Trump’s Attorney General Declares War on Marijuana with the Most Idiotic Statement Ever

Trump’s Attorney General Declares War on Marijuana with the Most Idiotic Statement Ever
By Tom Cahill

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was apparently not smoking anything when he said that higher THC content in marijuana causes violence.

The man Trump picked to head the U.S. Department of Justice (who was deemed too racist to be a judge by a Republican-controlled Senate in 1986) seemingly promised a no-holds-barred war with states that have legal marijuana laws during a Monday evening press gaggle at the DOJ building in Washington, citing “experts” who claimed marijuana use resulted in more violent crime.

“I believe [marijuana use is] an unhealthy practice and current levels of THC in marijuana are very high compared to what they were a few years ago,” Sessions said. “Experts are telling me there’s more violence around marijuana than one would think and there’s big money involved.”

Sessions’ statement about violence increasing as a result of marijuana use doesn’t pass muster. In 2014, researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas concluded that there is no link between marijuana use and an increase in crime rates. Another study conducted by Yale University, Rutgers University, and the University of Buffalo discovered that marijuana use actually helps lower incidents of domestic violence.

What the researchers found surprised them: due to the fact that alcohol and other substances are known to increase domestic violence, they hypothesized that marijuana use would have the same effect. But that was not the case.
“More frequent marijuana use generally predicted less frequent [intimate partner violence] for both men and women over the first 9 years of marriage,” the researchers wrote. Not only that, couples who both used marijuana frequently — compared to one spouse using it more than the other — were at the lowest risk for subsequent partner violence.
AG Sessions also didn’t publicly state whether to not his Department of Justice would prioritize enforcement of federal laws barring the use, possession, sale, or growth of cannabis over state laws where recreational pot use is legal.

However, Sessions’ cryptic response seems to jibe with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s previous statements that the Trump administration would opt for “greater enforcement” of federal pot laws.

“States they can pass the laws they choose,” Sessions told reporters. “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.”

Recreational cannabis use has proven to be an economic boon for states like Colorado, Washington, and Oregon, which have all legalized the sale of cannabis through ballot initiatives in the last five years. All three of those states are ranked among the top 10 best state economies in the country, according to Wallethub. In Colorado alone, the state’s pot shops sold over $1 billion worth of recreational cannabis in 2016, amounting to more than $150 million in tax revenue.

Arrest the President
By Christopher R Rice

Hi, my name is Christopher Rice, and I've been trying to get the truth out to you for over 35 years. Now that the truth is out, wouldn't it be wrong of us, to not admit to the truth?

Because I believe as Jesus taught that "the truth shall set you free".

Fact: Marijuana is not bad for you, non toxic, non-lethal

Fact: Marijuana has many medical uses

Fact: Congress takes 1 million dollars a day, everyday they are open for business from pharmaceutical companies, to keep a safer, more effective alternative, that grows for free in all 50 states- illegal

Fact: Our politicians, our religious leaders, our DAs and judges have all lied to us for greed

Fact: Our system is corrupt

Fact: Millions of American citizen have been locked up for nothing more than smoking a joint. And had their lives ruined because our politicians take bribes from pharmaceutical companies

Fact: Americans have been denied work, housing, food stamps and more because they smoked marijuana

Fact: CPS has kidnapped thousands of children from American families who's only crime was smoking marijuana

Fact: Marijuana is non toxic, non lethal and has never killed anyone. You can't say that about American drug manufactures though they kill thousands of Americans everyday

Fact: Marijuana is a safer alternative. While marijuana's only real side effects are the giggles and the munchies, American drug manufactures have a whole slew of side effect that are usually worse than the illness you're trying to cure in the first place

Fact: Marijuana grows free in all 50 states, while American drug manufactures reap billions of dollars a year in profits, off of sick people

Fact: It would be wrong of us to deny the truth

Fact: 20 trillion dollars transferred from the richest and most powerful country on the planet is a level of graft and corruption that has never been witnessed in the history of mankind

Fact: Your city councils, mayors, attorney generals have all spent more time and more money to keep marijuana dispensaries out of your neighborhoods then what they have to keep pedophiles out of your neighborhoods

Fact:
Our leaders don't care about you, your children or your families. They only care about the all mighty dollar

Fact: 
Prohibition KILLS If you criminalize anything only criminals can sell it. If only criminals can sell it, there's no recourse to law, there's only recourse to violence. That's created the cartels. It's our simultaneous appetite for — and prohibition of — drugs that makes those border territories worth killing for.

Fact: This is true under Republicans and Democrats

Fact: I wrote 
CopsRCorrupt.com so that you could survive now that the law is lawless

Fact: Your silence is your approval for their greed and corruption- so make some noise

What matters more to you? Money or Family

Because if you value your own health and your family more than money, the facts are clear and irrefutable.

I know, they think that they've gotten away with murder, but not on my watch

Hi my name is Chris. As an American citizen our only duty is to "remain informed and vigilant." Somehow we've failed miserably at this. And even something man made like cancer runs through our society, not because its inevitable but because of greed. I'm hoping that you will stand with me to defeat the emerging police state. And hold America to its own ideals that this land, that this government "be of the people, for the people and by the people."

Politicians should not be above the law. Justice is the only way to restore our democracy. Until we arrest our political leaders and make them stand trail for their crimes we will not have justice, we will not have democracy or a functioning Republic.  

Their greed and corruption can not go on unpunished. Too many people have died. Too many people have suffered.

And, this is only one lie that we are talking about so far. Look at the damage they have caused just from this one lie. And there are so many more lies we haven't talked about yet.
