ATTORNEY GENERAL/CABINET/JEFF SESSIONS: "Having been a federal prosecutor during the height of the drug war, Mr. Sessions is a leading voice against marijuana legalization and the Obama administration’s detente with states that allow recreational pot use. [During the Senate Drug Caucus on 4-5-16 the Senator stated] 'This drug is dangerous. You cannot play with it. It’s not funny. It’s not something to laugh about — and trying to send that message with clarity that good people don’t smoke marijuana.' "
