Jeff Sessions personally asked Congress to let him prosecute medical marijuana providers – The Washington Post

Sessions is asking congressional leaders to undo federal medical marijuana protections that have been in place since 2014.

…The protections, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, prohibit the Justice Department from using federal funds to prevent certain states “from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.”

…Sessions’s citing of a “historic drug epidemic” to justify a crackdown on medical marijuana is at odds with what researchers know about current drug use and abuse in the United States.

…Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R.-Calif.) said that “Mr. Sessions stands athwart an overwhelming majority of Americans and even, sadly, against veterans and other suffering Americans who we now know conclusively are helped dramatically by medical marijuana.”

Trump WH has no use for reality, the plough ahead no matter how bone-headed and wrong-headed the scheme.
