Quinnipiac Ballot: US Voters Favor Marijuana Legalization

White House Counsel Donald McGahn, counselor Kellyanne Conway, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and recently ousted top strategist Steve Bannon were among the insiders who have urged Trump to give Sessions a second chance, according to the report. "I think it should be up to the states, absolutely".

Overall, 29 states have legalized medicinal marijuana; eight states plus the District of Columbia have legalized recreational use; and 18 states allow for the use of cannabinoid oil, also known as CBD, which is non-psychoactive.

According to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, 70 percent of Americans opposed enforcing federal marijuana laws on states.

Modern versions of pot are up to six times more potent than the weed my classmates smoked back in the day, so it can even produce psychotic, homicidal episodes.

Big cities, such as San Francisco and Los Angeles, are late to the ganja-selling game and won't be offering permits until later, meaning shops won't be open for business at the same time as other places across the state.

In Connecticut, lawmakers have yet to legalize marijuana's recreational use. Under Barack Obama, that number dipped to 100 yearly raids from 2009 to 2011.

For those who favor legalizing recreational and medical use of marijuana, there is plenty of bad news in Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to reverse the Justice Department's previous hands-off policy toward state experimentation.

So, the federal government is going to crack down on pot, is it? It can permanently lower IQ, reduce initiative, cause long-term memory impairment, and lead to deaths on the highways (every state which has legalized recreational pot use has seen a spike in DUI deaths). Marijuana sales are illegal in other local jurisdictions, but, according to the white paper, the county would have received almost $500,000 if it had allowed pot sales.

But Kilmer cautioned that cartels are not the only ones who can fill any potential market holes.

The senator in the televised interview framed his opposition to the attorney general's marijuana policy shift as a states' rights issue. A majority of Americans support legalization, and Sessions has simply chose to ignore their views. Though he was named after Confederacy president Jefferson Davis, Sessions looks more like a Keebler Elf.

Voters made Colorado and Washington the first two states to legalise recreational marijuana in 2012 and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan were the lead authors of a January 10 letter to Sessions from 10 USA mayors, including New York City's Bill de Blasio.

Just a good ol' boy. They should have the right to do so without wondering what the next us attorney general will want.

In reality however, Federal Bureau of Investigation data shows violent crime dropping almost four percent in Washington since legalization. In the conservative Matanuska-Susitna Valley, in Fairbanks and on the Kenai Peninsula voters have overwhelmingly voted to keep the cannabis business legal. In 2016, total marijuana sales in Colorado was $1.3 billion. The Drug Enforcement Administration could raid dispensaries that states have allowed, as it did under President George W. Bush and even under Barack Obama. When it comes to medical marijuana, 91 percent want it.

In early 2013, Americans were reeling from the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. A month later, the president signed 23 executive orders addressing gun safety.

Instead, we could be regulating an industry that was worth $17.9 billion in the U.S.in 2017 alone.

While pot is legal in several USA states including California and Colorado, it's illegal federally.

We should we have a vigorous debate as to whether Kansas wants to join the rest of the growing majority of states who have decriminalized marijuana or whether we choose to continue down the path of a failed drug policy of prohibition that continues to waste law enforcement resources. But state officers can't help.

In elevating the matter from a mere states' rights issue to a high-level national priority, Sessions may have outsmarted himself. By threatening an assault on a sector that has established itself across the country, Sessions has picked a fight he is bound to lose. Don't take my word for it: Take California's.

There may be a "Trump effect" (or, more accurately, a "Sessions effect") on Republican numbers there. The solution is for them to work through the legal process to change the laws, to work through Congress to transfer control of drug policy from the nation's capital to state capitals, and allow the laboratory of democracy to do its work.

It passed the State Assembly (their lower chamber) and is in committee in the senate for when session reconvenes. We kind of need the money, and prohibition is stupid. They should get to it.
