Anti-Pot Hearing Slammed As ‘One-Sided Sham’| 0
On display for the world to see, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Sen. Diane Feinstein and Sen. Jeff Sessions along with the rest of the low-rent spectacle that is the United States Senate, played hardball politics when dogmatic hacks embarrassed by failure began to focus on the country’s overwhelming desire for true marijuana reform. Criticized as a cruel joke by many, Michael Collins of the Drug Policy Alliance condemned the hearings as nothing more than an obnoxious farce:
“These hearings are a one-sided sham with the deck stacked with witnesses who have a track record of vehemently opposing marijuana legalization,”
Seething to the Huffington Post, Collins argued the Caucus on International Narcotics Control was little more than a devious fraud perpetrated by moral hucksters.
“An honest evaluation of marijuana legalization would include the undeniable benefits of legalization, like the massive drop in marijuana arrests, the billions in taxes, and the transition from an underground market to a regulated one.”
The lopsided hearing on marijuana’s fast-growing popularity brought out haters and antagonists queuing up to spew their venom in a dark parade of modern-day reefer madness. Not one to be outdone when it comes to making hyperbolic statements, OG Trump supporter and Alabama’s Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions gave a quick look at the dark underbelly of conservative logic.
“We need grown-ups in charge in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized … that it’s in fact a very real danger.”
Petulant, juvenile and ignoring the scientific data, Sen. Sessions then heaped praise on the recently deceased Nancy Reagan, and her senseless Odyssey to eliminate drug use via the childish ‘Just Say No’ campaign.
Representing either a plague of wishful thinking or some form of evil humor, Sen. Sessions seems to a forgotten about the laundry list of political puffers when he concluded that, “Good people don’t smoke marijuana.”
