuana legalization
Last month I gave the keynote address at the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo in New York City. CWCBExpo is the trade show for the cannabis industry. I had the pleasure of meeting thousands of like-minded cannabis activists, and the experience was truly refreshing and inspiring on many levels.
I learned firsthand that those in the legal cannabis industry — whether they're growing hemp, medical marijuana or recreational marijuana in Colorado or California or Oregon or wherever — have formed a united front. Everyone at the convention was looking to work together to come up with solutions on how to get the federal government to move forward and embrace this industry, which has grown exponentially.

Jesse Ventura Is Fighting Again--This Time, It's To Legalize Marijuana
Jesse “The Body” Ventura has been a long time supporter of marijuana legalization, but it took a seizure and medical marijuana to turn him into an advocate. Ventura didn't personally experience the seizures. It was someone close to him that suffered from seizures two to three times a week. A helpless feeling as he watched that person suffer and all he could do was hold them and wait for the seizure to run its course.
“Four different pharmaceuticals weren't working. The seizures were continuing,” he said. So he and his friend got in the car and drove to Colorado. “We had no choice.” Feeling fortunate that he had the means to go and friends in the state, he was able to get some cannabis for his friend (illegally, since they weren't residents) and it worked. “This person hasn't had a seizure since,” said Ventura.

Gov. Chris Christie is vehemently opposed to legalizing marijuana and he has six months left on his final term. And the election for governor will matter for supporters of legalizing pot: Democratic candidate Phil Murphy supports legalization but Republican candidate Kim Guadagno does not.
Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Union), the bill's sponsor, said he wants to begin the discussion now to build support among his colleagues in the legislature and across the state.
