Video: When Jeff Sessions Cracks Down on Weed, He'll Blame Congress
Attorney General nominee doesn't make laws, is just itching to enforce them.
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for Attorney General, has been hunkered down in front of a few rows of his fellow United States Senators for much of today, justifying his qualifications for the position of Attorney General of the United States.
Eventually, after much fielding of easily swatted inquires from the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions got around to giving a veiled hint of what his plans are toward the enforcement of federal laws that regard marijuana as a Schedule 1 narcotic, and not a recreational substance legal in eight states and a medical treatment regulated in more than half the country.
To summarize: If Congress doesn't want a Jeff Sessions Drug Enforcement Administration to rain unholy heck upon marijuana dispensaries in Blue States all across this country, then Jeff Sessions suggests Congress should hurry and make weed legal.
The selection of Sessions to head the Justice Department was met with anxiety, pessimism, and outright fatalistic gloom far and wide across KINDLAND. The Senator's half a minute of blame deflection above does nothing to relieve any of those discouraging words.
