In usual egomaniac fashion the Republicans are drunk with lust to act on all their pet paranoias and hatred. They will be reeking vengeance for many slights real and imagined.
They even want to take on the legal Marijuana industry and a citizen’s right to buy legal cannabis.
Now that will be interesting to watch. Perhaps the Democrats could take some notes, because that one is going to be evangelical thug against street thug, too much money and power and guns and expectation stands behind that legal pot shit anymore, the happy hippies are gone. The big boys are doing it now, and, and here’s that crucial and, the public loves it. And where it’s happening sounds like the cops are pleasantly surprised at outcomes. Of Republicans would have to step into the world of objective demonstrable facts to recognize that.
In a sick way the thought makes me smile, finally an opponent with genuine cohones, as opposed to the usual DNC White Bread. Gonna see them bleed if they go after that one. I got no pony in that race, just saying.
Anyone else see a civil war brewing out there?
Jeff Sessions’ Coming War on Legal Marijuana There’s little to stop the attorney general nominee from ignoring the will of millions of pro-pot voters. By JAMES HIGDON December 05, 2016 http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/12/jeff-sessions-coming-war-on-legal-marijuana-214501 On Election Day, eight states voted to legalize recreational or medical marijuana, bringing the nationwide total of medical states to 29. In Florida, medical marijuana won nearly 2 million more votes than Donald Trump. Added up, 65 million people now live in states that authorize adult recreational use; more than half of all Americans have access to medical marijuana; and almost everyone else lives in a state that permits CBD, a non-psychoactive component of cannabis that helps treatment of juvenile epilepsy. It’s easier now to identify the six states that have done nothing to end the prohibition on marijuana than the ones that are breaking away from the federal law that treats marijuana the same as heroin. There was another winner on November 8, however, and he has thrown up a serious challenge to the seemingly inexorable march of legal marijuana. By nominating Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III for attorney general, President-elect Donald J. Trump is about to put into the nation’s top law enforcement job a man with a long and antagonistic attitude toward marijuana. As a U.S. Attorney in Alabama in the 1980s, Sessions said he thought the KKK "were OK until I found out they smoked pot." In April, Sessions 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." ...
