This is a great post that deserves to be read and then reread. When will the US reign in corporations that use humans as just about slave labor to increase their profits. Capitalism unchecked will destroy anything the US could have been. Hugs

Within a heartbeat of California legalizing marijuana, attorney general Jeff Sessions rescinded Obama administration sentiment to stay out of pot friendly state law. Sessions put America on notice, federal law trumps state fancy – federal prosecutors have been instructed to replace hands-off State decriminalization of pot with an aggressive approach to prioritizing resources in a crack down of possession, cultivation and distribution of marijuana in states were it is legalized.

“In deciding which marijuana activities to prosecute under these laws with the department’s finite resources, prosecutors should follow the well-established principles that govern all federal prosecutions,” Sessions said in a memo to all federal prosecutors. “These principles require federal prosecutors deciding which cases to prosecute to weigh all relevant considerations of the crime, the deterrent effect of criminal prosecution, and the cumulative impact of particular crimes on the community.”

    • Hello and good morning Randy. The republicans are only for states rights when they are not in charge of the federal government. When the states do something they don’t like such as give rights to LGBTQ people or preventing the blocking of Planned Parenthood. The republicans do not have any real idology other than being in charge. They want a one party system with them ruling everything. But as we have seen they suck at governing and the excel at corruption. Hugs
