After a Wednesday morning meeting with US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Sen.
The same day Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced that the state's first dispensary for medical marijuana is ready for business, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he's rescinded an order that stopped federal prosecutors from going after marijuana sales in states where it's legal.
Rivers called the USA attorney general's position "misguided", and claimed that Washington state has all but eliminated the black market for marijuana, while Sessions' new federal guidelines could bring it back. A state may choose to have no ban on marijuana, or a ban with an exception for medical use, or a law allowing possession of small amounts of the drug, or anything else it wants.
Sessions is "rescinding a trio of memos from the Obama administration that adopted a policy of non-interference with marijuana-friendly state laws, according to a source with knowledge of the decision", CNN reported Thursday.
The Trump administration's policy drew criticism from some lawmakers and marijuana advocates, as well as left states that have legalized the drug, seeking clarification on how the move could impact them. "It would be a temporary but a necessary fix, as I continue to push my Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, which would finally lift the federal prohibition on marijuana".
But there is hope that Sessions' action will light a fire under efforts by the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, a bipartisan group of pro-legalization lawmakers established previous year.
Ultimately, though, the question is whether states should be able to decide this question for themselves, including choosing to gain the taxes from legalmarijuana.

Last year, the West Virginia Legislature passed a bill that will make medical marijuanalegal to receive on July 1, 2019.
To navigate this inconsistency, the Obama DOJ set forth clear enforcement priorities that focused federal resources on the most serious activities related to marijuana: for example, prosecution of marijuana distribution to minors, marijuana-related activity to support cartels or as cover for other illegal activity, or the use of firearms in connection with the cultivation and distribution of marijuana.
