AG Sessions Gears Up To Crack Down On Marijuana

Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to make himself the laughing stock of the government – and that’s saying a lot considering Donald Trump is the president. The Attorney General is now gearing up for a crackdown on marijuana, and it’s not hard to realize why he isn’t being taken seriously.

In an effort to reduce the number of “violent crimes,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions is getting ready to crack down on marijuana growers, sellers, and users, according to numerous reports. He’s going to ramp up efforts by the government and send their hired thugs to beat and imprison people for smoking and growing plants.

Back in April, Sessions asked the Task Force to come up with a Reduction and Public Safety Issue by July 2017. The fear of an even more brutal police state is now coming front and center.

The director of the Brennan Center’s Justice Program told The Hill, “Sessions and other DOJ officials have been out there over the last month and explicitly the last couple of weeks talking about how immigration and marijuana increases violent crime we’re worried there’s going to be something in the recommendations that is either saying that that’s true or recommending action be taken based on that being true.”

In the April memo, Sessions wrote, “Task Force subcommittees will also undertake a review of existing policies in the areas of charging, sentencing, and marijuana to ensure consistency with the Department’s overall strategy on reducing violent crime and with Administration goals and priorities.” He asked that these recommendations be sent to him no later than July 27, a date which is quickly approaching.

Criminal justice reform advocates fear Sessions’ memo signals stricter enforcement is ahead. That’s the logical conclusion considering Sessions’ stance on marijuana. Not exactly an advocate for freedom, Sessions has been regularly coming down on the side of totalitarianism when it comes to recreational and medical marijuana use.

“From a practitioner’s point of view, marijuana is not a drug that doesn’t have some danger to it, but it’s not the drug that’s driving violent crime in America,” said Ronal Serpas, the former superintendent of the New Orleans Police Department and co-chairman of Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime and Incarceration. “That’s not the drug with which we see so much death and destruction on the streets of America. Crack and powdered cocaine, heroin and opioids is where we’re seeing people die on street corners fighting over territory or control.”

President Trump said during his campaign he wouldn’t interfere with state’s rights when it comes to marijuana. However, the president has had a complicated history regarding his stance on several issues, and this one is rather muddied.

“In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state,” Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post. “… Marijuana is such a big thing. I think medical should happen — right? Don’t we agree? I think so. And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states.” But, Trump also called Colorado’s legal marijuana industry a “real problem.”

Looks like the government is intent upon harassing otherwise peaceful people for doing nothing more than owning a plant. So much for that all that freedom we are constantly told we have so much of…

    “In an effort to reduce the number of “violent crimes,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions is getting ready to crack down on marijuana growers, sellers, and users, according to numerous reports.” Ol’ Jeff must be high if he thinks his “crackdown” will have any effect on violent crime. What a fuckin’ moron…

    Trump needs to get rid of this monkey with no balls. We need to reduce the number of idiots in Washington.

    What happened Jeff. Have you been `instructed` like so many before you to divert our attention away to the trivial once again?

    • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

      Exactly!

  • Radioman63

    It’s all B.S., if they were serious about shutting down the drug business they would go after the money launderers (read bankers) and these guys are not going to give up billions of dollars of business very easily!

    • NoMeansNo

      And they could cut the BushCrimeFamily and the ClintonCrimeFamily drug dealing empires off at the knees.

  • straight shooter

    I’m pretty sure Sessions is headed out the door and I’ve never gotten the sense that Trump himself is so vehemently anti-cannabis. Since there are so few AG candidates as moronic as Sessions, we’d have a decent chance of this idiotic agenda following Sessions out the window as well.

    Meanwhile, almost time for my cannabis/flaxmilk shake. Mmm mmm good…

    • roger

      sounds absolutely yummy;)

    • patriot156

      Yeah but the next in line the other puke in Glasses is even more against states rights than Sessions.

      • NoMeansNo

        They’re all compromised in one way or another. ‘Out’ every one of the creepazoids until someone can get into the position that is halfway decent. If that person exists, that is.

    He’s from the 1950’s school of thought regarding marijuana…Also, he supports strict civil forfeiture…i.e. elimination of due process….

    • NoMeansNo

      Jeff ‘Reefer Madness’ Sessions.

      • R. Shultz

        Yep..Good one..Old school thinking…
        Also, very dangerous on civil forfeiture..lack of due process.

  • endofwatchersbegan1/28/2011

    Sessions STUPIDITY has become too obvious. At every turn he appears to be doing whatever he wants without consulting the PRESIDENT. Marijuana, Asset Forfeiture, Cowardly RECUSALS which have hurt Trump. Trump agrees with NONE of it. I liked Sessions a great deal. Now I despise the stupid SOB. Appears that the CORRUPT Police Union Lobby has more consideration from Sessions than does the President. Time for Trump to REMOVE this FAKE stooge from his Cabinet. Sad.

