--------

Cory Gardner is rightfully pissed off at Thursday's action by Attorney General Jeff Sessions reneging on a promise he made to Gardner during Sessions' confirmation process that the DOJ would remain "hands-off" when it comes to prosecuting those engaged in marijuana-related businesses operating legally under state law.

Cory's full statement on the Senate floor.

 
 

Just coincidentally, I'm sure, the day before Sessions' announcement about marijuana, he named 17 interim US Attorneys around the country:
