Massachusetts is looking into whether a little known FAA rule
will allow flying pot to Martha’s Vineyard and other state islands.
Marijuana Moment says Michigan will likely vote on REC next year
, and Missouri, Oklahoma and Utah will likely vote on MED. Tom Angell’s site also found tough cannabis questions
posed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R) by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy (D). They included “Do you stand by your recently stated view that ‘marijuana is only slightly less awful than heroin?” It’s not known when Sessions will reply.
Sessions continues to reaffirm
his dislike for marijuana saying at the Heritage Foundation, “We’ve got to reestablish first a view that you should say no. People should say no to drug use…This whole country needs to be not so lackadaisical about drugs. … Much of the addiction starts with marijuana. It’s not a harmless drug.”
In an interview with anti-pot conservative Hugh Hewitt, Sessions said he believes the Justice Department has the authority to crack down on state industries but declined to comment
on whether an investigation is in progress.
