Former Seattle Police Chief: We Could Become a ‘Sanctuary City’ for Marijuana

Former Seattle Police Chief: We Could Become a ‘Sanctuary City’ for Marijuana

 | Nov 25th, 2016

With the reality of Donald Trump as president, we can probably all agree that there are much more important things at stake than marijuana. Still, Trump’s decision to appoint U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General hassome in the industry freaking out at the possibility of a federal crackdown on the fledgling industry.

But if so, it’s possible that local law enforcement will defy the federal government if a new administration decides to take a hard line approach toward marijuana. This is according to Norm Stamper, who served as Seattle Police Chief between 1994 and 2000 and has since become a leading critic on the War on Drugs. Stamper speculates that local law enforcement might take this approach, which he compares to Seattle’s decision to remain a sanctuary city for undocumented immigrants in the wake of a Trump presidency.
