Thursday Donald Trump showed his change of opinion on the marijuana debate, according to Leafly News. He spoke to hundreds at a political rally in Nevada, telling them of his support for medical marijuana, and recreational marijuana on a state-by-state basis.

“In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state,” Trump said.


This is the second time Trump has changed his opinion about legalizing marijuana. Initially, he supported the cause, saying America should end the War On Drugs. Until a few weeks ago, when he pointed out the problems Colorado has faced since legalization.
