No marijuana policy changes after Gardner meets with Sessions

In case anyone was anxious that all 1,000 US adults surveyed are marijuana users, 74 percent said they had not consumed cannabis in the past year.

"Folks, unfortunately, this means we are back to CASH ONLY transactions until further notice". As a result, Revolutionary Clinics and at least nine other medical dispensaries of the 17 now operating in the state will soon only accept cash. Dispensaries do not accept credit card payments.

Sessions is not well informed on effects of marijuana, comparing it to heroin and blaming it for violence. "It will only get worse". Several did not return calls or emails requesting comment.

But Sessions's memo rescinding the Obama-era policy did not address how financial institutions who do business with marijuana growers, processors and distributors should handle the new policy.

"As patients, we've become very accustomed to being able to go in and use our debit cards".

"That said, President Trump has been on record in past years saying he was for the legalization of medical cannabis and saying he's for states' rights and for states making their own decisions when it comes to legalizing cannabis", he said. "It's really going to cause a lot of inconveniences for a lot of sick people".

"This clarified an earlier statement in which the U.S. Attorney said, ".the Attorney General rescinded the Cole Memo on marijuana prosecutions and directed that federal marijuana prosecution decisions be governed by the same principles that govern all federal prosecution decisions.

Lelling has issued two statements addressing how his office will proceed with federal marijuana law enforcement in light of the new guidance from Sessions. Since the Cole memo was written, the marijuana industry in the United States has flourished.

Additionally, respondents believe fairly overwhelmingly that marijuana laws should not be determined at the federal level, with only 32 percent agreeing that federal law should rule the issue.

Colorado is one of eight states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use. The amendment was co-sponsored by Rep. Earl Blumenauer of OR, a Democrat, and its protections were extended through January 19 as part of the temporary government funding bill passed in Congress last month.

The Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment is still in place, Ostrowitz said. While it is far from a done deal, I am hopeful that we can attach language to the government funding bill to protect legalized recreational and medical marijuana. The state lawmakers will not meet again until 2019.

Gardner has convened a bipartisan group of senators to work on legislation protecting states with legal marijuana.

Activists from both organizations may have a receptive senator in U.S. Sen. "I think it should be up to the states, absolutely". "C'mon. Smarter than that", Sabet tweeted.

Polis has been a longtime advocate for updating federal marijuana policy.

"This will *not* affect any "patients".
