Roger Stone wants Donald Trump to let the American people legally toke, like he promised in the campaign -- and if Jeff Sessions is standing in the way ... smoke him out.

We got President Trump's former adviser in NYC, and he had a hot take on pot and Sessions' decision this month to reverse a hands-off approach on legalized marijuana. 

Can't say we expected this -- but Stone firmly believes Trump must fulfill his pledge and allow the states to handle their weed biz ... sans any pestering from the feds. 

Like he says ... Trump could lose big on this issue if Sessions keeps "f***ing it up." Stone says Jeff's gotta go.

Meek Mill Someone Shot Me at Your Concert So I'll Take a Shot at You in Court

1/18/2018 1:50 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill is responsible for a fan getting shot at one of his concerts ... so claims the fan who is now suing him.

The concert in question went down December 30, 2016 at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, CT.  Two men died from the gunfire and 2 others were injured.

Dylan Thomas was shot in the leg, and claims Meek's responsible because he was the man in charge. Thomas goes on to say there has been violence at previous Meek Mill concerts, so he should have known the real possibility of more violence existed and therefore should have had more security. 

The incident went down after the concert in a parking lot on the premises.

The lawsuit also names Roc Nation as a defendant, alleging it allowed "thugs" to remain on the premises after they had exhibited disorderly, disruptive, argumentative, angry, and/or agitated behavior.

Meek had been previously sued by the family of one of the men who died, who claimed that the presence of "thugs" incited the violence. Meek responded that the "thug" fan reference in that lawsuit was racist.
