Donald Trump is the Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential election and as of November 8th, the new elected President. So what does our next President of the United States think about legalizing marijuana?

In recent interviews, Trump has stated that “I support legal access to medical marijuana, and believe states should be able to set their own marijuana policies with regard to adult use.” In other words, Trump is more in support of legalizing medical marijuana however is not in favor of a nation wide legalization policy. So what we can expect to see in the near future is maybe a more lenient policy on using marijuana for medical purposes. He believes that allowing recreational use is a state-by-state issue, and will let those states decide for themselves if they want to make possession legal.
