Cannabis Industry Nervous over Trump’s Nomination of Senator Sessions for Attorney General

President Elect Trump has nominated Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. This is one of the most powerful political positions that is responsible for enforcing US federal law. This isn’t great news for the US cannabis industry. Sessions doesn’t support cannabis legalization and is not friendly to the fast growing industry. The nomination has made the cannabis industry and investors nervous. Will Sessions crack down on cannabis companies? I don’t think he will. I view it as a roadblock, not a death sentence. The US cannabis industry is stronger, more powerful and better financed than ever. I don’t believe one man even with tremendous political power can thwart the industry’s desire to grow.
