How Could The End Of Jeff Sessions Create A Cannabis Boom?
Sessions Under Fire:
If you pay attention to what is going on with the Trump Administration, we understand if you don’t, you probably know about all the tension between Trump and Sessions. It is also very clear that people can easily be removed from his administration and replaced, as seen by our new Chief Of Staff John Kelly.
Here is something you might NOT have known! Jeff Sessions is currently being sued by a NFL star, a 11 year old girl with epilepsy, and a veteran with PTSD for Cannabis being on the schedule 1 substance list . Marvin Washington, who played for the Jets and had a 11 year career in the NFL, is suing sessions stating that the players are being “fed” opiates at the end of the season and that they should have alternate pain alternatives. The lawsuit also goes on to point out that in order for a substance be be a schedule 1 drug, it cannot have medical benefits. However, the US government has a patent that disagrees . Here is the complaint filed by the 11 year old girl and the NFL star.
The Trump Administration:
As you could probably imagine, the Trump administration creates a certain unease in the marijuana community. With more and more states and local governments creating medical and recreational laws and licensing opportunities, the time to invest in the cannabis industry in now. For now, the Department of Justice has no budget for prosecuting medical cannabis via the Rohrabacher–Farr amendment (later renamed to the Rohrabacher–Blumenauer amendment). This wonderful amendment, however, does not cover the recreational sales of marijuana.
Jeff Session’s Stance On Cannabis Is Clear:
On May 1, 2017 Jeff Session wrote a letter to congress and federal law makers regarding cannabis and the Rohrabacher–Farr amendment. This is what Jeff Sessions said:
“I believe it would be unwise for Congress to restrict the discretion of the Department to fund particular prosecutions, particularly in the midst of an historic drug epidemic and potentially long-term uptick in violent crime,”
“The Department,” Sessions continued, “must be in a position to use all laws available to combat the transnational drug organizations and dangerous drug traffickers who threaten American lives.”
The Start of A Cannabis Boom
Jeff Sessions leaving the Trump administration would open the position of Attorney General who is both the chief law enforcement officer and chief lawyer of the United States government. With a business man in office, who will have a hard time ignoring the money flowing in through cannabis tax, there is opportunity without Jeff Sessions. This could mean a very quick change in federal laws that could potential decriminalize the schedule 1 drug all together and create a national market. For investors this is the beginning of a fully legal cash crop that is sure to change history.
