The new Massachusetts U.S. Attorney, Andrew Lelling, was forced to make a statement after Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memo in early January, resulting in demands from cannabis advocates to detail his plans as federal prosecutor.

As the country legalizes marijuana state by state, the Trump administration seems to be dead-set on preserving the current federal marijuana law that classifies cannabis as a Schedule I drug, thereby making it illegal on the federal level.

By rescinding the federal policy to refrain from enforcing federal law in states with legal marijuana, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has effectively terrified people who are invested in legal marijuana businesses. His actions may also prove to be beneficial for drug cartels if people are scared enough to avoid registering with the state and making themselves a target for arrest when Sessions starts his anticipated cannabis crackdown. The revoked federal policy, called the Cole Memo, was established to protect legalized states from federal prosecution.

Let's have a look at the laws governing the new recreational cannabis marketplace in California:

California will implement legalized recreational marijuana on Jan. 1, and there is a provision within the new state law that will essentially erase criminal convictions of marijuana possession. Anyone convicted for possessing less than one ounce of cannabis can have their record reduced or erased in the state. The Washington Post reported that the new law is in line with a movement brewing across the country to eliminate and decrease penalties emanating from the war on drugs as penitence. Minorities have been disproportionately targeted and arrested for marijuana at frightening rates for years, and lawmakers in legal states are trying to make amends.
