Attorney General Jeff Sessions, or as his buddies call him, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, has been a longtime opponent of legalization efforts. Last year, while still a Republican senator from Alabama, Sessions cemented his opposition to weed. According to him, pot is bad and it is dangerous and it is “not something to laugh about.”
Colorado, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Alaska, Maine and Massachusetts would disagree. Those states have discovered the legalization trade to be incredibly profitable.
Weed trade is booming. It has become a gold mine to many Americans. As a result, during the presidential election, Trump repeatedly promised to respect state marijuana laws. After all, despite Beauregard’s condemnation, weed doesn’t kill people, and it is so profitable to our economy. Legalizing weed seems to be common sense. Trump’s broken promises to protect legalization, were well founded. If Trump would have campaigned on ending legalization, many people would not have voted for him, because that would have been a stupid policy. Common sense along with scientific research concludes weed isn’t so bad.
After the election however, things changed. Jeff Sessions and Trump have been trying to reverse Obama’s legalization laws. In April, Jeff Sessions asked the Justice Department to look over legalization laws. He implored them to offer some changes to the state laws. Instead, according to the Associated Press, the Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety agreed with the current Justice Department’s policy, which originated under Obama.
Despite a dwindling lack of support, Attorney General Beauregard says heroin is “only slightly less awful,” than medical marijuana, Newsweek. He is going into battle against pot. However, he may never have the chance to reverse legalization, before he is sentenced on perjury charges.
According to George Papadopoulos’ unsealed plea deal him, Trump, Sessions and others attended a meeting in Washington D.C., on March 31, 2016. This seemingly innocent meeting has become the death of Trump. In this meeting, according to the plea deal, Papadopoulos announced that “he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and [Russian] President Putin.”
Considering Donald Trump, not the sharpest tool in the shed, took this picture, the meeting can not be refuted. He must have thought the meeting was so cool, that he couldn’t help himself. He proudly shared it on Twitter. He does look very stately.

Where would we be today, had Trump not taken that picture? I’m sure him and every Republican would be sleeping more soundly!
Despite this picture, Trump and Sessions continue to insist that there was no collusion between the Trump team and Russia. Of course, this refutes the picture and Papadopoulos sworn statement.
It should disgust every single American that our Attorney General, the pinnacle of justice and law, lied to our government. On the bright side, I’m sure Attorney General Jeff Sessions made Trump really proud when he went in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 13 and said,
“I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign.”
Either Jeff Sessions or Papadopoulos are lying. It would be strange for someone to lie about something that gets them in legal trouble. Papadopoulos would be doing that, if he is making this meeting up. If he is telling the truth however, Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be in a shit storm of trouble on perjury trials.
If that happens, our dealers might just keep on truckin’.
