Worcester Business Journal quotes Jon Barooshian in “The Massachusetts pot industry anxious after threats of federal crackdown”

The Worcester Business Journal has quoted Jon Barooshian in “The Massachusetts pot industry anxious after threats of federal crackdown.” The article discusses the recent threat of stricter federal drug laws and what this could mean for the developing marijuana industry in Massachusetts. The following is an excerpt from the article:

“That threat came on Jan. 4 when U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded a trio of memos from former Obama Administration Deputy Attorney General James Cole directing federal law enforcement not interfere with the marijuana industry in states where it has been legalized. That includes Massachusetts, where medical pot has been legal since 2012 and recreational pot since December 2016….Following Sessions’ actions, the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, did little to calm down the industry when he refused to say participants in state-level marijuana trade wouldn’t be charged with federal crimes.”
