And so it was that activists from the DC Cannabis Coalition convened at the office of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Trump's nominee for Attorney General, to discuss the Senator's recent remarks that "good people don't smoke marijuana"...
"Good people don't smoke marijuana."
– Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-AL, Trump AG nominee
So, roughly speaking, that'd be maybe 60 million people in at least half the states in the country that voted for the decriminalization or legalization of cannabis for recreational and/or medical use? Wow, that's a whole lot of bad people, Senator.
From the latest at dcmj.org:
Donald Trump has tapped one of the biggest prohibitionists in Congress to be the Attorney General of the United States: Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. Earlier this year the Alabama Senator said “good people don’t smoke marijuana,” and while we don’t know yet if he’ll respect states rights (or DC’s rights since we are not a state) or if he’ll do what John Ashcroft did as George W. Bush’s Attorney General: raid lawful cannabis grows, raid lawful dispensaries, and even go so far as crack down on paraphernalia vendors.

After running the most piss-poor campaign ever with the most godawful candidate ever and saddling us with a fascist real-estate huckster, what do the Democrats and Liberal America respond with? A suggestion that we wear safety pins as a sign of "resistance" and solidarity with the Muslims who will be persecuted and the immigrants about to be deported en masse. That's it. That's all they've got for us.
So, it's looking like the safety pin is about to replace the AIDS Awareness Ribbon as the go-to empty gesture for milquetoast Liberals and Hollywood asshats.
I'm serious. Just you wait. I'll lay you better than even money that on Oscar Night next year, the red carpet will be infested with showbiz doorknobs wearing 24k gold safety pins on their tuxedoes and gowns.

True to classic form, the Democratic Party is desperately looking for somebody to blame -- anybody but itself -- for Tuesday's Presidential catastrophe. Never mind the hopeless load of their own baggage they were schlepping around through the entire campaign -- and this pile ain't gonna fit in any overhead bin, either.
