After Sessions' Decision, Marijuana Activists In Mass. Fear Emerging Industry May Be In Jeopardy03:35


U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to repeal the so-called "Cole memo" — an Obama-era document that's allowed states to legalize marijuana even though it's illegal at the federal level — is expected to have a chilling effect on the emerging marijuana industry in Massachusetts, for both recreational and medical use.

WBUR's Steve Brown joined All Things Considered with a report on what this decision is and what it might mean for Massachusetts.
