As with all of these memos from the Federal Government on Marijuana, there are no promises. These are just guidelines. But, the main point here is that the policy of the DOJ is NOT to spend its resources on marijuana cases in states where it is legal, highly regulated and sufficiently enforced. This bodes well for Amendment 64 and the recreational marijuana industry that will begin on January 1, 2014.
Here is a link to the actual memo.
Support Colorado NORML on facebook and twitter. Join the only consumer/patient rights organization in Colorado. We do not represent industry interests, just yours. (We often agree with industry interests.) We are a non-profit organization meeting monthly to make sure the individual's voice is heard on marijuana rights issues. Local chapters are forming now. I am a board member and the current secretary.
