Marijuana Industry Concerned About Trump’s Pick for Attorney General

The multibillion-dollar marijuana industry is concerned about Donald Trump’s choice for Attorney General, Senator Jeff Sessions, according to NPR. Sessions has made comments indicating he is not in favor of marijuana legalization.

As Attorney General, Sessions would oversee the Drug Enforcement Administration and federal prosecutors. In April, Sessions noted in a Senate hearing, “We need grown-ups in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized, it ought not to be minimized, that it is in fact a very real danger.” He added that “good people don’t smoke marijuana.”
