If they make it illegal, won't that suddenly make it not the #1 cash crop (at least not one that gets tax money into the state's coffers)? I'm not saying that banning it again (or rather, taking up anti-pot enforcement in a big new way) is a sensible idea, I think we're in violent agreement here, but sensibility hasn't stopped many people from doing many stupid things (such as electing Trump), because many people just aren't sensible. Plus, Sessions' anti-pot cronies stand to make a lot of money through vigorous anti-pot enforcement. Anyway, back to CAF: if they start stealing everything that pot owners and dealers have, that would quickly put a damper on things I think. What'd be interesting, however, is if the state governments turned on them and started arresting the federal agents for theft, and states started really rebelling legally against the federal government. It could get pretty ugly.