    Once a narcissist, a psychopath, or an idolater, gets an idea in his head, it won’t go away, ever, ever. So Sessions has this idea in his head that the way to abate the drug problem in the US is to wage war on it, even though the ‘War on Drugs’ has proven itself to be a totally worthless exercise in futility. Worse than worthless actually because it has harmed so many non-violent people, many of whom are decent and hard working people.

    Portugal did it the right way and Sessions has no doubt heard about it, but he is unable to recant because he is too proud to admit that he has made a serious and nefarious misjudgment, and the reason he is too proud to admit it is because he is either a narcissist, a psychopath, or an idolater (or all three).

    He claims to be a Christian yet he ignores Jesus’ statement that nothing outside of a man going into him can defile him (he said it in reply to the Pharisees who were dissing him and his disciples because they picked some ears of corn off the plants and ate them without washing their hands). (The verse is Mark 7:15). In this statement by Jesus the word ‘nothing’ covers a wide range of substances (and Sessions should know this but he is turning a blind eye to it).

    So Sessions, by these four examples (i.e. his pride, his making the claim that he is a follower of Christ, his continuation of the ‘War on Drugs,’ and his willful ignorance regarding the above statement by Jesus), prove him to be a blatant hypocrite. it’s just like Hannah Arendt said:

    “Only crime and the criminal it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.”

    (From her book titled ‘The Origins of Totalitarianism’).

  • Jeri Brace

    many don’t realize that It is Big Pharma &the Alcohol Industry that is funding Sessions War on Drugs 2, the sequel. Congress refuses to give Sessions a dime.

    If people would lay off the Alcohol, Sessions would have less in his War Purse indeed.

  • patriot156

    yeah not voting Trump again!

  • patriot156

    People don’t see it but the Police state and totalitarianism are still alive and well and most are still singing Trumps praises. He supports Erdogan, the fuck in Phillipines the bastard in Syria and Putin all dictators Go figure.

  • NoMeansNo

    I’m sure this little Creep has a skeleton or two in his closet that can be ‘outed’ so we can get rid of this Clown. Nobody gets that high up in the government unless they are compromised in some way by the Powers that Be.

    Seems obvious that the independent growers are ‘Cutting into the PROFITS’ of the ‘Government’s distribution’ of MJ.
    The “CIA” -Deep State appears to OWN Sessions as well as MOST of the other SWAMP Creatures.poorly disguised as ‘politicians’.

  • “…Because Yahweh’s law does not altogether prohibit alcohol or drugs, the answer is not to make them illegal as the Eighteenth Amendment (and church edict) did. Just as Amendment 18 was inept at controlling alcoholic consumption, so are current drug regulations. Responsible use should be promoted by punishing only those who cause harm to another person or his property. For example, instead of attempting to curb drunk driving by prohibiting excessive alcohol consumption, any drunk driver convicted of causing or contributing to the death of an innocent person should be put to death or forced to pay whatever the next of kin requires as ransom for his life. If the injured or disabled party does not die, the convicted felon (instead of an insurance company) should be compelled to pay for medical expenses and financial compensation for lost wages during convalescence. This compensation should be in addition to an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, or the required ransom. If the perpetrator cannot pay the required compensation, he is to be indentured until his debt is paid.12 Lex talionis not only promotes personal responsibility, it eliminates the need for the insurance industry.

    “Man’s efforts to control alcohol and drug abusers have been wholly ineffective. When Yahweh’s law is enforced and convicted murderers are put to death, society never suffers from repeat offenders after someone is killed as the result of drunken carelessness. If someone is killed, injured, or disabled as the consequence of another person’s irresponsible use of drugs, the punishment should correspond to the death, injury, or damage to the victim and their property. Today’s ineffective drug and alcohol laws have, in many instances, made criminals out of people who have hurt no one but themselves. This has forced innocent taxpayers to pay for the housing, feeding, and entertaining of people who should never have been imprisoned.13

    “Yahweh’s law makes people personally responsible for their actions, and His judgments substantially reduce both premeditated crime and careless disregard for the lives and property of others. A downsized and smaller government is an additional benefit of lex talionis. Federal agencies such as OSHA, the FDA, and the FAA are superfluous under Biblical law. The oversight of a speedy trials and the administration of the proper judgments are the only government intervention required in liability cases….”

    Not only double minded but working against the health of people who need not only these thc natural products but even CBD oil which has many tens of thousands of research studies behind it that actually helps people and allows then to replace man made synthetic drugs which are harmful with a substance Jesus created which is beneficial to every person alive. If the government people loved and honored Jesus/God as our Colonial brothers once did – this would not be going on.

    Sessions is the one appointment by Trump that I fully disagree with.
    While having corrected my lawful/legal status, manure like this still concerns me.
    I’ll take Yahweh’s Torah over this Satanic mess any day, in the name of Yeshua.
