Donald Trump Marijuana Policy Project

Marijuana Policy Project on Donald Trump

Businessman and television personality Donald Trump announced he is running for president on June 16, 2015.

Where does he stand?

In 1990, Trump said he favored legalizing all drugs, but more recently he has said he opposes legalizing and regulating marijuana for adult use. He supports legal access to medical marijuana, and he has indicated support for letting states set their own marijuana policies.

What has he said?

“I’d say [regulating marijuana] is bad. Medical marijuana is another thing, but I think it’s bad and I feel strongly about that.”

In response to states’ rights argument: “If they vote for it, they vote for it. But, you know, they’ve got a lot of problems going on in Colorado right now. Big problems. But I think, medical marijuana, 100%.” C-SPAN, February 27, 2015

“We’re losing badly the War on Drugs. You have to legalize drugs to win that war. You have to take the profit away from these drug czars.” Miami Herald, April 14, 1990
