Jeff Sessions personally asked Congress to let him prosecute medical-marijuana providers

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking congressional leaders to undo federal medical-marijuana protections that have been in place since 2014, according to a May letter that became public Monday.

The protections, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, prohibit the Justice Department from using federal funds to prevent certain states "from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana."

In his letter, first obtained by Tom Angell of Massroots.com and verified independently by The Washington Post, Sessions argued that the amendment would "inhibit [the Justice Department's] authority to enforce the Controlled Substances Act." He continues:

    I believe it would be unwise for Congress to restrict the discretion of the Department to fund particular prosecutions, particularly in the midst of an historic drug epidemic and potentially long-term uptick in violent crime. The Department must be in a position to use all laws available to combat the transnational drug organizations and dangerous drug traffickers who threaten American lives.


Sessions's citing of a "historic drug epidemic" to justify a crackdown on medical marijuana is at odds with what researchers know about current drug use and abuse in the United States. The epidemic Sessions refers to involves deadly opiate drugs, not marijuana. A growing body of research (acknowledged by the National Institute on Drug Abuse) has shown that opiate deaths and overdoses actually decrease in states with medical marijuana laws on the books.

Letter: Sessions Declares War on Medical Marijuana States

Excerpt from article

Quote
As noted by MassRoots, President Trump during the 2016 election campaign vowed to favor states rights when it came to marijuana, at one time saying he supported medical marijuana “100 percent.”

In 1990, Trump was also quoted as labeling the federal government’s war on drugs “a joke.”

“We’re losing badly the war on drugs,” Trump said, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. “You have to legalize drugs to win that war. You have to take the profit away from these drug czars.”


Sessions, however, has maintained an anti-marijuana stance, telling reporters in February, “I’m definitely not a fan of expanded use of marijuana.”

“States they can pass the laws they choose. I would just say it does remain a violation of federal law to distribute marijuana throughout any place in the United States, whether a state legalizes it or not,” Sessions said.

Letter: Sessions Declares War on Medical Marijuana States

Excerpt from article
"But Trump is pro-America!"  Oh and btw it's too late for Alex Jones to start posting any truth now--sorry scumbag (Alex) you had lined up behind Trump from the get-go, lock stock and barrel.  And now Alex and his devoted listeners are getting bitchslapped in the face by reality that they supported.

As opioid epidemic  becomes a national crisis, Jeff Sessions wants to ensure that marijuana or hemp is not a viable alternative to big pharma.   

I wonder if Alex will address the ramping up of the drug war by Sessions on his broadcast.  Indeed,  I am surprised that Infowars actually wrote an article about this.

Oh, well sorry Jeff, but not. That federal law is unlawful, as in not constitutional...

Jeff Sessions’ Marijuana Adviser Wants Doctors to Drug-Test Everyone

https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeff-sessions-marijuana-adviser-wants-doctors-to-drug-test-everyone?ref=home




'An adviser on marijuana policy to Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to see doctors make drug testing a routine part of primary-care medicine and force some users into treatment against their will, he told The Daily Beast.

Dr. Robert DuPont was among a small group of drug-policy experts invited to a closed-door meeting with Sessions last month to discuss federal options for dealing with the rapid liberalization of state marijuana laws. California became the sixth state to allow the sale of marijuana for recreational use on Jan. 1.

DuPont, 81, is one of the most influential drug warriors of the past century. He began his career as a liberal on drug control in the 1970s, calling then for the decriminalization of marijuana possession and launching the first U.S. methadone treatment program for heroin in Washington, D.C. in 1971. By the 1980s, he shifted to the right, popularizing the claim marijuana was a “gateway drug.”

At the December 2017 meeting with Sessions, DuPont was slated to present on “the effect of marijuana on drugged driving,” a topic on which he has proposed some radical ideas.'

Possible bait and switch op.

The whole marijuana kerfuffle in the news at the moment is really ridiculous on several levels.


