If the newly minted Trump pick for attorney general Jeff Sessions has his way, the US government under him ,will execute pot sellers.

"In 1996, when serving as Alabama’s attorney general, he promoted H.B. 242, S.B. 291, a state bill to establish mandatory death sentences for a second drug trafficking conviction, including for dealing marijuana.

The drug bill was advertised as targeting “kingpins,” but to qualify for execution, the defendant merely needed to lead a group of five people and make the minimum wage in drug proceeds. Alabama’s minimum wage was $4.25 per hour in 1996.

Well, we can put this post to bed.

Happy day! Sen. Sessions no longer supports a mandatory death penalty for selling pot.

I love tossing in the "racist" word. Whoever uses it first always loses the argument not to mention the election and 1200 seats in 8 years.

Diane you are actually proud to be part of fraternity of racists and bigots. I'd try to shame you, but you being a right wing cult member it would mean nothing. I've noticed you have no comment for my post a 'History of Violence', because you know what i have said is all true and quite a sad comentary on American society .

Zap, the hobbyhorse of political correctness has been ridden to death and is now counterproductive. Sure, it is a shame having a Klaxon for AG, but this was inevitable once Combover won. Just be patient. I trust Trump ... to really screw up. Thirty years ago he promised to make Atlantic City great again; have you seen Flint by the Sea lately? The best thing about Combover is that there is no method to his madness; just "look at me!"

Jeff Sessions is a sick twisted racist rabid dog who should be leashed and kept away from society until his sickness consumes him.

Ideally, yes. But in the mean time I hope that Combover, Sessions et al. may do great good; I expect them to destroy the GOP. What could be better than that? PantsuitonFire has already destroyed the Democratic Party, though few realize it yet. With both parties having destroyed themselves we get the rare opportunity of a fresh start.
