Trump Admin Declares War on Marijuana in Las Vegas

Leaving no doubt that the Trump Administration is not pro-pot at all: Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary implied today that Trump has ordered Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General of the US Department of Justice to shut down the Marijuana industry in Nevada.

Spicer suggested that the country has enough on its plate with the “opioid crisis,” and that “the last thing” we should be doing is encouraging recreational cannabis use.

“I believe you are going to see greater enforcement” of federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized the drug for recreational use, Spicer said.

“The Department of Justice will be further looking into this,” he said.
