Oregon Fights Back Against Sessions
Oregon representatives stand with other representatives from the legal states of Washington, California, Colorado, Florida, New York, Nevada, Alaska, Connecticut, Michigan, Arizona and Maryland on the push against Jeff Sessions and the DOJ for trying to rescind the Cole memo and strong arm the thriving cannabis market.
In no time representatives took to social media and held news conferences to show unity and defiance against Mr. Sessions. Even Richard Branson, Judge Napolitano and Rand Paul weighing in on the issue.
On my pod cast I broke down the situation the industry face in the new year with a Sessions and DOJ renewed fight against legal marijuana. I go into depth on the Obama era Cole memo I also speak about federal law over reach into legal cannabis states.
The Cole memo still matters the Trump campaign promised not to interfere with states marijuana laws. It's the reason some marijuana activists and enthusiasts voted for Trump.
Sessions made a declaration upon his confirmation to the AG position, session told representatives of legal state he nor his DOJ would hamper legal cannabis.. He said the question wasn't on Trumps agenda. Trump himself said the "marijuana question should be left up to the states."
With all legal states along with the cannabis industry and allies pushing back against Sessions I do believe session will retreat.

I'm very excited about the unity shown by legal states and the cannabis community. I've been fighting the good fight for legalization of cannabis for quite a long time. It's a wonderful time to be pro cannabis and continue what others of yester-years battle for those that lost their lives defending cannabis those that are currently in prisons for standing up for a plant with amazing healing powers. The pioneers! Of this industry I hope would be and are proud the fact that the current generation has finally made cannabis mainstream. And to that I say cheers!?
I was sort of worried about them not doing a whole lot too, but I'm so glad that I'm wrong. I think a common enemy (in this case, Sessions) is the best way to really band people together to continue to fight the good fight. I'm glad to see that's what's happening. Your podcast sounds really interesting; I'll have to give it a look!
