    “Marijuana money increasingly flowing to Republican lawmakers” https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2018/01/21/marijuana-money-increasingly-flowing-republican-lawmakers/1042239001/ “Marijuana business owners are increasingly pouring their profits into lobbying lawmakers as they face a federal crackdown from the Trump administration.
    A USA TODAY survey found hundreds of thousands of dollars flowing from the cannabis industry into campaign finance accounts of both lawmakers and political action committees, with emphasis this year on Congressional Republicans who are trying to stop the Trump administration from targeting marijuana businesses.
    Combined, medical and recreational marijuana marketplaces across the country are worth a staggering $8 billion, and last year generated at least $2 billion in taxes, said Matt Karnes of cannabis data firm GreenWave Advisors. It’s no surprise those businesses want to protect what they’ve built, experts say.”

    “In the third week of November, the DEA took unprecedented action in finally approving THC for consumption as a federally regulated Class II-level substance. This may sound like great news, but the details will disappoint. This particular THC – which was also approved by the FDA last March – is completely synthetic, and is not made from pot. Nor has pot become recognized as legal; to the contrary, the synthetic substance known as delta-9-THC (or simply dronabinol) was created with no vested interest in cannabis legalization, and is the only federally legal THC that exists. Only one company is able to sell it to the public.
    Donabinol, created to relieve nausea in cancer patients, comes in only one form: a liquid spray sold under the name Syndros. Syndros is manufactured exclusively by pharmaceutical Insys, a company which came under fire in recent months for bribing doctors to supply a form of the often-fatally potent opioid, Fentanyl, to patients who didn’t need the medication. Though this created a massive lawsuit that forced the founder of Insys to resign, the company is still up and running and, inexplicably, is the only establishment in the country that the DEA and FDA have approved to supply synthetic THC.
    The DEA describes in explicit terms that while Syndros is legal in Schedule II, marijuana is still listed as a Schedule I drug.” http://www.corvallisadvocate.com/2018/can-get-thc/

    A 24-year-old former Trump campaign worker who rose rapidly to a senior post in the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy will step down by the end of the month because of controversy surrounding his appointment, the White House said late Wednesday. Taylor Weyeneth, who graduated from college in May 2016, was named a White House liaison to the drug office the following March and then promoted to deputy chief of staff in July, at age 23. His only professional experience after college and before becoming a political appointee was working on the Trump presidential campaign. The office, known as ONDCP, is responsible for coordinating anti-drug initiatives at 16 federal agencies and supporting President Trump’s efforts to confront the opioid epidemic. https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/trumps-24-year-old-drug-policy-appointee-to-step-down-by-months-end/2018/01/24/77ce5656-0159-11e8-8acf-ad2991367d9d_story.html
    The work of President Donald Trump’s opioid commission has been turned into a “sham” and a “charade” by Republican-led Congress, a member of the panel said. Trump in October declared a 90-day public health emergency around the opioid epidemic—but he did not make new funding available to address the issue. “It means nothing if it has no funding to push it forward,” former Democratic Representative Patrick Kennedy, one of six members appointed to the bipartisan commission in March, told CNN in a report published Tuesday. http://www.newsweek.com/trump-opioid-commissions-work-sham-member-says-788144

    “Despite Liberalizing Marijuana Laws, the War on Drugs Still Targets People of Color” https://theintercept.com/2018/01/25/marijuana-legalization-weed-drug-arrest/
    “In 2016, more people were arrested for simple marijuana possession in the United States than all violent crimes combined. More than one person is arrested every minute for marijuana possession in this country. An astounding 574,641 people were arrested for simple marijuana possession in the U.S. in 2016 — that’s 89 percent of all marijuana-related arrests. These aren’t dealers, distributors, or kingpins. They are just everyday people with a little bit of weed.”

    “As federal prisons run low on guards, nurses and cooks are filling in” https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/02/13/ill-equipped-and-inexperienced-hundreds-civilian-staffers-assigned-guard-duties-federal-prison-secur/316616002/ “Hundreds of secretaries, teachers, counselors, cooks and medical staffers were tapped last year to fill guard posts across the Bureau of Prisons because of acute officer shortages and overtime limits, according to prison records reviewed by USA TODAY and staff interviews.
    The moves were made despite repeated warnings that the assignments placed unprepared employees at risk. And the practice has continued for years even though the agency has been rebuked by Congress and federal labor arbitrators.”

  6. Corroborating witness says:

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday night for firing the deputy FBI director, and said Sessions needs to be able to stand up to President Trump and not do everything he wants.
    “You’re the attorney general of the United States. You run the damn Justice Department, you know?” Holder said in remarks at Georgetown University on Monday night.
    “And you’ve got to have the guts to look at the president every now and again and say, ‘no,'” he said. (Washington Examiner 3/20/18) https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/eric-holder-slams-jeff-sessions-youve-got-to-have-the-guts-to-say-no-to-trump

  7. Update says:

    “Trump suggests he will support ending federal ban on marijuana — putting him at odds with Sessions” https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-news-trump-marijuana-sessions-20180608-story.html “President Trump said he likely will support a congressional effort to end the federal ban on marijuana, a major step that would reshape the pot industry and end the threat of a Justice Department crackdown.
    Trump’s remarks put him sharply at odds with Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions on the issue. The bill in question, pushed by a bipartisan coalition, would allow states to go forward with legalization unencumbered by threats of federal prosecution.”
