Grandaddy was at the tip of the spear in defending slavery while Jeff is at the tip of the spear in attacking marijuana. The veterans, epileptics, children, cancer victims, millions of Americans, the States who have determined that marijuana is medicine, well they can all go to hell. The tip of the spear of the Federal Government is Jeff Sessions, and his intent to attack the individual states on marijuana amounts to, take your pick; incompetence, inciting Civil war, complying with lobbyist against national interest, breaking the law - the constitution states that in all issues relating to marijuana - so long as it is an internal affair - each state writes and enforces its own laws.

It's old and dated thinking and this will be the nail in the coffin of any potentially good things Trump will do, this horrible mess will overshadow it. Kiss your taxpaying money goodbye! Same swamp, same swamp creatures doing the same swampy, creaturely things.
Pharmaceutical companies are the ones who are providing the actual deadly and harmful being taken by Americans. Cannabis is not the problem and how dumb of them not to know that. I have the freedom to practice my religion and you can't override a citizens referendum. They are close cousins. The states can make their own laws, these fucs are insane and out of control!!!
