Sessions Is Re-Escalating the Racist Republican War on Drugs

As I mentioned a couple days ago, I have been using medical cannabis this year to manage what has otherwise become quite brutal insomnia. Sessions signal that he will set a hammer to shatter the enabling policy for ongoing legalization efforts will hurt many many people, me included, and stall what was beginning to be a promising end to the catastrophically failed racist War on Drugs (that legalization has been profoundly uneven in ways that still reflect the racism of the whole War on Drugs is also true and lamentable but this Sessions move will exacerbate all that is worst and blunt all that has been best about it to the benefit of no one at all). Nice to see Californians and Coloradans immediately promising resistance and aid.
