Jeff Sessions confirms he’s going after states that have legalized marijuana

‘Today’s THC levels are so high that it’s causing violence’

WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions told reporters who were at the Department of Justice Monday that “experts” have been telling him that marijuana causes “violence” and is no good.

‘I’m definitely not a fan of the drugs expanded use,’ Sessions said.

“I believe it’s an unhealthy practice and current levels of THC in marijuana are very high compared to what they were a few years ago.”

“Most of you probably know I don’t think America is going to be a better place when more people of all ages and particularly young people start smoking pot,” Sessions pointed out.

“I would just say it does remain a violation of federal law to distribute marijuana throughout any place in the United States, whether a state legalizes it or not.”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said last week that he expects to see “greater enforcement” of federal laws when it comes to recreational marijuana.

Will there be a new war on pot?
