Chief Narc Jeff Sessions To Lock YOU Up, For Doing Jazz And Reefer
Kiww da buu-uuzz, kiww da buu-uuzz...
Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III ( vomit! ) is on track to make himself even more hated by good decent American folks by doing away with Barack Obama's policy that allowed states to regulate the sale and use of marijuana with minimal federal interference. Sessions's new policy will leave decisions on marijuana enforcement up to US attorneys' offices, which of course will all be staffed with Trump appointees. We guess Sessions drew the short straw for Distract Everybody From Bannon News today.
The move -- which Sessions has been telegraphing for months -- comes just days after the sale of recreational weed became legal in California, where legal pot shops started opening Monday. And in states that have legalized pot sales, cannabis taxes have been a huge source of new revenue. Purely coincidental, we're sure.
During the campaign, Donald Trump had said that the question of legal weed should be up to states to decide, as he said in this clip from an interview with a Colorado Teevee station:
Trump says in this video that he’d never let his pick for Attorney General ban recreational marijuana, says it should be up to the states. Maybe he should tell Jeff Sessions this. pic.twitter.com/2ApgycbVzu
