Attorney General Jeff Sessions has never been a fan of marijuana legalization.
But on Tuesday, Rep. Steve Cohen sought the nature of Sessions’s opposition.
Last year, as a senator representing Alabama, Sessions said that the leaders of the United States government should send a “message with clarity that good people don’t smoke marijuana.”
Cohen wanted to know what Sessions meant by “good people,” so he rattled off the names of prominent Republicans who’ve smoked weed, and asked, “which of those are not good people?”
Sessions called weed “a very real danger,” and blasted former President Barack Obama for being “lax” when talking about the drug, which is legal for recreational use in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, D.C., Maine, Massachusetts, California, and Alaska.
