Sessions attacked legal pot. Colorado’s State Senators just smoked him with epic response

Sessions attacked legal pot. Colorado’s State Senators just smoked him with epic response

This morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions put his grossly misaligned priorities on full display by announcing that he would roll back an Obama-era policy of non-interference with regard to individual states’ lax marijuana laws.

Whereas the Department of Justice had previously followed a hands-off approach, federal prosecutors will now be able to crack down on marijuana possession, cultivation and sales in states like Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, Alaska, and, now, California.

The “Colorado Senate Dems” Twitter account took the opportunity to not only school Trump’s AG with a slew of knowledge, but roast him with perhaps the funniest tweet of the day.

With over $617 million in tax revenue from marijuana sales that have funded schools and addiction treatment programs in Colorado, Sessions’ move is not only misguided but wholly counterproductive.

Furthermore, between 2016 to 2017, over 130,000 Americans have died in the ongoing opioid crisis. Trump, for his part, has called the crisis a “health emergency,” falling short of declaring a “national emergency,” for which the government would allocate federal resources to fight it.

Despite what this administration may say, their actions speak volumes. This is not common-sense legislating, nor legislating on behalf of any mandate—this White House has instead launched a full-scale attack on American citizens and the country they want to live in.

Midterms are fast approaching. Even the potheads won’t forget to vote.
