President Trump said Friday that he would “probably” support an effort to end the federal ban on marijuana.

The Los Angeles Times reports that when Trump was asked about Republican Utah Sen. Cory Gardner’s support for a bill that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, he said, “I support Sen. Gardner.”

“I know exactly what he’s doing. We’re looking at it. But I probably will end up supporting that, yes,” he added.
