The reports that President-elect Donald Trump plans to select Sen. Jeff Sessions as his attorney general has marijuana activists very concerned — and likely for good reason.
"This drug is dangerous. You cannot play with it. It's not funny. It's not something to laugh about, and trying to send the message with clarity that good people don't smoke marijuana," Sessions said at a Senate hearing.
Sessions has been a staunch opponent of loosening restrictions on pot. Back in the 1980s, Sessions even joked that he was OK with the Ku Klux Klan until he found they smoked pot.
