"Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going after legalized marijuana".

"Despite backwards moves by the Trump Administration, I will continue to protect cancer patients, kids with epilepsy, veterans with PTSD and all Pennsylvanians seeking relief from legal medical marijuana", Wolf said. California law regarding marijuana dates back to 1996 when Californian's legalized medical marijuana.

He also said the move by the Justice Department could cause concern for marijuana investors and slow industry growth.

"I hope it dooms his reelection". Even with the Cole Memo, banks and credit unions operating under federal charters had little incentive to help cannabis businesses, which are still federally illegal, according to a representative from the Colorado Bankers Association.

Matthew Slater, the team's special teams ace and spiritual leader, said the sky was never as dark as it looked at times. Brady targeted Kenny Britt, Jacob Hollister, Dwayne Allen and James Develin at least once - none of them had catches.

"We should all make sure it's done as safely and efficiently as possible", he said. "It really is because I think Jeff Sessions is one of the most honorable men in Washington, D.C., and I mean that sincerely", Stewart said in an interview on CNN.

Mr. Sessions's decision is unlikely to result in arrests of small-time marijuana users.

Brown said "the federal government should not stand in the way of the will of Oregonians".

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was founded by Joseph Smith around 1820 and the first church was built in 1830. Spencer Cox said he woke up to the news of Monson's passing and remarked that his life was "a symphony of service".

The laws against marijuana were democratically passed and enacted: they should be enforced, as all laws are supposed to be. The state's two other US attorneys are Trump appointees and have been more complimentary of Sessions' decision, though saying little about how they will apply it.
