10/26/17 – During an interview with a conservative radio host U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated that he did not plan to use Federal RICO laws to dismantle the state legalized cannabis industry. Sessions is a known opponent of cannabis and state decriminalization efforts, and insists that federal laws are in effect in all 50 states and the federal government “will do our best to enforce the laws as we’re required to do.” However, at this time it is unclear what, if anything, the Department of Justice will do in response to state legalizing cannabis for recreational use. For now the status quo of the Obama administration has remained intact.
