Events this week this week have reduced anxiety of people who were worried that the feds were about to go on a crusade against marijuana legalization. For one thing, Attorney General Jeff Sessions got a bit sidetracked with the controersy over what he talked about with the Russians. Sessions is the person who stirred up a frenzy by suggesting that the feds were going to step up prohibition again. He said before that good people do not smoke marijuana and led many to speculate that recreational marijuana was about to be made illegal everywhere. So, Sessions has been busy recusing himself from investigations of Russian involvement in the presidential campaign and confronting calls for his resignation.
