In the news today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has rescinded an Obama era policy instructioning law enforcement to be lenient on enforcing federal marijuana laws, a policy that led to six states legalizing marijuana, one of which is Maine.  The new policy allows state prosecutors to decide for themselves how aggressively to enforce federal marijuana laws.  this raises the age-old constitutional issue of the power of individual states versus the power of the federal government.
