Medical Marijuana Providers Maybe be Federally Prosecuted

Medical marijuana use may be heading to a new challenge for medical providers in workers' compensation case. Even though some States have authorized regulation and approval of dispensing medical marijuana, a Federal law allowing the practice is up for Congressional review.

That practice will be quickly reversed if U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session convinces Congress otherwise in accordance with a letter Sessions recently sent to Congress.
