Marijuana retail stores will likely open in the state in early 2018. "The prospect of Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie as attorney general does not bode well", Nadelmann told the Post in an interview.

Northern California farmers said they hoped Trump would recognize the business benefits of legalized pot and leave alone the states where it is allowed.

Along with Trump, pot emerged as the big victor on Tuesday.

Though some insist to reform the laws of marijuana, Arizona was one of the first states to vote against the measure, the voters of the state have rejected the idea of legalizing pot as per the Guardian. Voters in Arkansas, Florida, Montana, and North Dakota supported medical marijuana. With three states voting "yes" to recreational use and three voting "yes" to medical use, it looks like it's happening quickly and could be a packaging opportunity sooner rather than later. In Maine, a vote to legalize recreational marijuana appears to have narrowly passed.

"We will redouble our efforts with this new Congress", Sabet said. As that movement continues, the pressure on the federal government to act to solve the marijuana banking dilemma increases.

The question had divided the medical marijuana caregiver community, with some concerned that their niche market will suffer under the weight of a big new system.

"The positions of Clinton and Trump were very similar", he said. The Drug Enforcement Administration declared earlier this year that marijuana has no medicinal goal and declined to remove it from its schedule of the most unsafe drugs. That's something that no USA president has ever suggested, and Trump has made no similar proposal. More than a third of patients registered in September left over the next month - 7,785 remained in October, according to the state health department.

In 1990, he called for legalizing all drugs, a position he no longer holds.
