Anti-Cannabis Rep. Now Has Trump’s Ear as Chief of Staff

Share:

It was announced on Friday that President Trump was replacing acting White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, with Mark Meadows, a Republican representative from North Carolina. And, as reported in Forbes, this puts a fierce anti-marijuana crusader as close as can be to the President. During his time as a congressman, Meadows consistently voted against any bill that provided for a lessening of drug war policies or gave states the right to enact their own cannabis legalization.

Mark Meadows and Trump

Among the policies Meadows has advocated for was the rescinding of Obama-era policies meant to protect states that have legalized cannabis from federal interference. Meadows also voted for bills meant to protect children and families relying on CBD-only state laws from DOJ prosecution, and amendments to allow military veterans to get medical marijuana recommendations from their VA doctors. He even voted in 2019 to block an amendment meant to make it easier for scientists to research psychedelics.

    MARK MEADOWS IS NOT NEEDED IN THE WHITE HOUSE UNLESS HE KEEPS HIS OPINIONS TO HIM SELF.
    MEADOWS DON’T MESS WITH OUR MEDS. LEAVE US THE HELL ALONE. WE’ll not demand your resignation.
