If you live in a place where recreational pot use is legal, you’re probably wondering whether you need to start worrying about getting prosecuted for it. The answer is probably not, at least according to initial indications from the dozen or so U.S. attorneys general who get to make that call.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is under heavy criticism — even from within his own Republican Party — for announcing last week that federal prosecutors can decide for themselves whether to press pot cases in the states that have legalized its use, reversing an Obama-era policy in which the federal government mostly turned a blind eye to marijuana (which is still illegal federally) unless it was tied to violent gangs or drug cartels.

“Today’s memo on federal marijuana enforcement simply directs all U.S. attorneys to use previously established prosecutorial principles that provide them all the necessary tools to disrupt criminal organizations, tackle the growing drug crisis, and thwart violent crime across our country,” Sessions said Thursday.

Maybe Congress needs to get off their collective asses and pass an MJ reform or maybe even a DACA reform?  We ARE paying these dufusses to DO things, are we not?

No. Their big-corporation donors and PACs are paying them.

Ah, then that means no one is using tax-payer money to support Congress, very good, that's at least $13,500,000 a year in savings for basic salaries and benefits for the core membership.

I don't know if there will ever be all out legalization of marijuana in this country because of the thought that marijuana leads to other drugs which I find totally crazy.  The only thing that leads to other drugs is your stupid need for making your world fall to the background.  Other drugs including heroin, cocaine, etc. are known to lose your ability to really care about what is gong on in your life.  It has been proven time and time again.