  • The Blue states and sanctuary cities have blatantly stated that they would disregard any federal legislation that would remove protection for illegal aliens.
    Therefore, why don't these same "defiant" states and cities simply state that they will not enforce any anti-marijuana legislation?

  • Trump knows that marijuana is big business. He also knows that illegal marijuana contributes to crime, non-violent prisoner populations, and corruption.
    I suspect that this is all a distraction from the Michael Wolff book. Notice Trump has (uncharacteristically) not commented or Tweeted on Jeff Session's "war on pot". It is a red herring.

  • MS-13: With Trumps war on illegal immigration, human trafficking and the MS-13 cartel, making marijuana legal on a national scale would do significant damage to the cartel and criminal activity on the southern border.
    Keeping marijuana illegal makes no fiscal, legal, or political sense.

Are you in earnest resolved never to barter your liberty for the lordly servitude of a court, but to live free, fearless, and independent? Then never enter the place from whence so few have been able to return; never come within the circle of ambition; nor ever bring yourself into comparison with those masters of the earth who have already engrossed the attention of half mankind before you.

Sessions Goes After 'Dangerous' Marijuana, Grants Opioid Maker Rights To Synthetic THC
http://www.naturalblaze.com/2018/01/sessions-marijuana-grants-fentanyl-maker-rights-synthetic-thc.html




'Here is a tragic joke: Why is synthetic THC deemed safe but natural marijuana is considered dangerous? Punchline: Because the government said so.

It would be funny, if this new nightmare scenario weren’t true and if the “war on drugs” didn’t result in the death and imprisonment of innocent people. Or, the denial of medical rights to people in severe pain. Or the assurance that those dependent on deadly opioids stay that way.

Last week we reported that the Federal Government just ended its leniency toward states’ rights for medical marijuana. Attorney General Jeff Sessions overturned a previous memo that granted federal leniency toward states’ marijuana rights. The statement last Thursday said, “today’s memo on federal marijuana enforcement simply directs all U.S. Attorneys to use previously established prosecutorial principles that provide them all the necessary tools to disrupt criminal organizations, tackle the growing drug crisis, and thwart violent crime across our country.”

He is, in effect, releasing the federal attack hounds. But it gets worse – while Sessions is rabid with his policy toward the marijuana plant, his DEA has just granted a Pharma fentanyl maker a partial monopoly over the sale of synthetic TCH – made to mimic cannabis exactly.'

Sessions Death Penalty Memo Could Apply to State-Legal Cannabis Grower
http://truthinmedia.com/sessions-death-penalty-drugs-memo-legal-cannabis-growers/





'When Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memo to U.S. attorneys regarding seeking the death penalty for some drug traffickers, which was part of President Trump’s plan to combat the opioid epidemic released weeks ago, many pundits failed to miss the potential implications for legal marijuana growers.

The memo utilizes a little-known federal law that already allows for the death penalty to be used for certain criminal offenses, including specific racketeering activities, the use of a gun that resulted in a death during a drug trafficking crime, murder in advancing a criminal enterprise and dealing in “extremely large” quantities of drugs, according to The Hill.

“I strongly encourage federal prosecutors to use these statutes, when appropriate, to aid in our continuing fight against drug trafficking and the destruction it causes in our nation,” Sessions wrote.


Although Sessions’ memo seems focused largely on opioids, the federal law being referenced contains no such drug-specific limitation on prosecutors’ power. The Denver Post reported that upon following the law’s “meandering route through federal statutes,” the following conclusion will be reached: “that anyone convicted of cultivating more than 60,000 marijuana plants or possessing more than 60,000 kilograms of a substance that contains marijuana could face death as a punishment.”

Despite the law being on the books, the death penalty has never been sought before for those dealing large quantities of drugs, according to a Justice Department official cited by The Hill. The Post reported that in June, there were nearly 1 million marijuana plants under cultivation by Colorado’s state-licensed cannabis businesses.'
