Dear Pot People: Blame Congress, Not Sessions

Dennis Hof

(Dennis Hof) – When Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he was rescinding the “Cole Memo” – an Obama-era order instructing federal law enforcement authorities to leave marijuana buyers and sellers alone in states that have legalized it – a roar of anger and outrage erupted.

 

U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner – a Republican who represents Colorado where marijuana has been fully legalized by its citizens – threatened to hold up confirmations of any and all Department of Justice nominations until the Cole Memo was re-instated.

 

And Nevada State Sen. Tick Segerblom, considered the “Godfather of Legal Marijuana” in Nevada, not only criticized Sessions, but Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) as well.

 

“(Heller’s) tepid response defers responsibility,” Segerblom wrote in an op-ed, “and leaves him teetering on the edge of irrelevance, as his noncommittal statement did not even criticize the Justice Department’s actions.”

 

Even people who don’t use marijuana, or even support its legalization, criticized Sessions’ decision as a violation of the 10th Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

 

But Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Victor Joecks was absolutely correct when he wrote that while there have been “many violations of states’ rights over the years, Sessions’ pot memo isn’t one of them.”

 

As long as marijuana is illegal under federal law, it’s Sessions’ job to enforce that law. If marijuana should no longer be illegal under federal law for states whose citizens have legalized it – such as Nevada – it’s the job of CONGRESS to change federal law.

 

“Whether marijuana should be legal ought to be up to the individual states,” Mr. Joecks concluded. “That it isn’t remains the fault of Congress and the Supreme Court, not an attorney general instructing his prosecutors to follow the law.”

 

Added Congressman Mark Amodei (R-Nev.), “It’s probably time that Congress get off its butt and start dealing with the issue.”

 

Making the issue worse for constitutionalists, federal anti-pot laws are infringing on the Second Amendment as well as the Tenth. As Mark Scolforo of the Associated Press noted recently, “Federal law bars marijuana users from having guns or ammunition.”

 

“Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana,” confirms Janice Kemp, spokesperson for the Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), “regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medical purposes…is prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition.”

 

“They’re going to have to make a choice,” declares John T. Adams of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. “They can have their guns or their marijuana, but not both.”

 

Nevada has millions of dollars in tax revenue and thousands of jobs at risk because Members of Congress continue to kick this can down the road instead of recognizing that public opinion on marijuana has changed dramatically over the last 20 years and reforming federal marijuana laws accordingly.

 

So don’t blame Jeff Sessions. Blame Congress. As usual.

The Big Selloutski’s Big Democrat Buddy By Dennis Hof

Assemblyman James Oscarson

They say you’re known by the company you keep.

And for tax-hiking RINO (Republican in Name Only) Assemblyman James “The Big Selloutski” Oscarson, one of his BFF’s (Best Friends Forever) is a guy named Greg Esposito.

Who is Greg Esposito?

He’s a political operative who got his start working for the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local Union 525 PAC. And according to the liberal Blue Nevadan blog, “Fortunately for Nevada Democrats, Greg is on our side.”

After getting involved in his first political race in 2002, “Greg then got involved with the Clark County Democratic Party and the state party.”

“In 2008,” the Blue Nevadan continued, “Greg was chair of the Rules Committee and Sargent (sic) at Arms for the Clark County Democratic Party convention” and later served as “chair of the 2012 Clark County Democratic Party convention.”

This Blue Nevadan “Man of the Week” has since opened his own political consulting firm.

“If you believe in something and you want to see it operate properly, you have to be involved,” Greg told the Blue Nevadan. “If you really believe in a candidate, you have to get down to their campaign headquarters and be a part of their team.”

And in 2016, this big-time Democrat operative was part of Team Oscarson!

According to Oscarson’s final 2016 Contributions and Expense Report, Esposito donated $4,569.50 worth of FREE billboard advertising to the Oscarson campaign!

Amazing how that figure came in *just under* the $5,000 contribution cap, isn’t it?

“THANK YOU, Greg,” the Blue Nevadan concluded, “for giving so much of your time and talents to Democratic issues in Nevada!”

Tax-and-spend, big government, liberal Democrats clearly recognize that James Oscarson is one of them.

Fortunately, District 36 Republicans are gonna repeal and replace this RINO in the June 12 GOP primary.

Mr. Hof is a successful Nevada businessman, author, philanthropist, star of an award-winning reality
TV series on HBO and president of the Home of Freedom PAC. He can be reached at DennisHof.com
