To VDB's point, here's the GOP junior Senator from CO expressing a similar sentiment (albeit in a far less hilarious way)

Quote
@SenCoryGardner
This reported action directly contradicts what Attorney General Sessions told me prior to his confirmation. With no prior notice to Congress, the Justice Department has trampled on the will of the voters in CO and other states

I am prepared to take all steps necessary, including holding DOJ nominees, until the Attorney General lives up to the commitment he made to me prior to his confirmation.

Instead of asking Jeff nicely to look the other way on federal law and then acting shocked – SHOCKED – when he doesn't, how about just pass some different laws? These people do realize they are legislators, right?

It's been so long since they actually legislated instead of the grandstanding circle jerk they've been engaging in for the past decade I'm not sure they remember that.

Exactly, they don’t remember how to legislate

Continuing our tradition of sensible liberalization of the law, the Vermont state Senate today approved a bill legalizing possession of up to an ounce of cannabis, as well as up to two mature and four immature plants. No commercial market has been created; apparently the legislature favors a home-grow economy. Our mostly useless Rpublican gov has indicated he'll sign the bill into law.

well, it's not quite what the new governor was promising, but it's a good step - NJ has widely expanded the medical program in the past week, allowing more chronic pain users and those suffering from anxiety and migraines.  they also got rid of the ridiculous doctor registry requirements. 

very soon, i imagine this will be me:

I just watched that this morning and got a kick out of it. 

That Jordan Peterson guy, though.  Christ.  Some of his arguments were creeping dangerously close to the kind of anti-intellectualism you see in right wing circles.

WE DID IT

Good on ya.

This Trudeau tweet though:

It’s been too easy for our kids to get marijuana - and for criminals to reap the profits. Today, we change that. Our plan to legalize & regulate marijuana just passed the Senate.

Of course, what made those people "criminals" was not that they were giving weed to kids particularly, but that they were selling weed to anyone at all. So down with those dirty criminals but hey congratulations to us for righting the injustice that was marijuana criminalization.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

It's not well worded and I'm not defending it per se, but there are definitely criminal organizations that traffic cannabis because it's profitable, as one of several illegal activities they undertake.  I think he's referring to the organized crime elements?

I was going to complain about the fact that US border guards will probably ask potential Canadian tourists lots of questions about using Cannabis but given everything happening right now that's some serious white privilege shit.
