Legal Weed Activists Versus Senator Jeff Sessions

Like other would-be attorney generals before him, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) expects to get a Senate hearing and a vote before President-elect Donald Trump takes office on January 20th, 2017. However, before getting his preparations complete before the hearing, the Senator had to deal with a number of marijuana legalization activists who attempted to bring weed into his Capitol Hill office in an effort to persuade him to abandon his anti-pot stance.

Although this took place in early December in Washington, DC—where marijuana has mostly been decriminalized since 2015, the activists who smuggled pot into Mr. Session’s office risked arrest on account of having brought the substance into a federal building.

At least two of the more 20 activists who made their way into the Senator’s office managed to sneak the contraband past a US Capitol Police security checkpoint. Once inside, some activists blatantly rolled a joint. Others though engaged in a conversation with the Senator’s communications director, Chris Jackson, regarding medical use of marijuana and their concerns over the continued federal prohibition of the plant.
