Whether President Trump would support cannabis banking reform is at the center of a D.C. dust-up.
- Pro-legalization Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) has suggested Trump supports bank access.
- But White House Chief of Staff, former Congressman Mark Meadows, told reporter Matt Laslo that Gardner has been “misleading voters.”
- Trump, Meadows said, “has no plan to lift a finger on cannabis legalization or even normalization.”
