Donald Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions will be making marijuana “illegal” again, according to the Associated Press. By rescinding an Obama policy that prevented prosecution in States where it was legal, it’s now risky again to sell, buy and grow Marijuana in those states.
Sessions will instead let federal prosecutors where pot is legal decide how aggressively to enforce federal marijuana law, the people said.
The move by President Donald Trump’s attorney general likely will add to confusion about whether it’s OK to grow, buy or use marijuana in states where pot is legal, since long-standing federal law prohibits it.
Last month a bunch of anti-Marijuana activists met with sessions, including one Dr. Robert DuPont. A national model bill he helped write in 2010 called on law enforcement to test anyone stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence for all controlled substances, and arresting them if any trace at all shows up in their system—regardless of the amount.
While the bill includes an exemption for drivers who consumed a drug pursuant to a prescription, it would not apply to medicinal-marijuana users because doctors are not currently allowed to prescribe pot, only offer a recommendation for its use.
Sessions’ announcement will come just days after California joined states such as Colorado in permitting pot for recreational purposes. The drug will be legal for adults 21 and older, and residents will be allowed to grow up to six plants and possess up to an ounce of marijuana.
WATCHDOG: NRA Russian Dark Money Funded Pro-Trump Ads Illegally
Watchdogs say an unknown amount of Russian dark money funneled through the National Rifle Association helped Donald Trump win the presidency.
The NRA is claiming they only received a few donations from Russia, but refuses to allow its books to be audited.
Robert Maguire is an investigator with the Center for Responsive Politics, which runs opensecrets.org. He said the dark money loophole that allows nonprofits to take limitless donations without reporting the source means we can’t really tell how much foreign money was spent in the 2016 presidential election.
“It’s safe to assume that what we’re seeing is the tip of the iceberg,” Maguire said. “The problem is that there’s no way to track that.”
But that figure does not include large payments from U.S. subsidiaries of companies owned by Russian oligarchs. Investigators have found such payments went to others in Trump’s orbit.
Direct foreign funding of American campaigns is illegal and could be politically toxic.
Maguire said the problem is that it might also be invisible.
And he pointed out that in the 2016 presidential race, the NRA spent three-times what it had supporting Mitt Romney in 2012 – and the money came just as big GOP donors were distancing themselves from Trump.
“The NRA spent more money than it has in any previous cycle,” Maguire said. “Without the NRA stepping into that vacuum, it would have severely impacted the chances that he would have won the election.”
Maguire said the NRA got what it paid for. After the Parkland shooting, Trump said he might back some gun-control measures – until the National Rifle Association got involved.
“The NRA in a matter of weeks had two private meetings with the president,” Maguire observed; “and we saw those sort of initiatives kind of fade away.”
First Lady’s Office Becomes Political Pawn for Trump, Issues Statement Against Samantha Bee
First lady Melania Trump’s office responded to TBS comedian Samantha Bee’s profane tirade against presidential adviser Ivanka Trump by saying it was an example of an “astounding” double standard.
“The double standard is truly astounding. Time and again the Trump family and members of this Administration are subjected to false reporting, hateful rhetoric and outrageous lies all in the name of freedom of speech or comedy, yet the mainstream media stays silent,” her spokesperson said.
Bee had called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t” in a segment targeting her for posting a photo with her daughter over the weekend.
Strangely despite the office of the First Lady, didn’t actually have the First Lady, Melania Trump saying these things, as she is still missing.
Is Vegas Sheriff Lombardo’s Career Over? Hidden Wife Connected to Ponzi Scheme of Former Lover and Son
People are already calling for the Sheriff to step down after a report from an investigative journalist on the conspiracy site Inforwars was confirmed by others. According to the report Sheriff Lombardo has been hiding a “secret wife” from the public because she was a partner and lover to convicted fraudster William Gayler, and even had a child with him – who is now living with Lombardo.
Lou Colagiovanni puts together a very good case that the Sheriff was personally involved in helping to make sure nothing happened to Mr. Gayler that could show up in the public, and that his prosecution was handled with kid gloves.
“The Trial of William Gayler was rolling along at a typical pace until it became inconvenient for Joe Lombardo’s aspirations to ascend to the office of Sheriff of Clark County. In May 2014, just six months before the election, the trial of William Gayler began to crawl to a snail’s pace and the trial did not resume at a typical speed until February 2015 after Joe Lombardo won the election.”
