In recent news, Senator Jefferson "Jeff" Sessions (R-AL) (by the way, Jefferson Sessions sounds like a ’60s jazz trio, right?) made headlines at a Tuesday Senate caucus on International Narcotics Control with a quotable phrase about the usage of marijuana. He blasted that years of work “trying to send that message with clarity that good people don’t smoke marijuana” hasn’t resonated.
California lawmakers introduced a new bill Tuesday that would allow law enforcement to use oral swab tests in instances they suspect driving under the influence of marijuana.
Senate Bill 1462 was introduced by Republican Senator Bob Huff of San Dimas. The proposed test is administered by a handheld device that uses an oral swab to detect the presence of marijuana, cocaine, meth, and pain medications.
TV and radio personality Adam Carolla doesn’t think California voters will choose to legalize recreational marijuana this election. Why? According to Carolla, because they love to over-regulate and control people’s lives.
“Every commercial that depicts California shows people running on the beach with the dog and the drink in their hand and having a big bonfire at the end of the night—all of those activities are things you’d be arrested for if you lived in California,” Carolla said.
