Yep, if Little Jiffy goes all Gestapo and starts shutting down legal dispensaries - it'll create a firestorm and total backlash. Go for it!
Consider this scenario. Sessions initiates some kind of new War on Weed, one that results in lots of splashy headlines, dramatic video of state-licensed businesses being shut down and thoughtful debates about the proper balance between federal and state power. Then the backlash begins. Even many Republicans express their dismay at the Justice Department’s heavy-handed actions. Pressure builds on President Trump (whose comments on the topic have been mostly vague and noncommittal) to rein Sessions in.
The controversy energizes cannabis advocates and the voters who agree with them. More and more candidates come out in favor of legalization, or at least a new federal law that would remove the drug from Schedule 1 (which puts it in the same category as heroin) and leave it up to states to decide how to handle it without any federal interference.
Then in 2020, we see the first major-party nominee who advocates full legalization of marijuana.
That last part might not happen three years from now (though some past and future nominees have already sponsored bills to allow medical use). But it will eventually, because politicians inevitably follow where the public has moved.
Most of them do, anyway. But on this issue, Sessions is not such a politician — he’s going to pursue that demon weed no matter what the public thinks. We all know where America is heading on this issue, and Sessions may end up pushing us there just a little faster.
Untraceable shell companies are buying Trump properties and in many cases for far more than the appraised value - who could forget the mansion he bought for 40 million and sold to a Russian oligarch few years later for 95 million? http://money.cnn.com/2016/07/27/news...-deal-mansion/ Well, the good news just keeps on coming!
A USA TODAY investigation discovered that anyone could potentially buy multimillion dollar condos from President Trump. The investigation reveals the most complete picture yet of the staggering inventory and value of Trump-owned real estate. USA TODAY
The volume of real estate creates an extraordinary and unprecedented potential for people, corporations or foreign interests to try to influence a president. Anyone who wanted to court favor with the president could snap up multiple properties or purposefully overpay. They could buy in the name of a shell company, making it impossible for the public to know who was behind the sales.The potential for conflicts is exacerbated by Trump's refusal to release his tax returns or fully separate himself from his businesses, breaking with precedent set by presidents going back four decades. Since Congress passed the Ethics in Government Act in 1978, all six presidents from Carter to Obama established blind trusts or limited investments to assets like mutual funds. Trump has not.
Since Election Day, records show Trump companies have sold at least 14 luxury condos and home-building lots for about $23 million. Half were sold to limited liability companies. No names were listed in deeds, obscuring buyers’ identities.
Buyers and renters of Trump properties include companies or individuals tracing to addresses in at least a dozen countries.
There is no shortage of media coverage for the “Alt Right”—the name for a loosely organized group of white nationalists who’ve rebranded their image and learned how to use the internet. The Alt Right’s army of racist trolls call for mass deportations, have reintroduced anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and holocaust denial into public discourse (and Trump campaign ads), spread Islamophobic lies, promote rape culture, and lionize the police murder of hundreds of people of color every year. They’ve been championed by Breitbart’s Steven Bannon, who Trump has appointed as his new chief strategist.
However, the local media has overlooked the Alt Right’s presence in New York. Perhaps this is because organized racists often hide behind the internet’s anonymity in order to spew their toxic stew of Pepe memes and curious fixation on cuckolding. The first step in countering them is pulling off the sheets they are hiding under. These people have jobs and hang out in neighborhood bars. We encourage everyone to get to know your local fascist.

and wait for it but Le Pen met with Trump on Trump towers then traveled to Meet with Putin.
Obama wades into French election fight
Former President Barack Obama gently waded back into international politics on Thursday, talking by phone with French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron.
Macron is the center-left candidate, and the leading contender to stop far-right Marine Le Pen from winning in either Sunday's first round or the subsequent runoff.
Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said "an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement."
A source familiar said that Macron had sought the call. He's hoping to preserve France's pro-European Union bent, in line with Obama's vision of global politics — and opposed to President Donald Trump's. Le Pen had meetings in Trump Tower during the transition and has since traveled to Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin.
