  • Attorney General Reverses Obama-Era Marijuana ProtectionsAttorney General Reverses Obama-Era Marijuana Protections

    Just days after recreational cannabis became fully legal in California, U.S. Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions announced Thursday that he is rescinding an Obama-era policy that directed the Department of Justice to take a hands-off approach to marijuana in states that have set their own laws.

Sessions, a zealous critic of marijuana who infamously said marijuana is only “slightly less awful” than heroin and that “good people don’t smoke marijuana,” has also lobbied Congress to oppose the Rohrabacher-Farr Act, a longstanding budget rider prohibiting the Justice Department from spending federal funds prosecuting medical marijuana in states where it is legal, which now number 29. The spending provision, which has to be renewed annually, is currently in limbo as Congress hasn’t yet passed a federal budget. …
