The Obama administration will not seek to arrest medical marijuana users and suppliers as long as they conform to state laws, under new policy guidelines to be sent to federal prosecutors Monday.
Two Justice Department officials described the new policy to The Associated Press, saying prosecutors will be told it is not a good use of their time to arrest people who use or provide medical marijuana in strict compliance with state laws.
Different opinions on drug laws are legitimate but that’s why you have a congress that can repeal laws and presidents who can sign them.
Update: At least one D.A. in LA gets it.
