Despite President Trump’s public support of state-regulated legal cannabis, documents reveal he had convened a secret anti-cannabis effort to combat public support for marijuana reform efforts across the country.

The group, reportedly named the Marijuana Policy Coordination Committee, has been instructed by the White House to gather data demonstrating the most significant negative trends related to cannabis legalization.

The committee memo noted that the current national dialogue on pot is one-sided and needed to be counterbalanced with negative information “on marijuana threats.”

To accomplish their goal, President Trump ordered the DEA and 14 other agencies to portray marijuana in a negative light, no matter what the data said.
