    If it doesn't shut it down, it may just open the door to making it fed legal.

    Pot has never been legal at the federal level. Old order stated operations that follow state rules are not a priority. The new order states local DA will exercise discretion. They always had discretion.

    I don't think any DA will prosecute state legal operations. Everyone know Sessions is a dick working for a bigger dick. No DA wants to be dick.

    Crap, I lost that bet. Apparently Sessions does have a pulse after all.

    As for pot, that pony done left the barn.

    That's going to bid well (not) for someones re-election considering 61% of the population recently surveyed support the current trend of decriminalization/legalization and 33% oppose it, of that 33% most are over 65 so they don't have long to go on this planet. I think the feds knew once the momentum got going in California many places in the rest of the country would follow suit. I doubt this will be effective at reversing the current trend. The AG impresses me about as much as the other all stars.

    Blasphemy;
    There is too much money to be had by the Gov't.
    I saw it happen in Colorado. Makes no big diff for me.
    It is a weed after all, grows practically anywhere.
    Personally I hope NM does not legalize it recreationally.
    It makes everything go to PoT.
    I have seen more than one pristine campsite all jacked-up,
    because of freeLoaders associated with the dream of owning
    A pot plantation, in Colorado. Rant/off.

    That has just as much to do with the high cost of living and the huge influx on the front range as it does the with MJ, the more places it's legal the less there will be population shifts associated with legalization. The entire far western US has approved recreational use.

    I read somewhere, Sessions is letting State Attorneys General decide what happens in each state, maybe thru Federal Judges in those states. If it works that way :dunno .
    Pass the buck from the Federal level without getting themselves in hot water and let the states decide.
    There is too much cash flowing and taxes created to stop it IMO.

    Marijuana was made illegal in the US in 1937. It's all about the tax money, and whether anybody is a "Dick" or not will have nothing to do with it's future legality.

    If I was in CO I'd be hoping every other state legalized it. If alcohol was federally outlawed I wouldn't want AZ to be the only state around where alcohol is legal.

    I guess we will just have to revert back to getting jacked up on amphetamines and urinating on prostitutes in Russian hotel rooms like our fearless leader.

    I sure wish that Hunter S. Thompson was still alive...

    I was in California the last couple of days. Shockingly, recreational pot did not result in mass chaos or the end of the world.

    What Sessions did is being blown out of proportion. What you all don't understand is that in places like Colorado drug cartel activity is up. Cuban and Chinese drug cartels have moved into Colorado and setup large illegal grows because they know they face less punishment when they are caugt. And all that weed they grow gets sent to eastern states and sold illegally. The feds need more power back to fight this stuff it's not so much about the legit operations. Living in CO I can only hope it gets legalized every where... homeless population is through the roof, insurance companies are raising our car insurance rates, ect. And all the money?? please it's added like 1% to the state budget. Some of the smaller towns have made some money on local taxes but its not changing anything drastically. That and the people who move here just for legal weed are not exactly upstanding citizens from what I have seen.
