But What about Federal law? Legitimate medical providers of this State are actually civil-disobedience heroes like Ghandi and Martin Luther King for caring for their patient members notwithstanding the heavy federal penalties. But all is not lost for medical patients at the federal level under Trump. For one thing President Trump endorsed medical cannabis during the campaign. Further Attorney General Sessions has essentially announced the policy of the Federal government will be to distinguish between medical and recreational which he disfavors, The 9th circuit Federal court has held that the feds may not target state legal medical cannabis activity, and congress has defunded the DOJ on the topic for 4 successive budgets. Nonetheless, Federal Law still holds cultivation and sales to be felonies, and the federal government is committed to enforcing the controlled substances act.
