The empire strikes back.
Jeff Sessions is obsessed with cannabis, and with locking up people of color. He may perceive California as the tipping point in legalization. This very well could be his last chance to preserve mass incarceration as he knows it. https://t.co/QfzdOMyopO

GOP states rights:
You can’t force us to recognize & protect people’s rights & freedoms.
We can force you to restrict & deny people’s rights & freedoms. https://t.co/S1d0HIPwwg

Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Independent — all agree: Sessions’ motives are the worst. And apart from all the (poor, powerless, mostly not-white) people he’s going to hurt, the Republican “brand” will suffer because of his regressive obsession with “the demon weed”.
No idea if Jeff Sessions actually cares about pot but he and cops deeply care about cops being able to arrest and imprison the "wrong" people whenever they want to and petty possession charges are a tool for that.

Are we about to see Bilbo Biggot ride in on a horse to lead federal troops to set fire acres of marijuana crops and arrest growers in legalization states? https://t.co/ruvAKXhSzk

I’m proud that so many Democratic legislators are stepping up…
Attorney General Sessions, your unjust war against Americans who legally use #marijuana is shameful & insults the democratic processes that played out in states across the country.

DOJ should investigate how pharma helped create the opioid crisis, not institute policies that take marijuana based medicines from patients and needlessly target non-violent minority youths.
