The Sessions’ Rescission
On January 4th, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded Obama-era policy instructing federal prosecutors not to prioritize prosecutions against violators of federal drug laws in states that had decriminalized marijuana at the state level. This announcement came days after new legalization measures took effect in California. While many states have legalized at the state level, the drug is still illegal everywhere in the United States under federal law. On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host, Craig Williams joins Paul Armentano, deputy director of NORML and Paul Larkin, senior legal research fellow for the Heritage Foundation's Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, to discuss Attorney General Jeff Sessions' efforts to rescind the Obama-era policies on marijuana, the impact on state’s marijuana legislation, and how this announcement will impact marijuana litigation and the marijuana business. Paul Armentano is deputy director of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Paul Larkin is senior legal research fellow for the Heritage Foundation's Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.
