Protecting Legal Weed from Trump

Lester Black | JAN 24, 2017

An unhinged narcissist has been inaugurated, and his pick for the top law-enforcement officer in America—a man with both a racist record and views on pot that are so archaic they make Ronald Reagan look like Rick Steves—will most likely be confirmed this month. Could things for our state’s nascent legal pot industry get any worse? Should we all start stockpiling cheap ounces before the Feds shut everything down?

Not so fast. Despite the awfulness at the top of the ticket, November’s election was a historic step forward for legal weed. Voters in four states legalized recreational weed, including the world’s sixth largest economy: California. Voters in four other states decriminalized medical cannabis. That means a staggering 68 million Americans live in states with recreationally legal cannabis; add in the 135 million Americans with access to medical cannabis and you have 63 percent of the country living under some form of legalized cannabis.
