Senate Committee Rejects Request from Sessions
IncSmart Washington DC (Small Business and Startups) - The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved an amendment to protect a state's medical marijuana program from federal government interference. This amendment is introduced despite a written request from Attorney General Sessions that wants to crack down on marijuana use. In May, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a letter to Congress asking them not to extend the protections.
