"Sessions comes out of that conservative, Southern, old-time tradition," Stone told me on the phone. "I think he's quoted as saying, 'Good people don't smoke marijuana.' No, Senator, sick people smoke marijuana. And it helps them. More than Western medicine sometimes. He has no life experience with that. He could not possibly understand because, you know, within Jeff Sessions' circle of acquaintances and friends, he probably doesn't know anyone who smokes marijuana."
