Point/Counterpoint, a monthly feature on the Opinion page, is an exercise in civic engagement.
In this entry, we look at Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ reversal of the Obama Administration’s go-easy approach to enforcing federal marijuana laws in states where cannabis is legal.
Should federal drug-control laws supplant state laws? Or should state marijuana laws prevail?
We asked our guest columnists to weigh in on the matter.
Point/Counterpoint is anchored by two prominent citizens, Rick Rushton, former city councilor and local attorney, and Roberta Schaefer, founder and former president of The Regional Research Bureau. They tackle important local, regional and national issues.
