Jeff Sessions named cannabis ‘prohibitionist of the year’ for 2017

Published

on

Attorney General Jeff Sessions can now add “marijuana prohibitionist of the year” to his list of accolades.

The honor was bestowed upon the attorney general by Civilized, a cannabis culture website, who inaugurated their first ever “prohibitionist of the year” award upon the AG.

Prior to taking office as the country’s top cop, Sessions gained infamy in the 1980’s for “joking” that he thought the Ku Klux Klan were “OK until I found out they smoked pot.”

His anti-cannabis stance grew with his tenure in the Senate, and has repeatedly hinted at re-upping his war on marijuana as AG.

“For the record,” Civilized noted, “Sessions does not have a background in science or any training in medical research — unless being named after two Confederate leaders makes you qualified to solicit medical advice in the Deep South.”

Congratulations to Attorney General Sessions for the high praise.

"Sadly, there's nothing more predictable and pathetic than Washington Democrats biting the bipartisan rube bait," he writes. "They still believe we live in a world where bipartisan comity sells."

President Donald Trump is touting his trade deal with Canada and Mexico as the greatest deal ever made.

But as conservative Ramesh Ponnuru writes at the National Review, Trump's new North American trade deal is actually just a "a slightly modified version" of NAFTA, which the president regularly called "the worst trade deal ever made."

Ponnuru goes on to detail the small changes made in the new NAFTA and shows how some analyses find that they're positive while others are more bearish, including a particularly pessimistic analysis from the International Monetary Fund.

On Tuesday, House Democrats announced their articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

The articles, which are expected to be marked up starting Thursday, include abuse of power for attempting to use military aid and a White House meeting to extort the president of Ukraine into investigating the Democratic National Committee and former Vice President Joe Biden's family, and obstruction of Congress, for systematically instructing members of his administration to refuse to comply with subpoenas relating to the impeachment investigation.
