    Question ...

    Are there any reliable sources on the percentage of patients on "medical marijuana" in the US?

    This I am not against.

    But, personally, I am 100% against legalizing pot as a recreational drug ...

    No matter the restrictions put on it, by some of the states that do.

    30 states have legal medical marijuana and Sessions has vowed to prosecute it also. We will lose the fall elections without question if federal law is not changed, is it worth throwing everything away over pot?

    It's so pervasive, both medical (Legit and the vastly-more numerous made-up-just-to-get-the-card type) and ignored recreational use, that it's already de facto legal, like booze in the final days of Prohibition. I personally find it nasty-smelling loser-bait, but at this point nothing positive for the DOJ and Prez can come of Sessions taking this tack and seriously pursuing it.

    To those that think it's an insignificant problem I remember another insignificant plant/habit and all they wanted to do was tax it not prohibit it. I'm thinking it was tea.

    The economy, stupid.

    Whatever happens with it, marijuana is not going to move the needle on the 2018 elections. The people for whom it is a pivotal issue won't be voting GOP, never have, never will. If anything, it will motivate the social conservative base of the GOP. Sessions is going after this to distract the base from the God awful, incompetent job he is doing as a whole.

    I think you have to pick your battles wisely. Sessions needs to be reeled in on this. This "I intend to prosecute any and everybody no matter what" is willfully ignorant. He is wrong medically, and wrong politically. For him to grandstand this issue is another way of avoiding the real problems he should be focused on.

    Medical marijuana was a Trojan Horse from square one. There are numerous doctors who will prescribe MMJ for anything, and the MMJ advocates knew this in advance. The intent of MMJ was to give cover for personal-use dopers, complicating and confusing law enforcement.

    Real medicines are of controlled purity and dose. MMJ dispensaries sell product of varying quality and the "dose" is "as 'needed'".

    MMJ advocates played on the compassion of voters and legislators to get their fraud passed.

    Tax revenue in Colorado exceeded 500 million last fall and many other states are hauling it in too, they won't give in easily.
    Is it really wise to raise a stink like this on an election year?
