Attorney General Jeff Sessions Resigns at President Trump’s Request

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned Wednesday at the request of President Trump.

“At your request, I am submitting my resignation,” Sessions wrote to Trump on Twitter, adding that he was “honored to serve” the president.

The news will come as a positive for marijuana advocates, given Sessions’ long-standing war against the plant. However, it’s very possible whoever Trump appoints as the next permanent AG will also oppose marijuana – though maybe not as much as Sessions.
