Two provinces, Manitoba and Quebec, plan to prohibit homegrown marijuana. "They hurt businesses who are in the marijuana business from getting access to banking services".

In scrapping what's known as the Cole memo, Sessions unilaterally determined that the federal government should have the authority to crack down on marijuana sales.

While running for president, Trump repeatedly said that he believed marijuana legalization should be up to states.

The legislative proposal, which is also championed by Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, would reshape the legal landscape for marijuana.

Trump had indicated on the 2016 campaign trail that he'd support states' laws on cannabis.
