Oregon joins the list of states that are not afraid to clash head-on with Head Narc Jeff Sessions. In a heated letter dated Tuesday, Oregon state Governor Kate Brown addresses Sessions, defending her state’s strong Cannabis regulations against a police report forwarded by the Attorney General regarding the “efficacy of marijuana regulatory structures.”
Questions were initially directed by Sessions to Brown along with three other states: Alaska, Washington, and Colorado where recreational pot is now legalized.
Brown pushes back, stating that marijuana laws in Oregon are working, and explaining the efforts that the state dedicates to keeping the public safe.
“Oregon has been diligent in reaching out to our federal partners to build a collaborative and mutually beneficial understanding regarding our marijuana system,” Brown says.
The letter details and traces the fate of marijuana produce in Oregon from seed to sale, disclosing further that all cannabis products in the state are duly tested to ensure safety, with solid sanctions and punishments for those dare operate outside the legal framework.
The letter also set to clarify that the police report introduced by Sessions only concerned with providing a baseline understanding of cannabis in the state before it was legalized and offer very little insight of the operating regulatory structure of the state on the drug after it has been decriminalized.
She further points out major flaws in the report, including inaccurate data and incorrect conclusions.
Attorney General Sessions is a widely known opposing character against cannabis legalization. Many are worried that the general will reverse or alter the guidance set by the previous administration concerning the legalization of marijuana in the state level.
For now, the drug is only legal in eight US states for recreational purposes but advocacy for legalization in the federal level has risen throughout the years.
