Trump’s U.S. Attorney General Nominee Could Destroy Current Cannabis Policies

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, December, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

When I went to MJ Biz Con  last month, I attended a panel called “Win, Lose, or Draw: 2016 Election Post Game” that featured various cannabis policy experts.  One of those experts was Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of The Drug Policy Alliance.  When Nadelmann was asked about post election presidential results, he actually stood on the stage and addressed the audience and stated, “This administration that we have just voted in to our federal government is going to be the biggest test of the American democracy since the Civil War. We should all be profoundly concerned, and what we did is the most devastatingly destructive thing we could’ve done on a national front.”  He stated this during a portion of the panel discussion where the speakers were urging people in the cannabis industry (or entering the cannabis industry) to work together on collaborative efforts in order to keep the ground we have made so far and also to, hopefully, gain more. 

It appears that Nadelmann and other panelists, such as Dale Sky Jones, Exectuive Chancellor at Oaksterdam University, who followed up Nadelmann’s statement and urged cannabis industry professionals to stand in a unified voice, were spot on about this being a critical time for us to stand together, since now we are facing an anti-marijuana U.S. Attorney General.  Yes, Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Senator whom President-elect Trump nominated to this position, seems to have some kind of cruel plan in store to modify the way our federal government approaches states that legalized marijuana.
