I also am open to suggestions on marijuana policy and related matters as we work to carry out our duties to effectively and faithfully execute the laws of the United States. You may direct your response and suggestions to the Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Liaison within the Office of Legislative Affairs, which can help coordinate any communications logistics. I look forward to your response.
Left Out of Sessions’ Letter:
- Marijuana-related suicides
- Marijuana-related violence. For, example, a man high on marijuana killed policeman Jake Gutierrez. He was holding his 6-year-old daughter while in a standoff with multiple police that lasted 10 hours.
- 3 deaths that occurred in hash oil labs and grow sites
- Mass murders caused by heavy marijuana users. For example, Arcan Cetin killed 5 at the Cascades Mall and Jaylen Fryburg killed 4, plus himself, at the high school in Marysville.
Despite the incredible problems from legalizing weed, a video from Huffington Post chooses to call reminders of these problems “Reefer Madness.”
