Jeff Sessions Says Feds Wont Go After Small-Time Marijuana Cases

The Attorney General of the United States, Jeff Sessions, told Georgetown student Saturday that the Federal law enforcement will not seek out prosecutions on small time marijuana cases. The announcement comes months after Sessions ended an Obama-era policy that has allowed legal cannabis to blossom in states like Colorado and Nevada.

Sessions believes that Federal law enforcement should focus their resources on “drug gangs and larger conspiracies.” He particularly wants to focus their attention of illegal cannabis operations, specifically those that want to sell other harmful narcotics, as well as those who aren’t attempting to comply within state laws.

Jeff Sessions stated that the federal government, “haven’t been working small marijuana cases before, they are not going to be working them now.” This news adds confusing relationship between the Attorney General of the United States and the states that have legally voted in recreational cannabis legislation.
