    Jeff Sessions Isn’t Giving up on Weed. He’s Doubling Down.

    Congressional dysfunction may do what the pot-hating attorney general hasn’t managed to do all year: Remove protections for the booming legal weed industry.

Since the product has no serial numbers how hard would it be to buy out of state and simply transfer the product to refill a package bearing the state's tax stamp?
    Actually, they do have serial numbers in WA state.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    It could, but it won't. Sessions is determined to shut down the industry and enforce current federal laws against state's wishes.

    What do they use? A QR code or a UPC on each tiny bit or bud?

    There's a lot of money (= political clout) behind the growing pot industry. It might get messy as the DOJ/DEA Storm Troopers ravage the legitimate outlets & grow rooms, but I feel confident that they will find a middle ground somewhere. It's hard for a politician to argue when there is big money involved.

    If Trump were smart, he would push to have it decriminalized and use the fact that it would put a choke on dangerous drug cartels since marijuana is still a major source of funds for them.
