Why Are Charities Too Good for Marijuana Money?
Politicians in Colorado, California, Oregon and other states where the robust marijuana industry’s billions flow have been happy to capitalize on the bounty—the bounty of money, and the bounty of people with money, eager to convert their cash into political influence.
As the Los Angeles Times reported, the cannabis industry has a clear favorite (and chief beneficiary of their generosity) in the race to become California’s next governor in Gavin Newsom, the state’s lieutenant governor and the most prestigious support of last year’s successful legalization effort. In Nevada, the marijuana industry is making its preference for the Democratic Party clear—hardly surprising, given Republican sugar daddy Sheldon Adelson’s (failed) effort to put it out of business.
This is fine—marijuana is a business and deserves to hire lobbyists, lawyers and attempt to influence lawmakers like any other. There’s Big Oil and Big Tech, and soon there will be Big Weed. This is part of what legalization is all about.

Justice Department No. 2 Weighs In On Marijuana Legalization
The Trump administration is continuing to weigh whether or not to reverse Obama-era guidance that generally allows states to legalize marijuana without federal interference, the Justice Department's number two official said on Thursday.
"We are reviewing that policy. We haven't changed it, but we are reviewing it. We're looking at the states that have legalized or decriminalized marijuana, trying to evaluate what the impact is," Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in an appearance at the conservative Heritage Foundation.
