A marijuana advocacy group has an amusing new product for sale. The packaging for “General Jeff’s ‘Old Rebel’ Session Papers” features U.S. Attorney General’s Jeff Sessions’ face with a joint in his mouth.
On the group #JeffSesh’s website, they say they’re running a campaign to inform Sessions that people who use pot for recreation or medicine “are not criminals.”
“We’re not criminals, junkies or idiots,” a blurb on the website reads. “Regular Jeffs all over the country—good, responsible, patriotic Americans—have a sesh now and then… and it’s OK!”
“A priority declared by the previous administration encouraged federal investigators to respect states’ legal cannabis rights and prioritize other concerns, like national security,” the statement continued. “Jeff Sessions rolled that back. #JeffSesh tells him we’re not going back.”
Speaking to Newsweek, a rep for the group said the idea for the rolling papers started out as a joke, but later became a project when they realized it “could be bigger than that.”
“Our intent in actually making these papers is to poke a little good-natured fun at our Attorney General, who doesn’t seem to have changed his mind or read any news about cannabis since the Nixon-era,” the rep said according to Newsweek. “His ideas about marijuana have the potential to harm millions of Americans who use this plant safely and legally in 2018.
This January, Sessions reversed an Obama-era policy that allowed states to decide how they enforced marijuana laws.
“It is the mission of the Department of Justice to enforce the laws of the United States, and the previous issuance of guidance undermines the rule of law,” Sessions said in a statement.
