WATCH: Jeff Sessions Marijuana Rolling Papers Are A Thing

WATCH: Jeff Sessions Marijuana Rolling Papers Are A Thing

Reprinted with permission from AlterNet.

A group supporting the legalization of marijuana has come up with a nifty fundraising scheme: Rolling papers with the attorney general’s image on the packaging.

Who better to poke fun at than the cluelessly anti-marijuana Sessions—the man who claims “good people” don’t smoke pot, that marijuana is a gateway drug, and who once said he liked the local Ku Klux Klan boys until he found out they smoked weed?

The folks at #JeffSesh apparently agreed, selecting the attorney general’s visage to grace the packages of “General Jeff’s Old Rebel Session Papers,” replete with the warning to “Don’t Beauregard That Joint My Friend.”

“We’re not criminals, junkies or idiots. Regular Jeffs all over the country — good, responsible, patriotic Americans — have a sesh now and then… and it’s OK!” the group’s website proclaims. “Every time you sesh with any brand of JeffSesh papers, you’re helping keep the law moving forward — and not back to the Nixon era,” the website says. “You’re saying we’ve moved on, Jeff.”

The rolling paper packages come in either black or white and go for $5 each. #JeffSesh says they’re selling out, but hasn’t said whether any money raised will go to any specific marijuana legalization groups.

Former President Donald Trump, Gen. Mark Milley and former Vice President Mike Pence

We’ve long known who Donald Trump is: narcissistic, impressed with authoritarian displays, contemptuous of anyone he sees as low status, a man for whom the highest principle is his own self-interest. It’s still shocking to read new accounts of the moments where he’s most willing to come out and show all that, to not even pretend to be anything but what he is—and holy crap, does The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg have the goods in his new profile of outgoing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Mark Milley, which focuses on Milley’s efforts to protect the military as a nonpartisan institution under Trump.

From Alabama Republicans' blatantly discriminatory congressional map, to the Wisconsin GOP's ousting of a the states' top election official and attempt to impeach a liberal Supreme Court justice, to North Carolina's decision to allow the majority-Republican legislature to appoint state and local election board members, News from the States reports these anti-democratic moves have all recently "generated national headlines" and stoked fears ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
