Federal Anti-Marijuana Crackdown

Arlington, VA: The National District Attorneys Association is calling for the federal government to strictly enforce anti-cannabis laws in states that have regulated its production and distribution for either medical or recreational purposes.

In a new white paper, the group recommends that the Trump administration set aside the 2013 Cole memorandum directing US Attorneys not to interfere with state legalization efforts and those licensed to engage in the plant's tightly regulated production and sale.

"To maintain respect for the rule of law, it is essential that federal drug enforcement policy regarding the manufacture, importation, possession, use and distribution of marijuana be applied consistently across the nation," the NDAA paper concludes.

The National District Attorneys Association is the largest and oldest prosecutor organization in the country.
