The next U.S. attorney general is going to have to respect the decision of Colorado and other states to legalize recreational and medical marijuana — at least if Republican Sen. Cory Gardner has his way.

Marijuana proponents were elated Tuesday after major cannabis measures passed in Michigan and Missouri and Democrats took control of the House.

The more states that legalize cannabis, the likelier it is that federal prohibition will topple soon.

“Marijuana is going to win big today, and it’s going to win in a number of places,” GOP Strategist Michael McKeon predicted on Market Movers ahead of the outcome of today’s midterm elections.

There are glimmers of hope now that Sessions has left office. For all of his anti-cannabis bluster, it seems like his former boss doesn’t share his opinion, and that could lead to new legal protections for the industry.

After the mid-term elections, the nation may look even more cannabis-friendly.
