I work in the legal cannabis industry. And since Session's comments on the issue of cannabis yesterday, everyone is preparing for the worst.

Me along with thousands of other Americans stand to lose their job and livelihood we've invested years and money into if Session's can do what he wants when he gets into office. That includes denying non psychoactive CBD oil to all those kids you see having seizures that are only helped by a simple plant extract.

The motto amongst sick people now is "Better to live illegally, than to die legally." And I completely agree. I for one want no part in any government that denies sick people natural medicine because of politics. That goes for everybody. And this is our future under the next administration. States rights mean nothing to these people unless its politically expedient.

So, are we going to see a return to the dark ages, or do you think through some type of Trump magic everything will work out?

I'm having a hard time being positive about this.

Chill out.

Trump stated repeatedly on the campaign trail that medical was a necessity.

Wait, what state do you live in?

To thousands of people the cannabis industry is a serious, full time job. What constitutes a "real" job to you?

I have to say, that comment comes off as a little ignorant.

In states where it is legal, there are many marijuana tycoons that are successful business owners and millionaires in their own right. I'm assuming you don't know the OP personally so, maybe lighten up on the personal attacks.

You're fine.

No need for the clickbait title, either.

Fair enough. But I'm allowed to have an opinion on the "industry" ignorant or not.

The title isn't clickbait, this is what we've all been talking about since yesterday. All the way up to the owner of my dispensary.

I wonder what the legal liquor industry has to say about making weed legal? If those 'Good Ol Boys' have their way they'd go back to arresting 'potheads', but smiling every time theres a DUI accident death with their safe and sane product.

Get ready to get reset.

I hope you are paying the full tax to the IRS.

The IRS will be the ones going after you.

Of course, everything is above board. The IRS gets their cut as well.

The majority of money in the anti cannabis movement is from the liquor industry and lobbyists. That should speak for itself.

"Sessions suggests Trump admin could stamp out legal pot"

Washington (CNN)Sen. Jeff Sessions indicated at his confirmation hearing Tuesday that as attorney general, he might break the federal government's truce with states on marijuana. During President Barack Obama's administration, states have been allowed to "experiment" with legalizing pot, and the Justice Department, under Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, has allowed many legal operations to continue without laying down the full weight of federal law against them.

-Looking for better sources.

NORML responds:

"NORML Responds to Sessions' Marijuana Comments"


"After finally being put on the spot and questioned on the issue, we are no closer to clarity in regards to Sessions' plans for how to treat state marijuana laws than we were yesterday. If anything, his comments are a cause for concern and can be interpreted as leaving the door open for enforcing federal law in legalized states," stated NORML Executive Director Erik Altieri, "If Sessions wants to be an Attorney General for ALL Americans, he must bring his views in line with the majority of the population and support allowing states to set their own marijuana policies without fear of federal intervention."
