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.

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.
