Justice will not challenge state laws

Makes Statement0 Comments

The Justice Department will not challenge state laws that allow for the medical and recreational use of marijuana as long as the drug sales do not conflict with eight new federal enforcement priorities, including the distribution of marijuana to minors and sales that assist or act as cover for trafficking operations. Although the directive will apply nationwide, it will largely affect the 20 states and the District of Columbia that allow for medical marijuana use, and Colorado and Washington where state laws allow medical and recreational use by adults.
