    Because it's the law on the books. The job of the AG is to defend and enforce the law, not decide what should and should not be enforced.

    What's the big deal either way though? Does smoking have a benefit over edibles, vaping or liquids?

    Not sure about the medical aspects but traditional smoking will not get a person nearly as high as edibles etc . The edibles and oils will continue to stack doses on top of each other while smoking seems to have a cap and more smoking has little or no additional effect .

    Or so I’ve heard

    This is Florida, not the Fed.

    I do. He said so during his confirmation. He said he's going to enforce every law, and if people don't like that, they should change it.

    As much as I cannot stand Sessions (don't get me started), as a Libertarian, I'm glad he's doing this. That's what we really need right now, people getting the full enforcement of the law, so it will push people to change the law.

    That said ... this is a state case and matter, not federal. Sessions has nothing to do with this.

    1. DeSantis stopped fighting this and thankfully allowed medicinal marijuana to fully proceed in FL

    2. I just had a video sent to me from a family friend whose kid suffers from epilepsy and upon going into a seizure, they gave him a syringe of cannabis prescribed by their doctor and within a minute the seizure was over. This shit needs to be more readily available for medical purposes

    That’s awesome. Glad the kid has something that can help. I saw a video the other day of a man with Parkinson’s that was shaking like crazy - wouldn’t have been able to hold a feather bad - he smoked and was sitting normally and carrying on a conversation.

    Within 5 years it’ll probably be federally legal for anyone, definitely medicinal though.

    It's a plant. People should be able to grow it in their backyard and not be a scam to buy.

    First point is spot on and what we should ask of our public servants. If an attorney general doesn't enforce the law as it is written then that person needs to find another line of work.

    My personal opinion is that it's a stupid law and needs to be overturned, but there is a right way of doing it.

    This is a bit naive. Cocaine and heroin both come from plants as well. Both of those plants have some effect in their unaltered forms.

    With that said, marijuana doesn’t have the same impact of the other two and should never have been illegal in the first place.
