AG Sessions: No 'Buds' in California

  • Open for Business California Marijuana Shops Celebrate New Year New Law

Six pot shops confirmed they were selling recreational marijuana Saturday after receiving their state licenses the day before.

"We will continue working with our federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement partners to pursue shared public safety objectives, with an emphasis on stemming the overproduction of marijuana and the diversion of marijuana out of state, dismantling criminal organizations and thwarting violent crime in our communities", Williams said.

She marveled at the difference between buying a legal bag of weed from the times in her 20s when she was buying marijuana on the streets, a situation she said exposed her to contaminated products and unsafe situations.

Redmond Mayor George Endicott said Friday the city has an ordinance that says it can not give licenses to businesses that violate state or federal law. "These reported actions are an insult to Nevada voters, an affront to states' rights, and a threat to our local economy". Eight states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational use, and California's sales alone are projected to bring in $1 billion annually in tax revenue within several years.

Part of the reason that pot tourism isn't likely to take off quickly in any of the places where recreational marijuana is now legal - Alaska, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Washington, D.C. - is because of some of the complications surrounding where and how people can consume it.

Only Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas do not allow any access to marijuana, said Karmen Hanson, a cannabis policy analyst with the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Currently, the U.S.is experiencing an opioid epidemic.

The President's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis concluded in its report that "there is a lack of sophisticated outcome data on dose, potency, and abuse potential for marijuana". "I think he's going to see a lot of us come out and be even more vocal about our support for legal cannabis".

"I do not believe there's any argument, because a state legalized marijuana, that the federal law against marijuana is no in existence", he told radio host Hugh Hewitt in October.

"By rescinding these, it looks like the attorney general is changing course, but it's important to note they didn't say that he wanted local USA attorneys to go out and crack down on the industry", he said. Booker says Sessions' "obsession with marijuana" puts him "on the wrong side of history". "This is an industry that Oregonians have chosen - and one I will do everything within my legal authority to protect", Rosenblum said.

Paul is not the only Republican to criticize Session for last week's decision. Sen. In Washington state alone, the marijuana industry paid Dollars $280 million in taxes in the last fiscal year.

For Gordon, the fact that California, the most populous state in the country and one of the top tourism states, has "gone legal" means that, despite the Trump administration's latest move to undo states' laws, there is no turning back on the growing trend to legalize marijuana.

In addition to the "pot policy" shift, Trump and his minions have been focused on numerous policies that hurt California and Los Angeles. "The war on drugs, to me, is a war on liberty". The general idea was to give users and producers who followed the laws in their states a bit of assurance that federal agents wouldn't be knocking on their doors. Sessions unleashes the hounds on pro-pot states. The feds vowed to only intervene if marijuana was ending up in the hands of high profile gangs or children.

The Golden State simply did not deliver votes to Trump last November and perhaps even more so, has been ground central for the resist movement.
