Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval joined a group of 12 governors calling on Congress to pass a bill that provides federal protections to state-sponsored marijuana programs.

When the U.S. Justice Department rolled back federal protections to existing marijuana programs at the direction of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Acres Cannabis CEO John Mueller says the industry took a hit.

“All of a sudden, funding freezes up and employment freezes up. Everything in the industry starts seizing as it would in any industry,” said Mueller.

“I think by opening this back up and have the full support of the U.S. Congress and – God willing – our president, I think it’s going to change the entire game for the industry,” said Mueller.
