“The United States Congress has made the possession of marijuana in every state, and distribution of it, an illegal act,” Sen. Sessions testified. “If that’s something is not desired any longer, Congress should pass a law to change the rule.”
Was it a joke? Seems in bad taste nonetheless. Source
Figures claimed that Sessions once said that he used to think that the Ku Klux Klan was okay until he found out that they smoked marijuana, according to The New York Times. Sessions responded to this accusation by saying that he hates the KKK and that the marijuana comment was just a joke.

Wasn't he against maryjane? He must have seen the dollar signs by making it federally legal. I fall on Trumps side of this and leave it up to the individual states.
During a Senate hearing in 2016, Sen. Sessions said, “Good people don’t smoke marijuana.” In the 1980s, as an Alabama U.S. Attorney Sessions said, he thought the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) “were OK until I found out they smoked pot.”

And therefore the Federal Authorities need to repeal their draconian laws so that the individual states can pass their own restrictions.

Rather surprising..I wonder if the DEA will butt heads with him over it?
Alot of money involved so..it will be about money.

I don't believe that Sessions is advocating for Congress to legalize cannabis. I think he's passing the buck and setting the blame stage for when he, if confirmed, starts a cannabis war with the states.
