According to Capital Public Radio, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones and Attorney General Sessions met last week to discuss several issues; one of them just happened to be marijuana.

“Regarding the prioritization of federal resources to combat marijuana; he didn’t see the federal government getting involved in marijuana use or low-level state, what are traditionally state and local crimes”, said Sheriff Jones following the meeting. “[B]ut, I don’t think he ruled out the possibility of the federal government getting involved in larger-scale operations”; Jones says these operations would include trafficking by drug cartels, not necessarily cannabis businesses that are legal under state law.
