Business Insider

Below is an excerpt:

Larry Cote, a partner with the law firm Quarles & Brady and a leading Drug Enforcement Administration compliance attorney, said that he suspects Sessions will be a "strong opponent," within the Trump administration of "any efforts to legalize or re-schedule marijuana." 

"While the pro-legalization lobby may have been riding a high after marijuana initiatives passed in several states on November 8, the nomination of Sen. Sessions as the next Attorney General [sic] will have a sobering effect on those seeking fewer federal restrictions on the use of marijuana," Larry Cote, told Business Insider.
