With the start of the new year, California has legalized pot. It is now legal to grow, buy, or use marijuana in the super liberal state. I guess the leftist governor, Jerry Brown, was more concerned with getting high than protecting his citizens from criminal aliens. However, before Californians light up that spliff, they might want to learn what Attorney General Jeff Sessions is doing. It’ll end your enjoyment pretty quickly.
More and more states are legalizing marijuana. It is a disturbing trend. Legalizing “vice” is a popular tactic in Europe. Governments think that by legalizing things like drug use and prostitution, they can better control it. The assumption is people are doing it anyway, so why not make it legal? That always works out!
Instead, legalizing vice only leads to greater problems. Just ask Colorado, which has been suffering ever since they legalized pot. There has been a sharp increase in marijuana-related traffic deaths, poison control calls, and emergency room visit, according to USA Today. It has also only increased the black market. But, hey, they increased tax revenue by 1.18%.
To be clear, there is a big difference between medical marijuana use and recreational use. Considering the serious drug epidemic in America, legalizing recreational drug use is shockingly irresponsible. California and other states are doing it simply to pander to a small group of citizens. They are not thinking about the long-term consequences. Hmm, liberals not thinking about the future? Sadly, that sounds about right.
Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing in on the issue. Reports have come out that say he has overturned the long-standing policy that prevented the federal government from intervention. It looks like the DOJ is about to go hard on drug users across the country. Better hide that bong, buddy!
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going after legalized marijuana. Sessions is rescinding a policy that had let legalized marijuana flourish without federal intervention across the country.
That’s according to two people with direct knowledge of the decision. They were not allowed to publicly discuss it before an announcement expected Thursday and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The move will leave it to U.S. attorneys where pot is legal to decide whether to aggressively enforce federal marijuana law. The move likely will add to confusion about whether it’s OK to grow, buy or use marijuana in states where it’s legal, since long-standing federal law prohibits it.
The decision comes days after California began selling recreational marijuana.

You need to understand one thing: California’s legalization of pot is a direct attack on President Donald Trump’s agenda. Much like their recent sanctuary status, Governor Jerry Brown is doing everything he can to oppose the administration.
President Trump announced one of the goals of his White House is to end the drug addiction crisis. Millions of Americans suffer due to drug abuse. It is at epidemic levels.
DRUG ADDICTION AND OPIOIDS ARE RAVAGING AMERICA: Hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost their lives to drug abuse, and it will only get worse unless action is taken.
In 2016, more than two million Americans had an addiction to prescription or illicit opioids.
Since 2000, over 300,000 Americans have died from overdoses involving opioids.

At a time when so many families are suffering from drug abuse, Jerry Brown legalizes marijuana. How sensitive of him! You’d think a party that pretends to care about regular people wouldn’t put a loaded gun into their hands. Liberals claim they want to help the poor and working classes, but legalizing a drug that so many of them abuse will only deepen their problems.
But, who cares, right? At least Governor Brown got to stick it to Trump again!
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is getting ready to bring the pain to California. With the rescinding of that policy, federal agents will go hard against anyone violating drug laws. States can pass all the laws they want; that won’t stop the feds from busting in their doors.
Make no mistake: liberals will continue to defy the president. They will continue to push policies that are destructive. It doesn’t matter how many American lives are lost in the process. We will only be free of their terrible leadership, once every last one of them is voted out of office. Until then, hacks like California’s Jerry Brown will seek to drive us into the ground.
