U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going back to his “War on Drugs” roots during his days working with Nancy Reagan.

He has ordered a full review of the federal marijuana policy.  This is renewing anxieties within both the medical and recreational marijuana industries that the Trump administration intends to interfere with state laws on legalization.

Sessions sent a memorandum outlining the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) plans to tackle rising rates of violent crime. The memo calls for a review of the DOJ’s stance on policing, as well as on as sentencing penalties and on laws regarding marijuana consumption, possession, sale, distribution, etc.

Officials within the Trump administration have offered strict definitions differentiating between the medical and recreational use of marijuana and the laws governing them.  This could signal a potential crackdown launched by the DOJ and a renewing of the “War on Drugs.” However, current language from the DOJ remains vague.


The memo details Sessions’ order of a “review of existing policies in the areas of charging, sentencing, and marijuana to ensure consistency with the Department’s overall strategy on reducing violent crime.”

The vague language is causing rampant fears though the industry with speculation that the Federal government will usurp states rights regarding what voters put into play with the lucrative pot industries in a handful of states.

Other experts express doubt that the administration will interfere with state laws given the growing bipartisan support on the issue.

Tom Angell, Chairman of the Marijuana Minority, states –

This is just the first we’ve seen about the process by which changes might be considered. At the end of the day, it’s important to realize that huge majorities of Republicans and Democrats support letting states implement their own marijuana laws without federal interference. Any Justice Department crackdown led by Sessions will create enormous political problems for the larger administration, especially since President Trump repeatedly pledged on the campaign trail that he would respect state cannabis laws.”

God Bless.
