    White House hints at crackdown on recreational marijuana

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday suggested the Trump administration will step up enforcement of federal laws against recreational marijuana.

    “I think you’ll see greater enforcement,” Spicer said, while adding the exact policy is “a question for the Department of Justice.”

    It’s the latest sign President Trump is poised to take a tougher approach than the Obama Justice Department did in states that have legalized the use of recreational marijuana.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions was coy about his approach last month during his confirmation hearing.

    1. A*holes

    Sorry for the foul language…just how I feel at the moment. I would add, don’t forget that Manchin voted for Sessions.

    I don’t see many millennials ever voting Republican again in their lifetimes, though that doesn’t mean they will vote for Democrats either.

      5. They are Republicans

      Some things, like fraud and corruption, aren’t important to them (unless done by a Democrat). But light a joint and they go berserk.
