Sessions’s hand is here of course.
The Dems aren’t the only one’s resisting change at this point, our AG absolutely refuses to accept that the country has moved far beyond him on the issue of cannabis legalization. And though Mr. Sessions has been thwarted in many respects on the pot issue, he has made a habit of making any progress on the cannabis industry front as difficult as possible.
Pot should be treated like beer or wine. And it took a while for those industries to really get reestablished post prohibition too we suppose. (Largely do to government restrictions and shakedowns.) It’ll take a while before artisan marijuana farms start popping up like vineyards. But they likely will. However, Jeff Sessions doesn’t want to see it on his watch. For whatever reason.
