Sessions will end policy that allowed legalized marijuana
« on: January 04, 2018, 01:45:53 PM »
Glad to see it, for me, it's personal. Only a couple in my area grew weed, small plots of 12 plants, but when Ca opened the floodgates, people started buying up empty land and mowed down the forest to grow thousands of plants, and I do mean acres of this shit.
I wouldn't mind, but it attracts a very bad element, not to mention the smell in late summer is nauseating.
I hope he has an impact, but I won't hold my breath. I'll buy a gas mask instead. :glare:


Sessions will end policy that allowed legalized marijuana to prosper

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will roll back an Obama-era policy that gave states leeway to allow marijuana for recreational purposes.

The Justice Department on Thursday afternoon released a memo announcing that the so-called Cole memo — which ordered U.S. attorneys in states where marijuana has been legalized to deprioritize prosecution of marijuana-related cases — would be rescinded effective immediately.

"Previous nationwide guidance specific to marijuana enforcement is unnecessary and is rescinded, effective immediately," the memo reads.

Two sources with knowledge of the decision confirmed to The Hill early Thursday that Sessions planned on ending the policy authored in 2013 by then-Deputy Attorney General James Cole.

The Associated Press first reported the decision.

Sessions, a vocal critic of marijuana legalization, has hinted for months that he would move to crack down on the growing cannabis market.
Sessions, since taking over as head of the Justice Department, has appeared to show a harder line on marijuana. In May, the attorney general sent a letter to congressional leaders requesting they get rid of an amendment in the department’s budget that blocks the Justice Department from using federal money to prevent states "from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana."

Opponents of legal marijuana on Thursday celebrated the long-awaited action.

With Legalized weed MS 13 members and other organized cartel criminals can't be prosecuted for Mj dealing, and they have a much better network in place than the treehuggers
