Donald Trump's nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., as attorney general could have dire consequences for Washington state's marijuana industry, for the wishes of the public, and for common sense when it comes to federal drug policy. While Trump said during the campaign that, "In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state," Sessions is an old-school hard-liner when it comes to drug policy.

El Commandante was a hero to leftists around the world, who conveniently ignored his real record as a brutal despot who killed thousands in his gulag, and thousands more through the deprivations that come with a failed, socialist economic system.
