A (large) majority of state voters decide they're grown up enough to deal with weed (and tax the shit out of it, end discriminatory police practices, bring an end to one of the largest black markets, etc.)? Well now it's time for big papa federal government to step to the plate and rein every one in.
It's like their words are disingenuous and they don't actually practice was they preach. I wish there were words for that.
You are running for reelection this year. You have previously made sound statements supporting the legalization experiment that Washington and an expanding number of states are making. AG Sessions is trying to undo that. If you want Washingtonians who support legal cannabis to support you, a great step would be to author legislation requiring that cannabis be rescheduled, as well as legislation legalizing it at the Federal level.
See: 'Refer Madness' to get the whole story....
I'm not surprised at all that this directive came out just days after legal marijuana sales begin in California.
Just another tool for voter suppression.
Now on the other hand, if the Democratic Party gets its act together and starts getting strong in the purple states and is able to compete well in the republican districts, they stand a much better chance of changing the policy dynamic.
This is what your relatives voted for last November. Stigginit. Your unhappiness is their happiness.
