Trump’s pick for attorney general plans to make marijuana illegal again

President-elect Donald Trump plans to nominate Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to be attorney general of the United States, The Washington Post and other news outlets reported Friday. Sessions is a vocal opponent of marijuana legalization whose elevation to attorney general could deal a blow to state-level marijuana legalization efforts across the country.

At a Senate drug hearing in April, Sessions said that “we need grown-ups in charge in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized, it ought not to be minimized, that it’s in fact a very real danger.” He voiced concern over statistics showing more drivers were testing positive for THC, the active component in marijuana, in certain states.

MJ is already federally illegal. Trump won't touch state laws. I hope people stop getting their news from the Facebook and actually do some research before reporting opinions as "news."

I've seen an interview with him and he is most likely going to fall in line with Trump's leaving States laws alone! They are not supposed to be all about stomping on states laws but we shall see what happens

Never made one stupid decision smoking pot. How many bad decisions have you made on alcohol? I got a 30 on my ACT, 4 questions shy of a perfect score on my SAT, master electrician yadda yadda yadda. All on weed, your small mind cannot handle it I'm sure. Enjoy your Zima, and produce some facts next time you want to vomit out of your mouth

All you who support this are the bad people! Besides the minor fender benders, what else is so bad about a natural cure? You will let deadly pharmaceutical drugs pass? You are the problem in America. Maybe you are just upset because the millions of dollars that's going to schools should be going to law informant agencies and prisons! Stupid people! Wake up! \U0001f621

I'm sure they mean his Attorney General is a strong opposer of marijuana. What he will do is to come.

What do you mean Trump will make marijuana illegal again. It is STILL illegal according to the federal government .

I guess that means we don't have to pay taxes too there Dave! If you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem!

Federal level, still illegal. Obama just didn't enforce Federal Law on the issue. There are consequences to how you vote.

Good people shouldn't drink alcohol either, but a true fact is the 99% probably drink it, so does that mean there's no good people left?

It won't matter anyway. You simply cannot enforce a law that the people don't want.
