(Salem, OR) -- The confirmation of U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions as the next attorney general poses a big challenge to the legal marijuana industry. Sessions told the Caucus on International Narcotics Control last April that the drug is dangerous and that "good people don't smoke marijuana." However, President Trump said during his campaign that marijuana legalization should be left to the states. About 56 percent of Washington voters and nearly 55 percent in Colorado cast ballots in 2012 to legalize recreational marijuana, which is now also legal in Oregon, California, Alaska, and the District of Columbia.
