According to a report from Marijuana Moment, Attorney General Jeff Sessions seems to have changed his tune on whether or not medical cannabis is an indeed medicine.
During an appearance back in April before the Senate Appropriations Commerce, Justice and Science subcommittee, Sessions admitted, “There may well be some benefits from medical marijuana,” and added that the study of cannabis is “perfectly appropriate.”
Despite earlier indications that a cannabis crackdown was imminent, Sessions told the committee that priorities for federal drug agents are fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine. “People are dying by massive amounts as a result of those drugs. We have very few, almost zero, virtually zero small marijuana cases,” he said.
