Roger Stone, a longtime Republican political dirty trickster who has worked with presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, clearly is not a fan of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In a video shared by TMZ, Stone did not mince words when it came down to Sessions’ rescinding Obama-era guidelines protecting states that have legalized marijuana from federal overreach.
Here is what Stone thinks of the nation’s top cop:
“If Jeff Sessions is allowed to continue as attorney general and run a crackdown on state-legalized marijuana, Trump is going to lose. This [legalization] is a very popular position in the country. People overwhelmingly support medicinal marijuana. It [Sessions’ position] is inconsistent with the president’s position in the campaign. He made a solemn pledge to protect the access of millions of Americans to medicinal marijuana. And now his attorney general is fucking it up. Jeff Sessions has got to go.”
Stone is a longtime friend of Trump and a prominent figure in the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He also is an advocate for legal cannabis.

This is not the first time Stone spoke out against a federal crackdown on marijuana. Last February, he tweeted:
A crackdown on legal marijuana in the states will cost thousands of jobs & bankrupt local govt- huge mistake #StatesRights@realDonaldTrump

Note: You can’t find that tweet now because Stone, living up to his reputation as a shit-disturber, was banned PERMANENTLY from Twitter back in October for a series of expletive-laden tweets ripping a handful of media personalities. For example, Stone tweeted that CNN anchor Don Lemon was “dumber than dog shit” and deserved to be mocked. In another tweet, Stone commanded Lemon to “stop lying about the Clinton’s and Uranium you ignorant lying covkscucker.”
Twitter is not the only place Stone is not welcome. Last September, Stone was removed from the speaker’s list at a Los Angeles cannabis conference. The Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo jettisoned Stone “following collaborative discussions with numerous partners, participants, and interested parties who support the legalization of cannabis in an inclusive manner.”
