Jeff Sessions wants to go after medical marijuana
A growing body of research (acknowledged by the National Institute on Drug Abuse) has shown that opiate deaths and overdoses actually decrease in states with medical marijuana laws on the books.
…citing of a “historic drug epidemic” to justify a crackdown on medical marijuana is at odds with what researchers know about current drug use and abuse in the United States. The epidemic… involves deadly opiate drugs, not marijuana. It was generally assumed the Department of Justice would give a pass to the growing number of states with legalized medical marijuana (29 of them at the moment).
