Chancellor’s Chat March 2017

Dale headshot thumbnail 2I am a “bad news first” type, good news after, so here we go...  Attorney General Jeff Sessions has now mentioned cannabis twice in the past week, most recently speaking at the National Association of Attorneys General’s annual winter meeting on February 28th.  Sessions said that the Department of Justice might begin more aggressive enforcement of federal laws against retail cannabis in eight states and Washington, D.C. who have already legalized it. “States, they can pass the laws they choose,” he said. “I would just say, it does remain a violation of federal law to distribute marijuana throughout any place in the United States, whether a state legalizes it or not.”
