Vice News: Trump now has a Tennessee weed bill with his name on it

The Tennessee Responsible Use of Medicinal Plants Act, or the TRUMP Act, was pushed by Republican State Representative Bryan Terry and State Senator Steve Dickerson, the Times Free Press in Tennessee reports. Though the duo lost a bid to pass a medical marijuana bill during this year’s General Assembly, they’re hoping the newly-retooled TRUMP Act will expand medical research and effectively legalize cannabis extracts under medical supervision.

From The Times Free Press:

NASHVILLE - Heartened by President Donald Trump's recent comments about marijuana, two Tennessee lawmakers who are physicians plan to renew efforts next year to legalize medical cannabis and are naming the bill after the president.

I like the fact that they are both physicians. Hopefully, the name change will go over big with the Republicans in Tennessee. These lawmaking docs are certainly using psychology to flatter the orange shitgibbon. Trump might even endorse it! I hope it works.

2. Legalizing anything creates financial winners

medical supervision will make a lot of money for someone

greatest financial windfall from legalization since ... mainstream porn?
