US Editorial: Only Congress Can Keep Jeff Sessions' Reefer Madness In

MAP Drugnews - Top Stories - Tue, 07/31/2018 - 00:00
Baltimore Sun, 27 Jul 2018 - Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions' decision to withdraw an Obama-era directive discouraging the enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized pot shouldn't surprise anyone familiar with Sessions' views on drug laws. The attorney general has every right to enforce federal drug laws as vigorously as he sees fit. But just because he can doesn't mean he should. The truth is that resuming the discredited war on marijuana would be neither a smart step nor welcome policy, and just the threat of it is a reminder of the shortsightedness of the federal government's approach to drugs.
