'Trump has declared war on California': state defiant as White House take aim

'Trump has declared war on California': state defiant as White House take aim
Battle lines between liberal politicians and the president intensified this week as Trump’s administration targeted cannabis, immigrants and the environment
Jeff Sessions to crack down on legalized marijuana

In the first hours of 2018, Californians toasted with “Happy New Year blunts” and marijuana gummies, celebrating the launch of the largest legal pot market in the world.

Three days later, Donald Trump’s administration announced a policy that could allow US prosecutors to target legal marijuana operations and undermine California’s massive cannabis movement.

“There should be no doubt that President Trump has officially declared war on California,” state senate leader Kevin de León told the Guardian on Thursday after the US attorney general, Jeff Sessions, rescinded an Obama-era policy that opened the door for states to legalize marijuana.

The federal government’s war on the Golden State – which overwhelmingly rejected the president in 2016 and has become a liberal leader in the anti-Trump resistance – has intensified in recent days with the administration threatening California’s immigrants, world-famous coastal shores, taxpayers and weed smokers.

2. GOOD! Bring it on you fucking moron!

CA alone has enough congressional seats that could flip from GOP to Dem in the midterms and I hope enough people in the red areas are pissed off enough to vote Dem. I hope the recent fires, a result of Climate Change, is still fresh in people's minds when they vote too.
