Jeff Sessions Goes After Oregon’s Pot

Jeff Sessions Goes After Oregon’s Pot

September 13, 2017 | Kiki Genoa

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ most recent correspondence with Governor Kate Brown has left Oregonians wondering how far the feds are willing to go to tarnish the reputation of our burgeoning cannabis economy. 

In early April, Brown, alongside the governors of Alaska, Colorado, and Washington, wrote to Sessions asking that he retain rules outlined by the 2013 Cole Memorandum – an agreement between the federal and state governments regarding the legality of recreational cannabis. 

The agreement, if upheld, ensures that as long as each state selling legal weed implements a seed-to-sale tracking system monitoring the growth and distribution of government-regulated cannabis that is available for federal review, the federal government will leave said states alone and allow them to conduct their business without federal interference.
