And Here’s What William Barr Had to Say

President Trump’s nominee to serve as the next U.S. attorney general, pledges not to “go after” marijuana companies that comply with state laws in reliance on the Cole Memorandum.

Barr is also calling for the approval of more legal growers of marijuana for research, and is acknowledging that a recent bill legalizing hemp has broad implications for sale of cannabis products.

It would help, Barr says, if Congress would get busy addressing the growing gap between state and federal marijuana laws.

“I still believe that the legislative process, rather than administrative guidance, is ultimately the right way to resolve whether and how to legalize marijuana,” he wrote in a compilation of responses delivered to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
