As if this place wasn’t already a ‘papers please’ police state enough, now White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has announced that Trump’s Administration is about to ramp up the failed drug war against cannabis on the same day that Attorney General Jeff Sessions (referred to as a “drug war dinosaur” for his stance on marijuana) reversed the plan to phase out the human rights horrors that are private prisons… all on the same day.
The intent being that the feds are going to crack down on states which have legalized recreational use of marijuana… so they can fill up the private prisons with more people convicted of smoking a harmless plant?
So far, eight states have completely legalized marijuana, including the entire West Coast. Colorado and Washington have seen tax profits of over $200 million and $250 million respectively just last year alone. California stands to pull in $1 billion in its first year as a totally legal state.
