In an effort to keep you guys updated on what toker-related activities are going on in national news…here’s a recap!
As you know, medical marijuana is legal in twenty states and the District of Columbia, and recreational use of marijuana is legal in Washington and Colorado. Despite these state laws, the federal government still doesn’t recognize marijuana as legal in any respect.
Obviously, marijuana advocates have been pushing for a firm statement from the administration on how the Justice Department plans to handle marijuana offenses in these states.
In response to these questions, Attorney General Eric Holder gave federal prosecutors new guidelines to ensure attorneys focus their attention on major cases. Last week, he instructed them in eight areas of priority, including preventing marijuana distribution to minors, preventing drugged driving, stopping drug trafficking by gangs and cartels and forbidding the cultivation of marijuana on public lands. The Justice Department stated that they will respect state laws and encourage states to handle minor cases of casual use on their own.
These new guidelines will apply not only to the twenty states where marijuana is legal either medically or recreationally, but to all states.
Organizations like the Marijuana Policy Project are feeling pretty positive, though.
“Today’s announcement is a major and historic step toward ending marijuana prohibition. The Department of Justice’s decision to allow implementation of the laws in Colorado and Washington is a clear signal that states are free to determine their own policies with respect to marijuana,” said Dan Riffle, the group’s director of federal policy.
