Michigan, Vermont, New Jersey: The states trying to legalize marijuana in 2018


The Drug Enforcement Agency came three years later, created to investigate and prosecute use of marijuana.

"The people of MA voted to legalize marijuana and the state is working diligently to fulfill its obligations to the voters", Capuano said in a statement. While an overwhelming number of Democrats opposed the approach championed by Sessions, the question cleaved Republicans. American voters have a 47-14 percent unfavorable opinion of the attorney general. Soon, with Nebraska considering medical use, Kansas may well be surrounded by states that allow varying degrees of legalization. This is actually slightly different than a poll released in October 2017 that found that the majority of Republican voters do support marijuana legalization. So why the backlash on legalizing marijuana? "In light of the many positive health outcomes that were highlighted throughout the legislative process, including the fact that medical marijuana has been shown to reduce opioid related deaths in other states, I would hope the federal government would engage in a thoughtful conversation with the states about how we should all proceed with the public's best interest in mind". The challenges could just be getting started. "I supported federal policy under the Obama administration", he said.

"Legalize marijuana so police can focus resources on violent crimes", Murphy says on his campaign website.

"It is no coincidence that immediately after California, a liberal state, legalized cannabis for adult-use, AG Sessions chose to announce his change in policy", said Rudder. He said his dispensary in the city was raided in 2009, and he was even convicted in 2011 for selling marijuana illegally.

Sessions' rescinding of the Obama administration's hands-off approach, though, has stirred unease in MA entrepreneurs gearing up for the July kickoff of reefer madness. That's because the TSX has said it may delist marijuana stocks which run afoul of USA federal law. Cory Gardner of Colorado said the shift contradicted the assurance Sessions had given him, and he threatened to block all Justice Department nominations in response.

The haze of bipartisan congressional hypocrisy is thicker than the air in a marijuana bar.

Lamborghini Urus SUV launched in India, priced at Rs3 crore
Mumbai: Italian luxury carmaker Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. launched its Urus sport utility vehicle (SUV) in India on Thursday. India is a strategic market for Lamborghini in terms of future growth volumes, said Sharad Agarwal, head, Lamborghini India.

Voters made Colorado and Washington the first two states to legalise recreational marijuana in 2012 and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan were the lead authors of a January 10 letter to Sessions from 10 US mayors, including New York City's Bill de Blasio. Colorado and Washington are already selling marijuana in retail settings, so will California marijuana do so as well?

"Will it make people hesitant?"

But the solution to the left's displeasure with the government's drug laws is not to ignore them and circumvent them. "It will make it harder to work with banks and lenders and larger institutions who might not want to cross the federal government".

Before the legalization of medical marijuana, people have found ways to attain the drug illegally. California marijuana merchants, he noted, "are full steam ahead". The day before the announcement, the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection put out a Request For Applications for additional medical marijuana dispensaries. The resolution, however, is toothless without action from the state legislature.

To that, U.S. Rep. Tom Garrett of Virginia said, "Challenge accepted".

"I understand there's a medical value to marijuana", he said. "I don't think so". Horizons's Life Sciences ETF attracted C$126 million ($100 million) of inflows in the first week of 2018, the most of any Canadian fund over that period, according to National Bank Financial. But Hamden believes legalizing the drug will open it up to research, rather than forcing it underground with criminal penalties for possession.
