Trump’s pick for attorney general: ‘Good people don’t smoke marijuana’

Sen. Jeff Sessions is a “drug war dinosaur,” advocates say.

 

COMMENTS CHARLES McCAIN: Senator Sessions: I like to think I am a good person. I try to be. Not sure about you but will give you the benefit of the doubt. Occasionally I smoke marijuana in jurisdictions where it is legal. Hence, I am a good person and I smoke marijuana so you are wrong in my case. Do you believe that you can judge others as to whether they are good or bad? According to the Bible, only God can do that. I won’t judge you for your silly comment. I will leave that to the Almighty.

President Obama smoked lots of marijuana when he was in high school and college. He is a good person and has been a great President. He is also a lot smarter than you. Unfortunately, Senator, and I say this as a fellow Southerner, you embody the provincialism and narrowness of world view exhibited by so many white Southerners.

One toke over the line sure feels good

Senator Sessions, as Attorney General designate, are you aware that marijuana has been proven efficacious for a number of medical conditions including chronic pain and PTSD? You may want to read up on this. Also, you may want to get a briefing on the states where recreational marijuana is legal.

I suggest you go to one of those states and smoke some bud. You may change you mind and decide enjoying a hit of marijuana might be good for you and loosen you up a little bit since you are obviously a very up-tight white guy.
