In response to Jeff Sessions’ recent repeal of the Obama-era Cole memo, California lawmakers are taking a stand. California will not tolerate federal enforcement actions against legal cannabis businesses.
Assembly Bill 1578 has been proposed by Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer, D-Los Angeles, which would protect the will of voters who legalized marijuana in 2016. “The intent of Assembly Bill 1578 is to provide state agencies with the protection they need to uphold state laws without federal interference,” Jones-Sawyer said in a statement. “What Jeff Sessions is proposing is not a return to ‘Rule of Law’ as he claims; instead he is taking away access to cannabis for children with chronic diseases, cancer patients, seniors and veterans.”
