Attorney General Jeff Sessions requested permission from Congress to once again use federal funds to go after marijuana growers and other businesses. A letter which he wrote to Congress on May 1st just became available to read.
In the letter, Sessions is pushing back against the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment which, according to this morning’s article in the Washington Post,
prohibit the Justice Department from using federal funds to prevent certain states “from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.”
