Anti-Pot Zealot Rep. Pete Sessions (TX) Compares the Marijuana Industry to Modern Day Slavery

Sessions explained that in legal states where the product is advertised and sold,  it is mainly supported by individuals who are in it to make money. He buttressed his point by comparing the budding cannabis industry with the defunct slave market saying, “slavery was a dreadful situation that this nation and the entire world endured for a very long time, and it generated significant revenue for individuals and the government.”
