Marijuana Industry Relieved After Sessions Signals No Looming Pot Crackdown

Quote:The marijuana industry is feeling some relief after Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and signaled he will leave state pot laws alone.

The news helped calm the marijuana industry that was growing increasingly anxious over the rhetoric used by Sessions, which implied a looming federal crackdown. He said in February, “there’s more violence around marijuana than one would think, and there’s big money involved.”

“While we still don’t know exactly how closely the administration will stick to President Trump’s clear campaign pledges to respect state marijuana laws, this is a positive signal,” Tom Angell, chairman of the Marijuana Majority, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The fact is, legalization is working well in states that have enacted it, and a growing majority of the public supports ending prohibition.”

Sessions is currently reviewing the Cole Memorandum, a set of guidelines established in 2013 that direct DOJ to focus marijuana enforcement efforts on violent crimes and distribution in states without legalization laws. He allegedly told the governors Wednesday that the memo is, “not too far from good policy,” according to The Denver Post.

“It would be a huge mistake — policy-wise and politically — for the Justice Department to try to reverse the course of history on marijuana, and it seems like the attorney general might be starting to realize it,”

There is no going back, pot prohibition is nearly over.

We've had a couple threads about his stance on MJ.
As he found out the cats out of the bag on that prohibition scam, and you certainly can't put it back in.

I'd have to agree that's coming to an end. He's spent his life enforcing pointless laws, he's not going to stop that.

Lawmakers at the Federal level just need to let the States handle individual policies like alcohol and tobacco.

The entire west coast from Alaska to Cali is legal, I can't believe he thought it would suddenly be viewed as a smart move to start another holy way on a harmless plant. Washington politicians are old out of touch people that should be enjoying retirement.
