Connecticut DCP wary after Sessions revises marijuana policy

Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Department of Justice rescinded the "Cole Memo" and other internal enforcement guidelines from the Obama Administration that de-prioritized enforcement of federal marijuana prohibition against individuals and businesses complying with state laws regarding recreational marijuana.

And, hopefully, if something does work, it's a chance for the idea to spread.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions threw a monkey wrench into the Natural State's long-awaited launch of Arkansas' medical marijuana industry next month by rolling back an Obama-era policy Thursday that opened the door to the legalization of pot in Arkansas and 29 other states. To date, all eight states that have enacted adult use regulatory laws, as well as the District of Columbia have done so by a direct vote of the people.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions changed all that on Thursday.

The people have spoken. Gardner also warned that the looming Justice Department announcement would make things harder for 2018 Republican candidates in states where pot is legal.

"This reported action directly contradicts what Attorney General Sessions told me prior to his confirmation".

"He said, 'This is just not something that President Trump is focused on.' And apparently, it's not just a focus, it's a primary initiative of the new year", Gardner fumed. Reversing the Obama administration policy against prosecutions suggests that stance is more a matter of convenience.

Like Sessions, Hutchinson has made clear his disdain for marijuana use and possible legalization of recreational use of pot in states like California, Colorado, Nevada and MA.

Now, Stewart believes there needs to be a director who can "be assertive" in leading the probe, which has since been directed by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director and federal prosecutor.

So it's sad to see the department fighting the tide of public sentiment and the will of citizens over what should be a state decision.

Concerning Arkansas, Hutchinson said his administration will watch to see if the DOJ distinguishes between medical marijuana and so-called adult or recreational use of legalized pot. Based on that rubric, our advice for how much effort Maryland's acting U.S. Attorney Stephen Schenning ought to devote to the cause of cracking down on our nascent medical pot business?

"Does my state have my best interest in protecting me through this process if we get a license or once they get the money are we left out to dry if something goes wrong from the federal government", says Barron.
