“If Sessions picks this fight, he’s going to lose,” said Chistov, an investor in the Honest Marijuana Company in Colorado, the first of eight states that have legalized pot for non-medical use. “He’s going to be fighting against the money.”
Recreational pot is already for sale in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, where Chistov praises its benefits to the economy.
“I’m not changing my business plan one iota,” he said. “This is the winning strategy.” He said legal pot’s popularity will help him prevail against any possible federal intervention, which would cost too much tax money to implement effectively.
