Sesions is back at it again, and this time he is citing an irrefutable expert on cannabis. Sessions has made other hilariously misinformed statements on cannabis. Here are some other quotes:
“Good people don’t smoke marijuana.”
“I thought those guys [the Ku Klux Klan] were OK until I learned they smoked pot.”
"Marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized... Families will be broken up. Children will be damaged because of the difficulties their parents have, and people may be psychologically impacted the rest of their lives with marijuana.”
"I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana – so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that’s only slightly less awful.”
“When they nominated me for attorney general, you would have thought the biggest issue in America was when I said, ‘I don’t think America’s going to be a better place if they sell marijuana....’ (People) didn’t like that; I’m surprised they didn’t like that.”
Interestingly enough, 94 percent of Americans support medical access to cannabis when directed by a physician (including 96 percent of Democrats and 90 percent of Republicans). A poll found 73 percent of respondents oppose enforcing federal cannabis laws against state laws.
Attorney General's office;
“We are looking at the states that have decriminalized marijuana, I think there is some pretty significant evidence that marijuana turns out to be more harmful than a lot of people anticipated we need to take that into consideration and then make a determination whether or not to revise policies.”
A task force created by a February executive order and comprised of prosecutors and other law enforcement officials was supposed to study marijuana enforcement, along with many other policy areas, and issue recommendations.
The group’s recommendations were due in July, but the Justice Department has not made public what the task force determined was appropriate for marijuana.
