That's a valid position to have. In which case you should be upset that they are going out of their way and wasting their time going after MJ instead of working on those other issues.

Nobody is looking into solving those issues when they're occupied with coming up with ways to start making MJ users into crinimals.

They will in effect be killing jobs and spending money on destroying something that was actually creating jobs and making money. Just the opposite of what you want to happen.

I'd say that makes this a priority. After all, what other new industry can you think of that has made such record profits and created so many new jobs other than Legalized MJ???

What has to be understood is that Trump will do many distasteful things just because he’s a republican, such as on this issue.


As he is going along with the GOP on Obamacare, the environment, free choice and many issues out of loyalty to the dogma of the Republican Party.

Agreed, state rights will still be okay.

Now if the Trump administration takes away the 10th Amendment, then I think we'll have bigger things to worry about than the weed.

Even Trump says he regrets Sessions, why side with Sessions if your guy doesn't like him? LOL

Anyway not sure if aware but you know there's plenty of people who use medical marijuana for disabilities as it helps them work- at home for example where they are not tested or where jobs are more lax on tests. That's not to discount, as already mentioned, the jobs that were created by the industry(and many more coming to newly legal recreational states), in areas where unemployment is a large issue.

Amending the constitution requires, no pun intended, an act of congress lol. But really. Not something one president can accomplish on his own with a pen.

Kind of off topic. I wonder what the rates of incarceration are like for the states that have legalized already. Maybe the for-profit prison corporations are starting to feel the pain? Someone has to be losing a lot of money somewhere to take this chance. I wish I knew where so I could laugh at them.

Once again, just like the MSM, if they continue to fight this it will be the worse thing they could do. Seems like they are going for broke.

Well, I guess for people like me that think states rights will be the answer, this will just bring in more supporters.

Yeah.

So states like Oregon and others really have nothing to worry about.

At the end of the day States that have legalized it will going on, many other States will legalized it and in the near future it will be taken off the schedule 1 list...

Another I hate Trump posting, but then 8 years under Obama and nothing. Even towards the end of his 8 years we got this..


The Obama administration has denied a bid by two Democratic governors to reconsider how it treats marijuana under federal drug control laws, keeping the drug for now, at least, in the most restrictive category for U.S. law enforcement purposes.


I really do not want to do the "what did Obama do" but come on people....

Do you have any sources for plans of that?

Yeah, because I create that everyday. SMH It's more than Trump, in fact as I pointed out, guess not all of you seen, even Trump regrets having Sessions around.

Under Obama states started to legalize. Obama didn't care to support it but left it alone. Trump he wants to turn around everything Obama has done.

I am.

Sessions has got to go!

All I am trying to say, is we have much more important issues to put on the front burners to save our Republic?


When I look at my life and the way things are going, being able to have enough money to buy food, have a roof over my head means a whole hell of a lot more to me than whether or not something is legal or illegal. Much more important issues need to be addressed.

If they get their way, there's going to be a whole lot of revolt going on. My state has a penchant for giving draconic legislation the finger.

Which oddly has droves of Libertarian(Conservative leaning side) laying down their once anti support of people like Sessions to rally for him.

I'd rather be concerned with what's currently happening and solutions for it than wishing something had been done in the past.

At the moment it seems the Trump admin care more about unraveling everything Obama did than what the people actually want. That needs to be said as well.

Wait Obama did nothing, so what is Trump turning around again? States are still protected, so vote the sh@t legal in your state...elect the people you want to represent you views....

Don't do the chicken little dance every time Trumps farts...lol

That last statement is to all not just you Dream....

Exactly, but then again,
"How Much of Big Pharma's Massive Profits Are Used to Influence Politicians?"


Big Pharma tends to spend more on Republicans than Democrats, and the GOP benefited from 58 percent of the industry's federal contributions in 2012 and 2014 while Democrats received 42 percent, according to the CRP.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's a group of 18 House Democrats, not Republicans, who are demanding that the CEO of Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Michael Pearson, join Shkreli in front of the House Oversight Committee during the first week of October to answer questions about recent price hikes on two drugs produced by his company.

Sessions sees no difference in marijuana vs heroin.

Plus Marijuana is upsetting Big Pharma.

Marijuana is too dangerous. It causes hallucinations. Men will be far more likely to commit murder, kidnapping, rape. I agree. Say no to marijuana. If you want to get high, drink coca cola. But marijuana is a big no no in my books.

I understand what you're saying and I agree. There are far more important things to work on. Which is why we need to stop them from working on this.

There is no reason for them to boost up MJ criminalization efforts and wasting resources on it within the DOJ. Allowing them to do this will stop them from working on other more important issues.

Allowing them to continue on this path is a total waste of time and resources. Before we can address things of more importance we need to first stop them from wasting their time in other areas. Allowing them to continue in this direction IS diverting attention away from more important things. We'll never address those priorities if we allow them to go down this road.
