These Stoners Figured Out a Way to Get High with Jeff Sessions

Jeff Sessions, human Keebler Elf and arch nemesis of all things dank, seems like the last guy on Earth who’d share a doob with you. As Trump's attorney general, he's reignited the war on drugs and reversed an Obama-era policy to allow the federal government to meddle with states' legal weed, a move even Republicans hated. But a cunning group of stoners just figured out a way to get high with Sessions—or, at least, with his face.
A pro-pot group called #JeffSesh is selling rolling papers with the AG's mug plastered right on the pack, Newsweek reports. For $5, you'll get 50 of General Jeff's "Old Rebel" Session Papers—perfect for any time you're all worked up about the Trump administration's regressive drug policies and just want to roll up.
According to #JeffSesh's website, the idea of using Sessions's face to sell weed paraphernalia started out, naturally, as a joke. But now the papers are almost sold out, and the group is pushing a social media campaign to let the head of the Justice Department know exactly what they think about his stance on bud.
"We’re not criminals, junkies, or idiots," #JeffSesh wrote on its website. "Regular Jeffs all over the country—good, responsible, patriotic Americans—have a sesh now and then… and it's OK!"
While the group added that when you smoke General Jeff's you're "helping keep the law moving forward," it hasn't said exactly how it'll use the profits. Ideally, all that cash would be going to a nonprofit like NORML or something, but for all we know, it might just be helping a few potheads in Colorado pick up an ounce.
At the end of the day, selling papers might not deal a major blow to Sessions's war on weed, but it's nice to know that, somewhere in America, someone is getting blazed with a guy who once said pot was "only slightly less awful" than heroin.
