CANNABIS CULTURE – Everyone wants to know how The Trump Administration (still hard to write that without getting shivers) is going to deal with marijuana and the states that have legalized.
This might be a hint: the guy he nominated for attorney general has said he thought the KKK “were OK until I found out they smoked pot.”
More marijuana hits from Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III:
In April, he said, “Good people don’t smoke marijuana,” and that it was a “very real danger” that is “not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized.” Sessions, who turns 70 on Christmas Eve, has called marijuana reform a “tragic mistake” and criticized FBI Director James Comey and Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for not vigorously enforcing a the federal prohibition that President Obama has called “untenable over the long term.” In a floor speech earlier this year, Senator Sessions said: “You can’t have the President of the United States of America talking about marijuana like it is no different than taking a drink… It is different….It is already causing a disturbance in the states that have made it legal.”

Another hint about Trumps position on the Drug War: President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines says Donald Trump endorses his violent anti-drug campaign.
Duterte told the press Trump said it was “the right way.”
