I've said before that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a marijuana flat-Earther, out of step with society and science, and way, way behind the times.
In fact, his views on pot are so regressive that his mere nomination for the post of "Top Cop" last year sent all kinds of legal cannabis stocks plummeting. That's a phenomenon we observed virtually every time Sessions took to the podium in an official capacity to talk about federal drug policy.
However, I've also said that legal marijuana is an unstoppable freight train and that there's hardly a thing Sessions could do to stop it. In addition to saying it here in Money Morning, thousands of people heard me make that big claim during my Pot Stock Summit last month.
That's no idle talk, either. As of right now, we've got 100% confirmation that Jeff Sessions has been totally beaten in his quest to roll back the pot prohibition clock to 1968.
Here's how we got it: We went right into the "belly of the beast" in Washington and one of the biggest pot trade shows on Earth, to find out about Jeff Sessions' defeat and an even bigger development in a market that's set to hit $55 billion by 2025.

Turns out, the folks actually in Washington are equally optimistic.
