  1. During a Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control hearing Tuesday about how the Department of Justice is monitoring the effects of marijuana legalization in states like Colorado and Washington, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) bemoaned that years of work “trying to send that message with clarity that good people don’t smoke marijuana” hasn’t resonated.
    Sessions has a history of being virulently anti-cannabis. After President Obama said pot is less dangerous than alcohol in a 2014 interview, Sessions cited a one-person sample to make the case Obama was wrong.
    “Well, Lady Gaga said she is addicted to it and it is not harmless. She’s been been addicted to it,” Sessions said during a hearing. “I just think it’s a huge issue. I hope that you will talk with the president, you’re close with him, and begin to push back, or pull back, on this position that I think is going to be adverse to the health of America.”
    Tuesday’s hearing, called by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), was criticized by marijuana reform advocates for serving as little more than a forum for the two oldest members of the Senate and those who think like them to reiterate their anti-marijuana views. For instance, despite federal data indicating that legalization hasn’t led to a significant increase in marijuana use among youth in affected states, Feinstein said cannabis use has “escalated dramatically in the states that have legalized marijuana.” Her claim wasn’t challenged.

  2. Senators appear to have a shelf life...
    I think we should start euthanizing them at a certain mental capacity for their own benefit... And ours...

  6. All of you have a choice to vote out the old farts. If the young generation ever really got out and voted then weed would have been legal a decade ago, no two decades ago.

  8. The quasi legalization being implemented in some US states right now is clearly just a ploy to enable the wealthy to make even more cash and increasing their incentive to bust the little guy for growing some personal and a little for his friends.

  10. Weed should be sold at the farmer's market tax free as the vegetable it is.
