John Oliver describes marijuana, basically as ‘catnip for people’ but cats have never suffered for a few minutes of undignified, loopy enjoyment. Happily, Marijuana is now legal in many states, and it’s more widely accepted than than it has been since Nixon targeted it in his ‘War on Drugs.” The bad news is that Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, which means even ‘legal’ pot is illegal. You’ll want to put down the bong as John Oliver explains why conflicting drug laws pose serious problems…Especially if your name is Gregg, just put the pipe down right now. You’ll thank me later.
You may become paranoid when you learn that the friendly herb is classified as a schedule 1 drug by the federal government, the same category as heroin. You’re also in danger of wetting yourself laughing, as the alleged Attorney General Jeff Sessions explains his new get-tough policy on the evil weed! According to Sessions “Good people don’t smoke Marijuana.” Cue up Reefer Madness again because Sessions emphasizes that the drug is “dangerous” adding ” it’s not funny, and it is nothing to laugh about!” What could be funnier ? How about Jeff Sessions pointing to Lady GaGa as his Exhibit A ? “Lady GaGa said she’s addicted to it, and it is NOT harmless!”
