Patients Worried About Future Of Medical Marijuana

Record-High Support for Legalizing Marijuana Use in U.S. - Gallup News

Record-High Support for Legalizing Marijuana Use in U.S. - Gallup News

Unfortunately, we are still waiting.

Those conversations paid off.

Pro-marijuana groups have seen years of steady wins as state after state has legalized some uses of the drug and it subsequently brought in millions of dollars in tax revenue. The primary argument for keeping marijuana illegal is that it is harmful.

That guidance is now gone.

"OK, now Congress, do something", said Morgan Paxhia, managing director at Poseidon Asset Management, which invests in marijuana businesses.

"I don't think this will slow (legalization) down at all", said Orens. But I do believe face-to-face meetings are productive, especially on such critical issues.

Gardner says that Sessions told him he had no intention to undo the Cole memo during the confirmation process and that marijuana would not be on the administration's agenda. Regulatory measures since that time nearly effectively killed medical marijuana access through regulatory limitations on dispensaries and providers. There's just one problem with his argument: It's not true. Those numbers are likely to be minuscule compared to California, which began selling marijuana for recreational use at the beginning of this month.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, said that state regulatory agencies will have a say in whether offshore drilling is allowed.

Another far-reaching aspect of his guidance last week shouldn't be overlooked.

But by positioning DOJ to pursue more marijuana prosecutions, Sessions himself did not factor in all relevant considerations.

The measure, which is expected to be debated in the Senate this year, declares that citizens with valid state permits to carry concealed handguns - as well as those who live in several other states that don't require permits to carry - can travel with their weapons nationwide without fear of prosecution.

Aside from being a futile attempt to put the legalized-marijuana genie back in the bottle, it's a mark of hypocrisy for Sessions, a former Alabama senator who had long championed the right of states to set their own laws without being bigfooted by an oppressive federal government.

Other Colorado legislators are also pushing for an amendment to the spending bill that would prevent the Department of Justice from spending money to prosecute legal state marijuana use.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the opening session of the Global Forum on Asset Recovery in Washington, D.C., on December 4.

The policy shift announced by Sessions "spurs Congress [to] an even greater need to act in this area of law", Gardner said.

A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment about whether it had coordinated with FinCEN in advance. It expires in less than two weeks if not renewed, on January 19. "I would like to know from the attorney general, what has changed?"

Sooner or later, Congress will repeal the federal ban on pot and will leave enforcement questions (properly) to the states. It comes as legalization of marijuana is at an all-time high in popularity with Republicans. It is too important for veiled threats, miscommunication and uncertainty. "I do not want Arkansas to become a recreational use state". The Obama administration preferred to duck a fight with state governments, while the Trump administration seems to be courting one.

Five of those cases are over, and there are no more appeals.

"Trump needs to realize that a lot of his supporters are pro-cannabis and it would be extremely hurtful to them if he allowed Sessions to move forward with this", said Damara Kelso, a Trump voter who runs Sugar Shack Farms, a marijuana grower in Eugene, Oregon.
