Mark Dayton, a Democrat, has been invited to attend a conference in Palm Beach, Florida, sponsored by the state’s recreational marijuana industry.
Dayton has said he will be in Florida for the first time on April 13, the day of the state legislative session.
Dayton, who is also a member of the U.S. House, is the first sitting governor to attend the gathering.
It is the third-largest conference for marijuana businesses in the U, and the first for the Trump administration.
The U. S. Justice Department has announced that it will not prosecute anyone who grows or uses marijuana in state-sanctioned facilities, a move that could further ease the legal marijuana market.
Dayton is also set to meet with Republican Gov.
Rick Scott and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who served as Trump’s 2016 vice presidential running mate.
In addition to the Florida meeting, Dayton is scheduled to travel to Denver and Las Vegas, and meet with Colorado Gov.
John Hickenlooper, who has indicated he may sign a medical marijuana law that would allow the recreational use of marijuana.
The meeting is the latest development in a push by the Trump campaign to promote the legalization of marijuana, a contentious issue that has gained traction in recent years as voters have approved medical and recreational marijuana.
Trump, in a recent speech in Colorado, said the “political correctness” of the marijuana industry is causing a “medicalized crisis.”
