Jeff Sessions on Pot

March 15, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, so there’s our new Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  He’s all about trying to put Willie Nelson in jail.

And I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana – so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that’s only slightly less awful. Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs will destroy your life.

He also wants you to know that masturbation causes blindness and leaches can cure polio.

Marijuana – slightly less awful than putting your head in the blender.

Just say no worked so damn well that we need to try that again.

    THAT explains it! Sessions has been possessed by the ghost of Nancy Reagan!

    Oh, god, no! Not that tired old meme that using marijuana leads to more dangerous drug use! C’mon, Skippy! Just stop it! You are AG now. You are no longer allowed to pull your opinions out of your butt like usual.

    Here… start a trend in the conservative movement. Do some research before you speak!

    Sorry, folks. I just realized what I said above is as stupid as expecting rain on the moon.

  3. Yeah JAK, what you said was reasonable, smart and true. Just as you said, that makes your conclusion true also.

  4. He’s got objections up the ting yang to mary jane? And the White House Oval office looks and sounds like they are on meth? What a dork!

  5. How about getting rid of a drug that kills thousand every year in car crashes, shootings, and general stupid behavior: alcohol? Oh yeah, we tried that and it made things worse.

  6. I grew up in that the era in Los Angeles. where if there was even a ‘seed’ in evidence you were hauled away in handcuffs and prosecuted. Lenny Bruce was at his apex and Cheech and Chong were bravely doing very funny MJ movies.

    I dated an old high school buddy who became an undercover narc and sat through an open house keeping him company at Parker Center where I heard the spiel about how MJ was so harmful and would lead to horrors of addiction.

    We’ve come a long way and I can’t believe I am able to, here in Colorado, go into a dispensary and openly buy $50 worth of some very nice grade product. (I’m in my 70s and an old hippy.)

    The one thing I know is that MJ makes me a much nicer person and able to let a lot of things roll of my back whereas before I would go ape s***. Not only that, but oils and tinctures have helped a lot of people with pain and suppressing horrible seizures, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg and poison them.

    When will they ever learn?

    Not sure who’s suggesting legalizing pot to ‘solve’ the heroin crisis. To do THAT we need to legalize HEROIN, so we can devote society’s resources to treating it like the public health issue it is. Not that Rape-Public-Cons give a hot poop about public health, obviously.

    Legalizing pot is just about getting the government out of the business of filling ‘private’ prisons with non-violent ‘offenders’ whose only offense is putting a non-governmentally approved substance in their own bodies.

    JaneE: They will “learn” when they can find a way to personally make money off it. THEN it will be “good for you”.

    It’s just like the rest of the Republican freakouts/campaigns.

    Legislate (and punish) women’s bodies because they aren’t getting laid enough and can’t do anything about it.

    Criminalize LBGTs while they are on the down low and sneaking “sinful” sex.

    Recriminalize pot because they are making money off it one way or another.

    Exploit untouched lands, stripping them of resources to please greedy benefactors.

    There are more examples, but my brain will explode if I try to think of every one of them all at once.

  10. I don’t have a cite but I read about three studies that showed opioid addiction rates were lower in states where marijuana is legal.

    Sessions on pot would finally start to sound human. Bet all the little blacks and latinos would be his bestest buddies. Not a racist bone in a stoner’s body.

    Must be a dozen to choose from.

  13. Yeah Jeff, Nancy Reagan’s wudda been more upset than your own mom, that time when she caught you smoking a joint with one hand and jerking off with the other.

    Yep. And an absolute adoration for cookies.

    Reminds me of the old movie Reefer Madnesd: “more dangerous than heroin… because it can be grown – ANYWHERE!”

    I recall seeing it in college – that line led to cheers!

  16. I wish rec weed was legal in Minn. I’d enjoy the occasional puff or two. I still have a roach clip from about 1970 that’s aging well.
