Last week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era set of guidelines known as the Cole and Ogden memos, which indicated the federal government would not interfere with state cannabis regulations as long as the drug was not marketed to minors, trafficked by cartels, sold across state lines, or cultivated on federal land.

Gardner apparently doesn't think his obligation to the people of Colorado includes doing his job by pushing for amendment of the offending federal law. Legal marijuana could generate $132 in federal tax revenues and 1 million new jobs. Before charting a path forward for the enforcement of marijuana in OR, we must see how the state mitigates the public safety and health issues raised here. States have been passing laws easing up on the prohibition against marijuana since 1973, when OR took the first plunge to decriminalize weed. I believe, like so many others, he is misinformed when it comes to the facts and issues related to marijuana and the history of marijuana prohibition.
