“As voters have shifted opinions on marijuana in recent years, so have government officials, as well as the leading presidential candidates. However, Clinton appears to a more specific stance on marijuana than Trump, and doesn’t view it with much stigmatization.

Clinton has repeatedly stated that she wants to move marijuana from a Schedule I drug to a Schedule II drug, under the Controlled Substances Act, to increase research, as well as to stop imprisoning marijuana users. When asked in a town hall what she would do to decriminalize marijuana, Clinton said that she “”will do a lot.”

“I have no doubt there are very real benefits for people,” Clinton said of marijuana in a town hall in February.

Trump has offered a more cautious opinion on marijuana. He has stated that medical marijuana is something “”we should really consider strongly,”” but legalization should be left up to the states.

Trump also questioned the effectiveness of marijuana legalization in Colorado. His campaign has also implied some reservations about marijuana use during the Republican primary season.

Trump has stated that he never touches drugs, alcohol, tobacco or coffee. Clinton has said she hasn’t smoked marijuana.
