Unfortunately, we are still waiting. Cory Gardner, a Colorado Republican, said Sessions was violating the will of the people of Colorado, a state where recreational marijuana is legal.
Those conversations paid off.
Polis has been a longtime advocate for updating federal marijuana policy.
They warn that popular tourist areas in states with strict gun laws, like New York City, could see a surge of people carrying loaded weapons.
In the meantime, it's largely business as usual at shops around the state. "I would love to know what those are, what their medicinal properties are and what the dose should be". But I do believe face-to-face meetings are productive, especially on such critical issues. The frequency of violence committed by someone under the influence of marijuana is normally far below that of legal alcohol. Instead, in states that have legalized the use of medical marijuana, doctors may refer patients to state-approved programs that allow marijuana use in certain circumstances. There's just one problem with his argument: It's not true.

Throughout American history, conservatives have championed "states' rights". The Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment is set to expire January 19. Congress should ignore his recommendation during upcoming budget negotiations. Sessions called their hard work and thoughtful approach "unnecessary".
Congress needs to take up the marijuana issue and either completely decriminalize it or turn the issue of legalization over to the states. It is too important for veiled threats, miscommunication and uncertainty. "I think this, to me, is about states' rights". The decision said Trump's order would "violate the Tenth Amendment's prohibition against commandeering local jurisdictions" and other parts of the Constitution.
