aNewDomain — No one knows for sure whether Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, Jeff Sessions (R-AL), will attempt to kill off recreational legal weed sales in the eight U.S. states that now allow it.
But what of medical marijuana? Isn’t science in its favor?
That may not matter to Sessions or the other appointees who are headed for Capitol Hill. Most of these ultra-conservatives don’t even recognize the mounds of scientific evidence behind global warming, and that’s the biggest threat going. So why would they buckle on their anti-cannabis stances?
Then again, and this is a long shot, but maybe the legions of anti-science zealots that Trump has selected for his cabinet aren’t anti-science at all. Maybe they are just intimidated by science. Or easily bored. Maybe they don’t read that well. Or maybe they just hang out at fake news site or only read celebrity news.
