Where Are the Defense Attorneys?

From the New York Times:

Ms. Lynch is not expected to push for changing marijuana laws. Under Mr. Holder, the Justice Department did not stand in the way of states that legalized marijuana. And in his final months in office, he questioned whether the government should keep marijuana on the list of the most serious drugs, in the same category as heroin. Ms. Lynch, who told aides during the confirmation process that she had never smoked marijuana, does not share that view. She told the Senate that she did not support legalization and did not agree with Mr. Obama that marijuana may not be more dangerous than alcohol.

Another reason not to appoint career prosecutors to run the Justice Department, any more than banksters should run the Fed or the Koch Brothers Energy or union bosses Labor. Bad enough that both house of Congress are loaded down with lawyers, most of them former prosecutors thoroughly marinated in our astonishingly cruel and corrupt criminal injustice system. Incest is inevitable.
