“Treasonous”? Tory Senator Posts Pic With Sessions, Criticizes Canada’s Pot Policy

Donning a feminine red dress and with a wide smile almost from cheek to cheek, Canadian Conservative Senator Denise Batters looks happy in a picture with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions during her current visit to Washington, D.C.

But in reality, Batters’ tweet on Wednesday shows that she isn’t too happy.

She expressed concern over Canada’s imminent marijuana legalization, expected to take effect nationwide this summer, and its effect on Canadian-U.S. relations with Sessions.

Sessions is a hardline anti-marijuana bulwark, for him, the green herb is a “gateway” to deadly drugs such as heroin, and he is currently giving Americans especially those living in states where marijuana is legal a really hard time.

Batters is in the U.S. capital alongside two other tory senators, Claude Carignan and Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu.

The senator said she is in Washington since Tories weren’t able to get “answers” from the Liberal-led government at home.

The visit comes after the almost Conservative-dominated Senate approved in principle the Cannabis Act or Bill-45.

The bill was passed at second reading by a vote of 44-29.

Twitter Users Called Her Act “Treasonous”

Her tweet received some reactions.

Some caller her move as “treasonous” and others dubbed it as “betrayal.”

One memorable Twitter user told her to visit Colorado, the first U.S. state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana since 2012.
