Jeff Sessions Resigns
Yesterday, Attorney General Of The United States Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation to President Trump, at the President’s request. His resignation marks completion of an era at the Justice Department under among the most noteworthy cannabis challengers Washington has actually ever seen.
During a hearing in 2016, then-Senator Sessions securely specified that “excellent individuals do not smoke cannabis.” After being selected as Attorney general of the United States by President Trump, Sessions made the decision to rescind the Obama-era Cole Memo, which laid out 8 enforcement top priorities that mostly allowed states to set their own cannabis policies without worry of federal disturbance.
NCIA eagerly anticipates dealing with acting-Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and is actively working with our allies in the Senate to guarantee that the requirement to protect the legal cannabis industry is front and center when the future candidate is thought about by the chamber.
