AP reports that “Attorney General Jeff Sessions… is going after legalized marijuana. Sessions is rescinding a policy that had let legalized marijuana flourish without federal intervention across the country…. The move will leave it to U.S. attorneys where pot is legal to decide whether to aggressively enforce federal marijuana law. The move likely will add to confusion about whether it’s OK to grow, buy or use marijuana in states where it’s legal, since long-standing federal law prohibits it….”
Rep. Shamed Dogan responds tweeting… This is a waste of law enforcement resources and a slap in the face to voters and legislators around the country. Thank you @SenCoryGardner for standing up for federalism against Jeff Sessions' federal tyranny.
Speaker Todd Richardson says that the legislature is the “best place” for medical marijuana to be decided. Listen to him here.
