I was just going to post this in the group, but decided it's important to everyone. Whether you use marijuana or not, I have no doubt that you know someone who could be helped from it's proven medical benefits. I also agree with Gupta that making medical marijuana available to all would be a significant tool against the opioid crisis. The drugs aren't working, and are making things exponentially worse for everyone.
Unfortunately, I just don't think Sessions will be encouraged to use reason and compassion, and rethink his position. Science doesn't mean much to 45 or his "administration". Perhaps, flooding the AG's office, and the DoJ, with copies of this letter, and letters of our own, might at least open a few closed minds.
Weed is legal in Washington State. It's a huge boost to our economy. It is a highly taxed money maker for the state and has created employment opportunities for thousands. For me, I love that my local pot shop is 2miles away. no more looking for dealers. It's a win-win for all.
Thanks for sharing. I've seen the Weed series, and look forward to watching #4. Sessions is an authoritarian and bigot, which are the main reasons he's anti-cannabis. I'm not sure anything will change his mind, but I think sending this letter may be a good idea and couldn't hurt unless it causes him to dig his heels in deeper.
