so it would have to be shut down as the first(or close to first) act of his presidency
it doesn't seem like the most plausible choice, but plausible and trump don't talk much

all the news articles out there certainly don't help the fear aspect. just google "jeff sessions pot stance" and you get these headlines....

"Will the Trump Administration Go to War Against Legal Weed?" -NYMag
"Could America's next top cop send marijuana legalization up in smoke?" -CNN
"Marijuana Industry Has The Jitters Over Jeff Sessions' Nomination" -Forbes
"'Drug War Dinosaur' Jeff Sessions Seen as Existential Threat to Pot..." -USNews
"Jeff Sessions Could Reverse Years Of Progress On Marijuana Policy" -HuffPost

then again, the news headlines are all a bit freaky right now so maybe best just not to look for a while. and of course headlines are just headlines..... meant to grab attention.

I think Trump knows that if he starts fucking with States right it will drastically effect his chances for reelection....hopefully. In the 90's he was actually an advocate for legalization of all drugs. Called the War on Drugs a failure. I have a feeling he's going to instruct Session's not to meddle in the states affairs.

The whole fed hands off policy in place now is a memo written by an assistant ag named Cole, who clarified the feds stance on the matter so Co could implement their rec laws. One piece of paper written by an ASSISTANT AG, it does not need to get higher up than that...

Trump is a pragmatist not a moralist. I know the bible belt people voted for him but still. White pride or whatever voted for him and yet Trump is no nazi. Sorry to burst your bubble. Bunch of Jews in his family tree now check for yourself.

Sessions is not president. Sessions might not be so anti pot now that he would try anything if he even could. Not approving of something and actively going after it are different. Crisp Crispy would not worry me as AG as his boss is Trump. Crisp is out of the running for just about anything if you were out of the loop.

No problem

Senator Jeff Sessions offered assurances that he would be willing as attorney general to tell President-elect Donald J. Trump “no” and not be “a mere rubber stamp.”

Session's today on enforcing fed MJ law-

Leahy: "If you are confirmed...would you use our federal resources to investigate sick people who are using marijuana in accordance with their state laws" even though it may conflict with federal law?

Sessions: "I won't commit to absolutely never enforcing federal law." But Sessions did agree there was a problem of resources.

"Using good judgement about how to handle these case will be a responsibility of mine...I will try to do so in a fair and just way," Sessions said.

Just as I thought, the resources aren't there given all the other big problems this country faces. Now will session's go after a cartel operation or a big "legal" op that ships it's goods to non legal states? I think he will and trump will approve of those particular actions. But the feds arresting every legal grower, smoker and patient is just ridiculous.

Fundamentally it's a state issue until it reaches critical mass and then it's on Congress to change the rules on the federal level. That's where people should really be looking, do their congressmen and representatives favor federal rule changes? You should find out because this could come up under trump or maybe the next prez in 8 years.
