    In the end, let's hope that he respects the states who legalized it and does not attempt to thwart the will of the people.

    New Nominee A Cause For Concern

    Trump's plan to nominate Rep. Tom Marino (R-Penn.), to be his drug czar, in charge of the Office of National Drug Control Policy has also raised concerns among those who want to see looser federal restrictions on cannabis. During his time in Congress, Marino has been a consistent opponent of loosening restrictions on marijuana.

    The White House has also signaled that it could reverse President Barack Obama's marijuana policy, where the Justice Department indicated it would not challenge state laws or make enforcement of the federal law a priority. In February, press secretary Sean Spicer suggested that under the Trump administration there could be "greater enforcement" of federal marijuana laws.

    But the difference between the president's views and the views of his top law enforcement officials has left activists wondering about the future of legalization efforts and enforcement activities.

    "It is not clear yet where the administration is going to go with this," said Robert Capecchi, the federal policies director of the Marijuana Policy Project. The group has been instrumental in promoting statewide and federal initiatives for commonsense marijuana laws.

    In the past, Trump's views on marijuana have gone back and forth. Most recently after joining the presidential race Trump argued that legalization "should be a state issue" and he has repeatedly stated that patients in need of it should receive medical cannabis. The concern is that Trump has surrounded himself with people who don't share that view.

    They need a wake up call.....

    The Trump administration has not revealed any new data to back a crackdown on marijuana.

    Instead, Sessions sees marijuana legalization as tantamount “to being sold at every corner grocery store.”

    Federal officials would be better served focusing on the efforts of the recently created President's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis.

    To further complicate matters for Trump and Sessions, 71 percent of Americans are opposed to messing with marijuana laws in states where the drug is legal.

    Eh, Sessions is 70 years old and in ten years he'll be 80 years old.

    Get him out and get someone who lives in this century for the job.

    Marijuana farm investor Serge Chistov is shrugging off anti-weed rhetoric from Attorney General Jeff Sessions as just a bunch of reefer madness.

    "If Sessions picks this fight, he's going to lose," said Chistov, an investor in the Honest Marijuana Company in Colorado, the first of eight states that have legalized pot for non-medical use. "He's going to be fighting against the money."

    Recreational pot is already for sale in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, where Chistov praises its benefits to the economy.

    "I'm not changing my business plan one iota," he said. "This is the winning strategy." He said legal pot's popularity will help him prevail against any possible federal intervention, which would cost too much tax money to implement effectively.

    Under the Obama administration, eight states and Washington, D.C. voted to legalize recreational marijuana. Colorado, Washington and Oregon were the first states to do so, and they've already developed a regulated, taxable industry for recreational marijuana, with dispensaries and growers. The other five states voted to legalize recreational marijuana on the day Trump was elected, but haven't had time to develop a regulatory structure.

    Sessions hasn't said anything specific about what he's going to do about marijuana, or if he's going to do anything at all. But it's still illegal under federal law, and Sessions has made it clear that he's against legalization.

    Will Sessions Launch A War On Weed?

    by Paul Waldman

    When Jeff Sessions was under consideration for a federal judgeship in 1986, a witness testified that he had heard Sessions say that he thought the Ku Klux Klan “was okay until I found out they smoked pot.” Even if that might have just been a tasteless joke, Sessions has made clear that he still believes that “good people don’t smoke marijuana.”

    But the big unanswered question is how the attorney general will approach the states that have passed some form of legalization. He could follow the (mostly) hands-off approach that the Obama administration did. Or he could send out federal agents to start shutting down dispensaries across the country. Or he could do something in between.

    But given his strong views and the fact that marijuana is still illegal under federal law — which gives him substantial power to go after the burgeoning pot industry in states that have legalized it — it’s hard to believe there isn’t some kind of crackdown coming from the Justice Department.

    Sessions may already be having a deterrent effect. The Colorado legislature was all set to pass a law regulating marijuana clubs, but backed off after the governor warned that doing so could incur Sessions’ wrath.

    But in other places, the movement toward legalization continues. Just yesterday, West Virginia’s governor signed a law passed by the legislature to create a medical marijuana system in the state.

    Which means that if and when he attacks legal marijuana, Sessions will be going after a movement with extraordinary momentum. And it’s not just the opinion polls, it’s also what’s happening at the ballot box.

    In 2016, marijuana initiatives were on the ballot in nine states, and won in eight of them. California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada legalized marijuana for recreational use, while Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota passed medical marijuana initiatives. Only Arizona’s recreational measure was narrowly defeated.

    As of now, there are eight states that have legalized recreational marijuana, and 21 more states and Washington, D.C. that have some kind of medical legalization in place. Sixty-eight million Americans live in the recreational marijuana states, and another 133 million live in the medical marijuana states, for a total of over 200 million Americans, or over three-fifths of the population.

    From wanting to bring back mandatory minimum sentencing to this passive-aggressive behavior toward states that have legalized marijuana, he is a disaster.

    He should not be in public service. He is an out of touch old man who should be retired and sent back to Alabama permanently.

    West Virginia Legalizes Medical Marijuana Despite Trump Administration Opposition

    On April 19, Gov. Jim Justice (D) signed into law Senate Bill 386, which makes West Virginia the 29th state to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes.

    “We’ve done something that’s goodness in my opinion,” Justice said, adding that legalizing the drug could help Mountain State citizens who would have trouble finding relief for severe pain without the new law.

    But not everyone thinks legalizing marijuana — even for compassionate medical reasons — is a good idea.

    House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, has opposed any legislation that would legalize marijuana in any form and voted against Senate Bill 386. Armstead based his objections in part on concerns the administration of President Donald Trump would clamp down on states that have legalized marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law.

    Heather Trela, writing for the New York-based public policy research organization the Rockefeller Institute of Government, said there is a real possibility Trump could take federal action against states that have legalized medical marijuana.

    Friday Could Spell Doom For Legal Marijuana Growers

    Friday could be a very bad day for marijuana growers.

    That’s because, tucked into the vast spending bill Congress needs to pass to avoid yet another government shutdown, is the extension of a provision designed to prevent the federal government from prosecuting marijuana growers in states that have legalized cannabis.

    If it’s removed, it would allow more than a dozen currently stalled federal prosecutions of weed growers up and down the West Coast to go through.

    The provision, known as the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment, prevents the U.S. Department of Justice from spending money that could interfere with laws in a number of states concerning “the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.”
