WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marijuana became legal recreationally throughout the state Monday.
Now just days later, top officials are calling for the federal prosecutors to take action.
Although Prop 64 made marijuana legal in California, the drug is still illegal federally.
In states which have already legalized cannabis, federal prosecutors have been instructed to deprioritize those enforcements.
Now Attorney General Jeff Sessions is giving way to those federal prosecutors act more aggressively – putting California’s newest recreational cannabis businesses at risk.
The industry could generate billions of dollars in California, depending if federal prosecutors decide to crackdown.
