After receiving letters from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the states of Alaska and Washington defend their affirmative stance on recreational marijuana. According to HuffPost, Sessions criticized both states on the efficacy of their regulatory structures for the legal marijuana business. Governors Bill Walker (Alaska) and Jay Inslee (Washington) dismiss Sessions' allegations due to him using outdated/misleading information, suggesting that it should be up to the states to determine marijuana legalization. Gov. Walker wrote, "In Alaska, in accordance with a successful citizens’ ballot initiative, the State has implemented a comprehensive framework to regulate marijuana that we believe also protects federal interests." In both states, the people voted to legalize cannabis through a ballot initiative. "State and federal prohibition of marijuana failed to prevent its widespread use, which was generating huge profits for violent criminal organizations." wrote Gov. Inslee. What are your thoughts?
