On the night of April 11, 2018, Trump and Gardner had a telephone conversation in which the president contradicted the Sessions memo, telling the senator from Colorado - where marijuana has been legalized for adult-use since 2014 - would not be subjected to a federal crackdown on cannabis.

It marked the latest flip by the president who pledged while he was campaigning to respect states that legalized marijuana but also criticized legalization and implied it should be stopped.

Mr. Gardner held up the nominees after Attorney-General Jeff Sessions rescinded an earlier Justice Department memo that shielded marijuana operations in states such as Colorado from enforcement of the federal ban on the drug.

Gardner noted that Trump had stated during his campaign that he had supported states' rights to decide how to approach marijuana.

"Furthermore", Gardner added, "President Trump has assured me that he'll help a federalism-based legislative decision to restore this states' rights scenario as quickly as and for all".

Gardner has been working with other Senators quietly about pushing for a legislative fix that would completely bar the federal government from interfering with states that have legalized marijuana or have voted to do so.

Marijuana legalization advocates were ebullient. "This is one more step toward ending the irrational policy of marijuana prohibition, not only in Colorado but throughout the country".

Nonetheless, a 12 months earlier at CPAC (Conservative Political Movement Conference) in Maryland, Trump had talked about he supported medical marijuana nevertheless known as leisure pot "harmful".

Marijuana is legal for medicinal use in 29 states and for recreational use in eight. "They have a lot of issues going on at this time in Colorado - several big problems", Trump said.

When Trump selected Sessions, a former federal prosecutor and USA senator from Alabama, as his attorney general, marijuana supporters girded for a crackdown. However, Gardner mentioned he had been promised by Sessions he'd do absolutely nothing to interfere with the robust bud market of Colorado.

Gardner talked about he was blindsided when Courses made his announcement in January referring to pot prosecutions.

Some of Gardner's fellow GOP senators groused at the impact of the hold, and Gardner allowed some nominees to proceed in a "good-faith" gesture last month. On Friday, he said he was fully releasing his holds on Department of Justice nominations. Replacements of any of those officials would require new nominations.

Mr. Gardner said that as a result of Mr. Trump's assurances he'll end a blockade of Justice Department nominees. Sessions and also Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the official supervising the Russian Federation probe that has been the aim of the ire of Trump has been met with by Gardner.
