Donald Trump's attorney general pick really, really doesn't like weed.
"Good people don't smoke marijuana," Jeff Sessions said during a hearing on state recreational marijuana.
More than half of the U.S. has legalized or decriminalized pot use. But the drug is still illegal under federal law.
President Obama's DOJ mostly deferred to state laws on pot. The government focused on disrupting gangs and drug trafficking.
But Sessions could throw those guidelines out the window. Federal raids on state-sanctioned dispensaries could destabilize the legal weed industry.
Sessions might also block criminal justice reform efforts. That would keep nonviolent drug offenders in prison for longer.
But the war on pot is an uphill battle these days. 60 percent of Americans support some form of legalized pot — including Sessions' new boss.
Trump told GQ, "For medicinal purposes, for medical purposes, absolutely. It's fine."
