Attorney General Jeff Sessions told reporters March 6 from the Department of Justice that he thinks there is “real violence” behind the use of recreational marijuana, but Colorado’s marijuana advocates and others across the country are using state and local-level data to push back on Trump administration claims that legalizing marijuana somehow increases crime rates." Sessions also told reporters he had a meeting the same day with the attorney general of Nebraska, who has expressed concerns about marijuana being transported from Colorado into Nebraska.
