Marijuana policy changes not expected to affect North Dakota

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants criminal charges filed in states where the sale and use of marijuana is legal San Diego US Attorney Backs Sessions' Pot Enforcement Policy

The statement by U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer came amid bipartisan outrage over Sessions' decision to end the so-called Cole memorandum, which sharply limited what charges prosecutors could pursue in legal pot states.

As more states passed medical marijuana laws, and with adult-use laws passed in Colorado in 2012, the Obama administration began steering prosecutors away from cases where state and federal laws conflict.

He said there's not a 100% guarantee Florida's medical marijuana law stays in place.

Troyer said his office "has already been guided by these principles in marijuana prosecutions". Appointed in 2016 by the Obama administration, his vacancy now leaves Sessions in charge of choosing a successor.

It will now be up to the US attorneys in each state whether to bust the retail shops that have sprung up since Nevadans passed Question Two in 2016. Under Pennsylvania law, patients with certain illnesses may legally access medical marijuana as part of their treatment regimen.

Colorado officials were surprised by the announcement, state Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman said. Six states legalized recreational marijuana and in 28 states, including IL it's legal for medicinal use.

"It is unfortunate that the people who are on the ground working with marijuana enforcement issues every day ... were not consulted before this guidance was issued, because I think we definitely could have shed some light on that", Coffman said.

"There are 29 states with medical marijuana programs now".

Sean Spicer, one of those alleged to have been instructed by the president to urge Jeff Sessions against recusal.

Q: Can congress reverse Sessions' action - and would lawmakers be inclined to do so? And groups focused on the state's fledgling industry were quick to respond to the attorney general's move.

But what about states' rights?

The state's former "marijuana czar", Andrew Freedman, said Sessions' only point was to create confusion but that the Justice Department can not force states to make pot illegal. But if Gov. Jay Inslee has sway in the matter - and he believes he does - the marijuana business will continue as is. Certainty brings better players into the market, more legitimate capital. "The last time California supported the federal government's efforts, families were torn apart and critical state resources were used to incarcerate more black and brown people than ever before in the history of our state".
