Or is this culture appropriation or some shit, Roc?

JMO, but I'd bet Bob Marley would love it if everyone listened to his music, especially while getting high. It's those who wear dreadlocks as a fashion choice without considering the religious, spiritual, or cultural origins who I would consider appropriating the look/music.

Trump said several times during the campaign that he thought medical weed was okay, and that he'd respect states' rights vis-a-vis recreational mj.

Then he nominated Sessions and the party was over.

When a candidate repeatedly says they will be a “law & order president”, you should expect they will eventually enforce federal drug laws.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner from CO was piiiiissed at Sessions yesterday. Just blasted him and his decision. Gardner sits on the Judiciary Cmte and says he'll place a hold on every nominee until Sessions reverses his decision. That's going to cause the Party some heartburn.

Sessions knows his career won't last much longer and he's just trying push it through. I think marijuana is bigger than sessions at this point, and it would be another blunder for the repubs to embrace this move.

Sessions is doing Trump's bidding creating another diversion.

Well it's not a coincidence that ALL of the states that have legalized are Democrat controlled. That's a lot of revenue for social services. Trump and his gang can't have life being good in blue states.

LOL at Vermont passing a legalization bill hours after Sessions starts thumping his chest.

If Sessions really does leave it up to the USAs, there might not be much done. Most of those folks are political animals playing the long game with eyes on a bigger prize. Going after legal weed isn't going to win a lot of friends in any party apparatus.

Serious question because I'm not a constitutional scholar. Can States band together to sue the Federal government?

Pretty sure they can. Didn't several get together to sue over Obamacare?

Come to think of it, you're right. This might make interesting case of states' rights if such a thing were undertaken.

Suppose all those states band together and threaten to secede?

Then my prediction of a Balkanized US will have come much earlier than I'd thought.

I figure he can't be happy. Trump is going back on his campaign promise.
