Californians will wake up in a state with legalized recreational weed on Monday, but they’ll also be bummed out by reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions—a known marijuana Grinch—may try to keep locals from freely enjoying their new right to get high.
Federal agents may be out looking for people with pot at eight Border Patrol checkpoints within California, according to the Associated Press. That could mean that Californians carrying legal weed may still have it taken away by agents of the federal government, which still considers pot illegal.
Federal laws supersede state laws. As a result, marijuana detected by Border Patrol is still illegal, regardless of a person’s state citizenship.
