Attorney General Jeff Sessions is currently overseeing a sweeping Justice Department crackdown on leaks, but it appears he’s been busted making his own unauthorized disclosure.

Sessions held a closed-door meeting last week about drug policy with several longtime opponents of marijuana legalization. The agenda was supposed to be kept confidential, but internet sleuths noticed a photo from the gathering that showed Sessions holding a stack of papers with a partially visible document on top that listed all of the attendees and what they planned to discuss.

Reporters were kicked out of the room before last Friday’s meeting of the anti-pot minds, but Sessions spoke to them briefly beforehand, calling marijuana legalization “a big issue for America” and reiterating his view that weed “is not a healthy substance.”

“I do believe, and I’m afraid, that the public is not properly educated on some of the issues related to marijuana,” Sessions said.


Sorry, Jeff. It isn't the American public who needs to be properly educated on issues surrounding cannabis. As much as I want to believe that the Trump admin would never go after cannabis because of the public outcry, it seems Jeff Sessions is still dead set on it. At this point, I don't think public outcry means much to this administration.

I hope I'm wrong. But it isn't looking like it.

Sessions is thoroughly corrupt. Its all about padding his pocketbook through the prison industrial complex. Hed hang his mother for a dollar. Nasty piece of work, that one, hiding behind the veil of religious piety.

Edit to add: At least thats my opinion of him. Maybe he has convinced himself hes doing good for everyone, but if so hes deceiving himself.

I just don't understand it. Every shred of evidence goes against what he believes. How can someone be so obtuse?

The part that gets me is the 4th item on the list, involving the FDA, which will probably lead to complete government control, even if cannabis is allowed to stay legal.

My other thought is that there is no surer way for republicans and Trump to get voted out than to go after marijuana. It is the only non-partisan issue in America, and has about 80 percent approval (for at least some legalization). Its also an important issue to many swing voters,

Its political suicide to crack down on it.

I just want to add, it makes me incredibly angry that the chief law enforcement officer of America is discussing ways to argue how cannabis shouldn't be used as a substitute for opiates.

With the opiate epidemic currently tearing through our country that is a ridiculously stupid position to take.

I'd be really interested in seeing who the doctors on that list work for and who they have worked for. This has big pharma written all over it.

As a side note, how dumb do you have to be to walk around with your secret agenda under your arm for the whole world to see? With the word "agenda" written at the top? Did Russia interrupt all imports of manila envelopes?

I've never worked for the government or been in any situations with any sensitive material, but even I would think to put it in a folder. Is this whole administration senile?

Sorry for the rant. I just really, really don't like Jeff Sessions.

I think that mostly China now days, fentanyl anyway. There is not much real heroin.
I'm not even sure if big pharma is using opiates anymore, or synthesizing it?

Indeed, you have to wonder why? could it just be pure ignorance?

I could only find reliable info on 3 of the 4 listed, and image searches show only one of them is present in the photo from twitter. I also can't find any information on this meeting other than vice, no one else is running it. I'm thinking this might be fake.

In attendance, according to video of the opening introductions captured by a pool photographer and posted by C-SPAN, were:

Edwin Meese III, U.S. attorney general under the Reagan administration

Kevin Sabet, president and CEO of Smart Approaches to Marijuana

Bertha Madras, a former Office of National Drug Control Policy staffer and a member of President Trump’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis

Robert DuPont, former director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse

David Evans, executive director of the Drug Free Schools Coalition

Dr. Hoover Adger, Johns Hopkins Hospital

There's a link to a video of it from C-Span on that link.

Missed the video the first time, thanks!

Who knows what went on behind closed doors there, we can be sure it was nothing pro-legalization, that's for sure, but congress is keeping Sessions from dealing with the renewed reefer madness by denying him a budget to do it. So at least we have that going for now, and honestly I think the backlash that would be caused by federal enforcement would lead to Trump replacing him.

Three minutes and 33 seconds are shared on the following video. Yes, it's about marijuana as Sessions clearly states :“I do believe, and I’m afraid, that the public is not properly educated on some of the issues related to marijuana,”

Sessions hosts a round table discussion on drug policy
