    Jeff Sessions is a stupid, pitiful example of the kind of politicians that often come out of the state of Alabama and the South in general. He may have somehow gotten through law school but so have a lot of other idiots. He has the kind of mind set and that Southern, squinched up face meanness about him that makes me ashamed to be from Alabama.

      Agreed. There is a meanness and it’s clearly on display when we see his nasty face.

    But the irrational attitude toward Cannabis is also hard to explain. Everyone I know that’s over 80 (and that’s a lot of people) thinks it’s “dangerous” but without any factual support. I’ve read a lot about the origin of Marijuana prohibition and it’s all about outright fraud, forgery and bigotry. There was a strong motivation to find new jobs for the people supported by the Volstead act after it was repealed. We call it Marijuana mostly to pin the blame on Mexicans – just as Trump still does. No amount of study, or experience or experimentation will convince half this country because it’s attained quasi religious status and we are certainly a god soggy country that refuses to dry out. So maybe one day, but a generation has to go and a lot of churches need to see it as something other than competition.
