Recreational Marijuana Legalization – Are We Headed For a Crackdown?

Sean Spicer – Press Secretary

Press Secretary Sean Spicer seems to think so as he gave us a glimpse into the future in the February 23rd press briefing .  Throughout his campaign, President Trump had stated that he supported legalization of cannabis for medical reasons, stating that he was in favor of Medical Marijuana 100% in an interview with Bill O’Reilly, going further to say “But I know people that have serious problems and they did that they really — it really does help them.”

That stance does not appear to have changed.  As Spicer acknowledged “I’ve said before that the President understands the pain and suffering that many people go through who are facing especially terminal diseases and the comfort that some of these drugs, including medical marijuana, can bring to them”  but later clarifies “There is a big difference between that and recreational marijuana . . . There is still a federal law that we need to abide by in terms of the medical — when it comes to recreational marijuana and other drugs of that nature.”

With the number of Recreational Marijuana states growing, many feel that the movement is not going to slow down and that the Federal government is beginning to recognize the will of the people.  But to get there, the movement may need to shift its focus more towards the DOJ as Spicer indicates the decision lies with them.

When asked what kind of action the Federal Government will take on recreational use, Spicer says “Well, I think that’s a question for the Department of Justice.  I do believe that you’ll see greater enforcement of it.  Because again, there’s a big difference between the medical use which Congress has, through an appropriations rider in 2014, made very clear what their intent was in terms of how the Department of Justice would handle that issue.  That’s very different than the recreational use, which is something the Department of Justice I think will be further looking into . . . but I believe that they are going to continue to enforce the laws on the books with respect to recreational marijuana . . . ”

So what does this mean for the end of Marijuana prohibition?  Is there still a chance we will see this in our lifetimes?  We think so, but perhaps getting through to the DOJ and DEA to get Cannabis removed from Schedule 1 drug status should be as high a priority as legalizing it on a state level and getting the Fed to respect state rights.  The people’s voice has spoken and going backwards on the issue is not an option.  Where do YOU think we’re headed from here?
