Because Donald Trump came to Washington and appointed anti-pot Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, the nation’s top law enforcement officer, the state of Colorado has decided to abandon plans to begin making new rules for the state’s “pot clubs.”

Liberal lawmakers in the Centennial State intended to begin drafting legislation to govern the marijuana clubs created so users can gather and smoke pot like one would go to a bar to drink alcohol. One of the changes to the state rules would have allowed users to bring their own pot to the clubs.

But with AG Sessions and his continued focus on upholding federal laws that outlaw marijuana, the state has pulled back on these plans, The Hill reported.

Even the state’s Democrat governor, John Hickenlooper, warned legislators to abandon the proposed pot rules noting that it may trigger more focus on the state by federal officials.

“Given the uncertainty in Washington, this is not the time to be… trying to carve off new turf and expand markets and make dramatic statements about marijuana,” Hickenlooper told The Denver Post.

The state currently sports about 30 private pot clubs, but instead of being regulated by specific state rules, they exist under a patchwork of local city and county rules. It is a situation that pot users say is unfair.

The pot industry trembled in uncertainty once President Trump nominated former Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions to the AG’s office. But soon after he came to office and asserted his intention to fully enforce anti-pot federal laws, even Sessions expressed his shock that many people opposed his decision.
