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.

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.

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
