Senator Sessions is now the US Attorney General. Activists against Prohibition wait nervously to see what the new Administration will do….
There have been uncertain signals over the past few months from President Trump and a number of his advisers — everything from harsh rhetoric to States’ Rights Libertarianism.
Specific policies may come soon.
As we wait, those of us in the legalization community may wish to ponder the following thoughts:
Regardless of what the Feds do, there are still many battles to be fought on the state and local level.
On the Left, there is intense competition for activists. Issues of overt racism can bring demonstrators to the streets. Our issue is one of racism as well, but of a less direct form. Stirring up people to work for incarceration reform takes constant effort.
Street protests have a place, but so does policy work within the system.
There are many Trump supporters on our side. Care must be taken not to alienate them.
Even if there is a federal crackdown on retail cannabis sales, an expanding culture of home growing is beyond their ability to suppress.
Federal arm twisting can easily force college administrators to act as government stooges. Yet those administrator’s position, as inherent antagonists for students, creates great organizing potential for an important body of activists.
We must always be cautious of our cause being portrayed as hedonism, or as a matter of purely commercial concern. A better society with expanded human rights is our true goal.
