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.

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.

This type of reporting heretofore had been referred to as "Yellow Dog Journalism," and has been a part of the American lexicon for as far back as the nation’s founding. Mostly, it was used as a method of casting aspersions against political opponents.
