This week the analysts commented on the nomination by President-elect Donald Trump of Senator Jeff Sessions as the next Attorney General of the United States:
The nomination of Alabama Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions for the position of US Attorney General (AG) by Donald Trump has sent waves of apprehension through the legal cannabis industry. New York Magazine collected numerous anti-cannabis quotes made through the years by the southern legislator, including testimony from his 1986 Senate confirmation hearings for a federal judgeship, when an African-American colleague stated that Sessions told him that he was okay with the Ku Klux Klan, “until [he] found out they smoked pot.” Additionally, the report calls attention to the confirmation hearings of current AG Loretta Lynch, in which Sessions expressed a desire that the nation’s top prosecutor enforce the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), under which cannabis remains illegal and classified as a Schedule I narcotic.
