Jeff Sessions Confirms He’s Going After States with Legalized Marijuana, Claims it Causes “Violence”

While Trump may claim he’s for states rights, Attorney General Jeff Sessions just pissed on the opinions of about 71% of Americans who do not believe the federal government should attempt to ram federal laws down the throats of states where voters have legalized marijuana.

After Press Secretary Sean Spicer essentially warned everyone last week that the Trump administration plans to crack down on states with recreational marijuana laws, AG Sessions backed that up on Monday with some bizarre statements that prove the guy actually believes Refer Madness was a documentary.

Via Politico:

“Most of you probably know I don’t think America is going to be a better place when more people of all ages and particularly young people start smoking pot,” Sessions said during an exchange with reporters at the Justice Department. “I believe it’s an unhealthy practice and current levels of THC in marijuana are very high compared to what they were a few years ago.”

“We’re seeing real violence around that,” Sessions said. “Experts are telling me there’s more violence around marijuana than one would think and there’s big money involved.”

Nothing he said was backed up by any facts. While the country has changed and the science has changed, Sessions proved he has not changed his views on marijuana in over 30 years.

Not only does opioid addiction go down in states that legalize as has been verified by statistics, but if there is any “violence” around marijuana, it’s due entirely to the black market created by the phony drug war, not the actual drug itself, as pointed out by chairman of the drug policy reform group Marijuana Majority Tom Angell:

“By talking about marijuana and violence, the attorney general is inadvertently articulating the strongest argument that exists for legalization, which is that it allows regulated markets in a way that prohibition does not.”

Prohibition keeps drug cartels in business and needlessly puts thousands of Americans behind bars.

But then again, that must be why Sessions also reversed the DOJ plan to phase out the for-profit prisons last week; they’re going to need somewhere to put all those non-violent drug offenders once the federal crackdown on a benign plant legalized in over half the country begins.

  1. Jonathan Brooks says:

    Potlegalization is crippling the Cartels, so Sessions decides that dealing with Hillary Obama and other corrupt actors is too hard, and he is going to attack States that legalize pot.

  2. Gregory Alan of Johnson says:

    This is why I wasn’t impressed with the choice/appointment of Sessions.

  3. Just more unnecessary government control and abuse:

    “…In similar fashion, lex talionis [an eye for eye, tooth for tooth, life for life, etc.] should be applied to those who abuse alcohol and drugs and thereby injure or kill others….

    “Because Yahweh’s law does not altogether prohibit alcohol or drugs, the answer is not to make them illegal as the Eighteenth Amendment (and church edict) did. Just as
    Amendment 18 was inept at controlling alcoholic consumption, so are current drug regulations. Responsible use should be promoted by punishing only those who cause harm to another person or his property. For example, instead of attempting to curb drunk driving by prohibiting excessive alcohol consumption, any drunk driver convicted of causing or contributing to the death of an innocent person should be put to death or forced to pay whatever the next of kin requires as ransom for his life. If the injured or disabled party does not die, the convicted felon instead of an insurance company) should be compelled to pay for medical expenses and financial compensation for lost wages during convalescence. This compensation should be in addition to an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, or the required ransom. If the perpetrator cannot pay the required compensation, he is to be indentured until his
    debt is paid.12 Lex talionis not only promotes personal responsibility, it eliminates the need for the insurance industry.

    “Man’s efforts to control alcohol and drug abusers have been wholly ineffective. When Yahweh’s law is enforced and convicted murderers are put to death, society never suffers from repeat offenders after someone is killed as the result of drunken
    carelessness. If someone is killed, injured, or disabled as the consequence of another person’s irresponsible use of drugs, the punishment should correspond to the death, injury, or damage to the victim and their property. Today’s ineffective drug and alcohol laws have, in many instances, made criminals out of people who have hurt no one but themselves. This has forced innocent taxpayers to pay for the
    housing, feeding, and entertaining of people who should never have been imprisoned.13

    “Yahweh’s law makes people personally responsible for their actions, and His judgments substantially reduce both premeditated crime and careless disregard for the lives and property of others. A downsized and smaller government is an additional benefit of lex talionis. Federal agencies such as OSHA, the FDA, and the FAA are superfluous under Biblical law….”

    Fact:

    Alcohol IS a major element in police 911, domestic violence calls..

    Marijuana is NOT statistically, associated with 911, domestic violence, police calls.

    Fact:

    When alcohol was illegal, there was considerable violence, associated with it’s distribution.

    When alcohol was legalized, violence associated with it’s distribution ended.

    Fact:

    The,..’violence’,..associated with marijuana is associated with it’s,..DISTRIBUTION.

    Marijuana ,..USAGE,.. has NO statistical connection to violence.

    Conclusion:

    To legalize Marijuana would ELIMINATE the violence associated with the criminal activity that is, NOW, associated with it’s distribution.

  13. Jason Brown says:

    Waste of time and money. And marijuana does not cause violence, actually causes the opposite. The only danger with a person smoking weed, is to a bag of Doritos.
