SESSIONS LED JUSTICE DEPARTMENT RESCINDS OBAMA ERA MARIJUANA LAWS
This is what keeps Jeff Sessions and The Justice Department up at night with concerns of the danger it proposes. WEED. Not the fact that your boss, the president of the United States is calling your Justice Department crooked, biased, and needs to be disbanded. WEED is the biggest concern. Not the fact that the president of the United States probably worked with Russia to undermine the democracy of this Country. Weed is the number one concern for Jeff Session’s Justice Department. Nothing will keep this Country safe, like cracking down on weed……….or, is it that nothing will fill up these private prisons that Sessions and others are surely invested in, like putting people away for possessing small amounts of marijuana?
Reuters (@reuters) reports, the U.S Justice Department on Thursday rescinded an Obama Administration policy that had eased enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized weed, instead giving federal prosecutors wide latitude on pursuing criminal charges.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions overturned the policy. His actions drew immediate condemnation from marijuana advocates and some lawmakers in both parties who said it trampled on the rights of voters in states where weed is now legal and created uncertainty about how strictly federal drug laws will be enforced. The administration’s move also raised questions about how the new policy will impact the budding marijuana industry in places like California and Colorado.
