Inside the plan to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana

In the United States, marijuana is still illegal on the federal level, despite being legal either recreationally or medicinally in 29 states. This gap in regulation is creating confusion for those operating legal cannabis businesses in the states where it is legal. U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced a comprehensive bill to regulate and tax marijuana to Congress last month. Rep. Blumenauer joined CBSN with Bill Piper, senior director of the Office of National Affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance, to talk about the bill -- and where American marijuana is headed next.

6. Maybe.

There's also this to consider:

I'm certain that people at the DOJ have informed Sessions of the assorted potential consequences of this "crackdown" he's likely envisioning- and that is even with a best case scenario of an expensive, politically unpopular series of prosecutions for which it would be virtually impossible to land a jury willing to actually convict.

8. Sessions should recuse himself from this and all other civil rights matters.

He is comprised by his bigotry.
