On Thursday, January 4th, Attorney General Jeff Sessions withdrew a Justice Department memo issued in 2013 by the Obama Department of Justice that told federal prosecutors to focus on prosecuting marijuana dealers who sold to children, committed violence, and did their business in states that had not legalized marijuana, rather than those states that had legalized the drug. Paul Larkin of the Heritage Foundation and Ilya Shapiro of CATO joins Moderator Marc Levin to discuss the withdrawal.
