Attorney General Jeff Sessions might get an early Christmas present this year from Congress, which could soon remove the only regulation preventing Sessions from unleashing the DEA on states that have legalized medical marijuana. But despite that threat, a defiant Democratic rep says, “Let ’em try.” That’s the message Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR) shared with Politico last week as the potential crackdown loomed over the medical marijuana industry. Even though 30 states and Washington DC have legalized medicinal cannabis use, all forms and uses of marijuana remain illegal under federal law. The only thing protecting those states is a budget rider preventing the DEA from spending any money on enforcing prohibition in jurisdictions that have legalized medical marijuana. Without that amendment, there’s nothing to stop Sessions from going after businesses, doctors and even patients involved in the medical marijuana industry.
