Skip to comments.Marijuana super PAC created to oust legislative 'sphincter' Rep. Pete Sessions

Marijuana reform activists have created a new super PAC aimed exclusively at defeating Texas Republican Rep. Pete Sessions, the House Rules Committee chairman who has blocked cannabis reform legislation from reaching the House floor.
Marijuana Policy Project founder and former Executive Director Rob Kampia is leading the effort, which he said is crucial to legalizing medical marijuana federally and affirming federalism for recreational pot, two policies supported in principle by President Trump.
Everyone knows who he is and that hes our biggest problem on Capitol Hill. Half of my job has already been done by Pete Sessions himself," Kampia told the Washington Examiner. "All Im going to do is pass the hat."

just let it reach the floor already.
Marijuana prohibition is a losing issue for the Republican party. What part of ‘State’s Rights’ doesn’t he get?
Because his district encompasses a wealthy north Dallas suburb that is terrified of marijuana, but fully embraces the three martini lunch.
They'll dwarf all but the very largest existing lobbying powerhouses and the same people who now control the worst democrat lobby groups will control the new ones.
Seesh, there are hundreds of reason to remove Sessions, this must hit the list at about #487.
Must be related to Jeff.
Id that you Cheech, or is it you Chong?
But first, let’s get high.
I want Pete Sessions out for different reasons, he has been a Cheap Labor Express stooge for decades.
The first 100 reasons all revolve around the illegal alien inundation and how he has enabled it and hobbled enforcement.
And just so everyone understands not everyone is in favor a legalizing pot
It used to be Hatch. PS must have taken the torch. To be honest I have no issues with legaization but edibles should be banned.
That’s a whole different ball game.

Conservatives can easily get into the mold of telling everyone else what to do just as the left does.
The drug lobby wants to keep pot illegal so they can continue foist deadly, addictive meds on the populous for the reason that only they can produce, sell and profit from highly controlled substances. (Legal sales of pot are only the beginning to growing your own.) Pot would wipe out the antidepressant business as well as much of the pain killers.
Recreational Chemistry losers bump for later.....
Rep. Pete Sessions Is no relation to AG Jeff Sessions... though they are both sphincters of a different caliber.
Anti-Marijuana is a losing platform, just stop it.
just in case, I’m Pinging the ‘phony conservatives who have no clue about State’s Rights’ list and the ‘jackboot licker caucus’!
“just let it reach the floor already.
Marijuana prohibition is a losing issue for the Republican party. What part of States Rights doesnt he get?”
With the publicity about to hit the Congressman, and with 64% of the country supporting outright legalization and 77% supporting medical, Mr. Sessions will certainly relent within the week.
That includes broad majorities of Republicans.
If that's different in other States, well, States Rights right back at ya'. If some State wants to stand anyone caught with pot up against a wall and shoot them, that's also a State's Rights instance. Works both ways.
Some sane policy with regards to the line between someone with a stash for their own use and someone dealing with a misdemeanor for the former and felony for the latter consistent across the country is better than a patchwork quilt in this case. That's Federal decriminalization of use, not an infringement of State's Rights since a State could bring State charges rather than Federal Charges. So, yeah, if you let the knife cut both ways, it's a State's Rights issue. If you dictate decriminalization, you're no different than the people on the other side of the fence.
While I don't care about either casual or total drooling idiot pot smokers, I do care about what the proponents of total legalization will claim legalization of pot "proves" about any and all addictive drugs now in existence or dreamed up in a lab in the future.
I also get a kick out of the "free society" argument that always revolves around dope, prostitution, and all sorts of perverse sex or porno.
And don't bother with the "slippery slope" being all BS, either. If you can look at the little court cases chipping away at our rights over the past sixty years and not see how that gradient is created you're blind.
Dope smoking is bad for the lungs and mind and offends mine nose.
