Nevada Braces For Possible Federal Marijuana Crackdown

"Reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will roll back federal marijuana policy are deeply concerning and disruptive to our state's economy", she said.

Jars of medical marijuana are on display on the counter of Western Caregivers Medical marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles.

"What Jeff Sessions said is he didn't think it was on Trump's agenda to do this, he didn't think President Trump had the bandwidth to do this, and he had no plans to repeal the Cole memorandum", Gardner said in an interview. "It's important. I don't think it's going to go anywhere".

Medical marijuana is used to treat cancerous tumors, ALS, epilepsy, and opioid addiction. President Donald Trump hasn't nominated a replacement. Democratic Congresswomen Jacky Rosen and Dina Titus criticized the move by sessions, which could pave the way to prosecute people using marijuana that's legal under Nevada state law. Thursday's announcement is a major decision that could have ramifications for every state. This is not the Obama administration, where law enforcement was a presidential whim and making laws was something the president took upon himself to do. "I believe what happened today was a trampling of Colorado's rights and its voters". "We are evaluating the exact impact rescinding the directive could have on Pennsylvania's medical marijuana program but I will continue to do everything in my power to protect Pennsylvania patients".

Heat's Waiters (ankle) opts for season-ending surgery
His season will end having appeared in 30 games and averaging 14.3 points, 3.8 assists, and 2.6 rebounds per game. For the bonus to kick in, Waiters would have had to have played at least 70 of Miami's 82 games.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) threatened to put a hold on all of Trump's Justice Department nominees and called the pot policy a "complete reversal". But he's reminding those prosecutors that pot is still illegal on the federal level. And at least one expressed hope that this action would push Congress to ultimately legalize cannabis.

States including Florida have passed laws legalizing marijuana for medical use and some even for recreational use. So for individual users, for people who were complying with their state medical marijuana laws, the feds should stay out of that. The protections apply to 46 states, including Pennsylvania. Another 22 states allow only medical marijuana and 15 allow a lesser medical marijuana extract.

Marijuana use and possession is still against federal law. It makes no more sense for the federal government to prohibit marijuana nationwide than when it prohibited alcohol - although at least in the latter case proponents of prohibition had the decency to obtain a constitutional amendment to do so.

If that happens, Vermont will become the first state to legalize marijuana through its legislators.
