Well, it's for our own good I guess.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going after legalized marijuana. Sessions is rescinding a policy that had let legalized marijuana flourish without federal intervention across the country.

That's according to two people with direct knowledge of the decision. They were not allowed to publicly discuss it before an announcement expected Thursday and spoke on condition of anonymity.







I feel blessed to live in the land of the free where the government allows me.....................

Just kidding. I have to put up with assholes on the left and the right getting up into my bidness.

For the record, I left off the link. Most posters never click on them anyway. Wink

Sessions is a one-brain-celled old fart who lives in the past.

I gather his plan is to leave it up to the local US Attorney. Sounds like a plan cooked up by Sessions and Trump to stoke up the flames of an irrelevant matter, to divert attention away from the Russia matter and WH intrigue.

The timing is telling. They're probably worried about the Wolff book, and the revelations in it.

Sessions has always been a statist drug crusader. Any one that knows anything about him knew this was just a matter of time.

But don't worry, the government is just looking out for you. Show a little appreciation for all of their hard work.

I agree with you about Sessions. Still, the decision would be Trump's. I think he decided to pull this book off the shelf, at this time, as a diversion.

If it's left to the US Attorneys to select for themselves whether to enforce, it can't be that impactful. My hunch is that it is aimed at California, which on Jan 1st legalized recreational mj. California alone is the 6th-largest economy in the world, and it's a huge leap for the mj industry.

It will be impactful for one of your fellow citizens if an overzealous federal prosecuter decides to drag them through the legal system.

You need to post the link really. We do sort of ask posters to do that.

Here's a link, but it's the wrong link to the same story, sorta.

I can't find the original story anymore. My bad. Wink

Yes, like I said.......

I've never been interested in drugs.
Or arguments about should this drug or that drug be legal/illegal?
I don't G.A.S either way.

Yes drug taking impacts on society as a whole.
The last thread I posted in attests to that.
I just cannot work up any interest in it.

So does drinking. Do you know how many criminals were created when America did prohibition. Sometimes you need to think about how oppressive laws affect your fellow man. Wink
