    (I sure wish journos would stop calling it "pot", btw)

    This old fart who doesn't even know what it is or does, has just gone against state rights and has repealed the existing (imperfect) protections against the feds raiding legal Cannabis users and dispensaries.

    As someone who is in a great deal of pain on a continuous basis, who cannot sleep without it, and who cannot take NSAIDS or tolerate opioids, I object!!

    Add to this that they keep trying to schedule Kratom, the only other Tx I can use for pain--which btw makes me more alert, not high, at the dose that works for me--this is disastrous.

    I am SO SICK of grumpy ancient arrogant white men trying to impose their ignorance and hatred on everyone else.

    Will cannabinoids with the THC removed be legal as they are in the UK, though I think large pharmaceutical companies would prefer that any alternative for their products were removed from the market soonest and have the political lobbying budget that generally prevails.

    I think in the U.S. that eventually money will win out over moralizing. States like Colorado and Washington have made tons of money from their legal cannabis.

    But do they have the lobbying power of Big Pharma?

    I'm sorry, but this just hit me. @Luther Blissett and @James are Sessions' puppetmasters? Jerk him around good guys! :D

    I think in the long run they will have. It's a bit of a vote loser isn't it?

    It's more than moralizing. Despite the Obama-Era "protections", many state-legal dispensaries and grow operations have been raided.
    They seize assets (including cash), throw a bunch of people into private prisons, and even raid data bases for members' info.
