In response to sessions rescinding cole memo "I have long advocated for states' rights to regulate marijuana use for their citizens without federal intervention. Today's announcement by AG Sessions is a gross overreach of federal authority that will impair thousands of small businesses across the country while doing absolutely nothing to stem drug deaths in Oregon."
"Sessions is a tremendous concern. On the other hand, I don't think the Trump administration is going to want to see him busting into states that have thoughtfully legalized marijuana and the larger number of states that have legalized medical marijuana," Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon tells Rolling Stone. "I think it would cost Trump dearly amongst his support group if Sessions were to carry out that mission."
