Attorney General Jeff Sessions has never been a fan of marijuana legalization. We know that. But on Tuesday, Rep. Steve Cohen sought the nature of Sessions’s opposition. 

Sessions sat before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, largely to answer questions about whether he misled Congress in earlier testimony about the Russian government’s contacts with the campaign of President Donald Trump. Cohen, a Democrat from Tennessee, wanted to touch on marijuana. 

Last year, as a senator representing Alabama, Sessions said that the leaders of the United States government should send a “message with clarity that good people don’t smoke marijuana.”

Cohen wanted to know what Sessions meant by “good people,” so he rattled off the names of prominent Republicans who’ve smoked weed, and asked, “which of those are not good people?”

Sessions, as you might have guessed, didn’t answer the question.
