Democratic party is the party of restricting liberty -- not Republicans.
Not as far a pot goes in Texas.

And the Golden Boy, Reagan, declared a War on Drugs. While laws against marijuana were on the books before that, it was that event that demonized it to the point that a person's life could be ruined for possession.
But let's not talk about that because it blows up your entire narrative about how the Republicans wish marijuana was legal but those damn Democrat squares get off on it being illegal.

lol reeks of desperation.
what's going on?
trotting Kanye out so elaborately. and, now the this. its funny.
Obama didnt even try.
Reversing Obama era policy, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has given federal prosecutors the discretion to prosecute marijuana traffickers. That’s good news for those who believe in the rule of law. And good news, too, for those concerned about public health and the safety of our nation’s youth.
On Jan. 4, Sessions revoked the Cole Memo, a 2014 Justice Department directive issued by then-Deputy Attorney General James Cole. The memo essentially gave marijuana producers and distributors in states that had legalized the drug immunity for violating federal drug laws.
my father is dying of cancer and things that cant be talked about here are a benefit to him so if its truly legalized it could be quite the coup
Clemency for nonviolent drug offenders became big news following reality TV star Kim Kardashian West’s successful petition for the release of Alice Johnson — a 63-year-old grandmother who spent 22 years in prison for her role in a drug trafficking conspiracy. Although Kardashian West was widely mocked for meeting with President Donald Trump, Johnson went home to her family within seven days of her White House visit on May 30. Since then, some incarcerated people under similar circumstances have reason to hope that their clemency applications might also be granted by Trump.

This approach means the Dems can take credit for the move since they'll have control of the House.
Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted before his birthday on 12-31-18. If you doubt my prediction, please check my record over the last 7 months. #Winning

SPARKS, Nev. -- Donald Trump softened his tone on marijuana legalization on Thursday, saying at a political rally that states should be allowed to legalize marijuana if they chose to do so. Trump reaffirmed that he supports making medical marijuana available to patients who are very sick.
"In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state," Trump said while taking a handful of questions during a political rally at a casino outside Reno on Thursday afternoon.

I wish the creepy porn lawyer wouldn't make predictions about the creepy son of the creepy pornstar-cheating-with-and-paying-hush-money-to president.
The funny this is how the "family values" would be morality police on the Right think representing a pornstar is somehow a bad thing but cheating on your wife with one is a-okay as long as you're the cult leader.

That memo is cute, and you just explained why it was largely ineffective in how easily it can be reversed. The fact of the matter is the law needs to be reversed at the federal level.
