This is why I can't stand government

I see absolutely no reason for this except that it will enable government to pick winners and losers in the legal marijuana industry. This type of muddled, arbitrary, non-policy that expressly violates the will of the people makes me sick to my stomach.

Sessions doesn't want ANY "winners" in the legal marijuana industry.  He wants the winners to be the private prison industry, and he's got a lot of friends that agree.



Sessions has "reefer madness" burned into his brain, but unironically.  That and he knows black folks like it, so anything to make their lives miserable is A-OK in his book.

Strangely, the other day we had this story:

I don't think it'll work out that way but the sentiment is nice.


I don't know if there is merely coincidence in the timing or something else.  Usually, in the past it has seemed like whenever we try to adjust our drug laws the ambassador is on the phone pretty quick hoping that "the USs allies can be relied upon to show moral support for its policies" and so forth.


Maybe we're being thrown a bone in the name of some domestic unity.  Who knows.



I did find it weird hearing about how growers in Colorado would set up these big operations of perfectly legal trade and periodically the feds would roll through and tear the whole thing down.  I guess Obama told them to turn a blind eye for a few years there.  But all the same I'm impressed people even bother with that sword hanging over them.

AThe point is that it threatens to make convicts out of a lot of people that Sessions doesn't want voting. That's all the War on Drugs ever was.
