Recreational marijuana is legal in California, but not at the federal level. An Assembly committee passed a bill this week that would bar state and local police from helping federal agents crack down on those who grow and sell recreational marijuana. Attorney General Jeff Sessions opposes recreational pot, and recently signalled that a federal crackdown may be on the way.
Will California become a sanctuary state for weed?
