Legal pot won't miss Sessions. "Attorney General Jefferson Sessions was a national disgrace. NORML hopes he finds the time during his retirement to seek treatment for his affliction of 1950s reefer madness," Erik Altieri, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said in a statement following the AG's ouster on November 7.

The next night, hundreds gathered at the Colorado Capitol for a protest against the Trump administration. Prompted by the president's demand that Sessions resign, the rally, which included a who's-who list of state Democrats, was part of hundreds of #ProtectMueller protests happening around the U.S.
