This Obama-era memo had allowed states to set their own cannabis rules and regulations, with minimal intervention by the federal government. In rescinding the memo, the Trump administration has flouted the U.S. Constitution’s provision to reserve most powers to the states, a precept that the Libertarian Party holds as fundamental to the federalist structure the country’s founders crafted.

Of course, Congress members that have economic links (campaign funding, personal investments, family business, etc.) to Pharms that want to keep un-patented, public-domain natural medicines out of competition ought recuse themselves from voting on this. The appearance (if not actuality) of an honest vote is impossible otherwise.
