Donald Trump: I Will Legalize Marijuana in all 50 States

Analysis:

Stories doing rounds online since mid July 2016 claim that Donald Trump has said he will Legalize Marijuana in all 50 States of America, the claim spread wide and became popular after he was elected as the U.S. President in November. Although Trump made statements in favour of Marijuana use in the past, the claims that he said he will legalize it in all 50 states of America are not facts.

Origin of Claim

In July 2016 Your News Wire website yournewswire.com published an article with a title “Trump: I Will Legalize Marijuana In All 50 States,” and went on to explain that Trump is the Presidential candidate most likely to ensure marijuana will be legalized across the country. The article mentions couple of his supportive views on medical Marijuana use in the past and his business tactics against illegal Drug lords. In a news interview, Trump is also heard saying the legalization of Marijuana drug use should be left to decision of individual states. The story was republished by few other online outlets later and became popular after Trump became President.

Actual Facts

It was back in 1990 that Donald Trump told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that US drug enforcement is ‘a joke’ and all drugs should be legalized to ‘take the profit away from these drug czars.’ He also added that tax revenues from a legalized drug trade could be used to educate the public on the dangers of drugs. Again, Trump saying the legalization of Marijuana drug use should be left to decision of individual states happened in a 2015 news interview, before he became U.S. President. More importantly, in Liability disclaimer information mentioned in their website’s terms of use, Your News Wire say that they disclaim all kinds of warranties of their content, information and products provided on their website. Note, the website earlier reported hoax stories like Russia Put Black Lives Matter on Official ‘Terror List’ and Kurt Cobain Predicted Donald Trump Presidency Back in 1993.

So the stories that Donald Trump said he will legalize Marijuana in all 50 states of America are hoaxes. As of this writing, after he became President, Trump did not make any official statement on legalization of Marijuana use.

Hoax or Fact:
