this is 1 reason why legal at state level dont work. the feds can and do come in and bust it up.
medical marijuana is legal in my state but that basically gives me freedom from prosecution at this point. if i want to have a job and support my family i can not enjoy what is medically legal even though i have a qualifying condition. i am still subject to employer drug tests and even with my condition and a medical card i can be fired.
needs to be legal at the federal level
Too many ending up with long prison sentence which ruin the rest of their life more than marijuana would.

Sorry, but this is from Spicer's press conference today. It's out of the mouth of Trump's press secretary directly. This is as official as it gets until I guess Trump tweets about it from the toilet.
And Sessions is more than against weed - in the late 90s he sponsored a law that would have meant the death penalty over pot.

I agree fully. I'm very much for medical use for patients that have actually been prescribed it. They shouldn't have to worry about getting arrested.
Hopefully this administration works this out if not then I believe the next one will. It can't be too far off.
For non-medical. It won't happen until there are changes at the UN level.
legal at state level gives people freedom from prosecution but that is about it.
dispensaries can still be raided and people can still lose their jobs for taking their medicine
