U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions bummed the irie of legal and medicinal marijuana states by calling for stronger involvement from the feds — ignoring previous lenient federal enforcement policies set by the Obama administration.
Needless to say, Sessions’ announcement sparked outrage in the cannabis community, especially in California where weed just went legal days ago.
In San Diego, BudTrader.com CEO Brad McLaughlin quickly organized a petition calling for the immediate termination and removal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions due to his actions against the legal cannabis industry.
I have spoken to our legal advisers as well as other leaders in the Cannabis Industry and we are united in our decision to call for the immediate resignation and removal of Jeff Sessions as the Attorney General of the United States of America. His actions today have shown that he has complete disregard for public and majority opinion and his agenda and policies is not shared by a majority of Americans when it comes to legal cannabis in the United States.
To all elected officials at all levels, when it comes time to vote anyone that shares Mr. Sessions opinions and agendas when it comes to the legal cannabis community can expect to receive no votes from any member of the cannabis industry or the cannabis community.
