The Trump Admin is rescinding a policy that has allowed states to freely operate legal marijuana markets. The people of CA have made their will clear and the Admin should help implement the policy responsibly, not subvert our democratic process. [response to recindance of the Cole Memo]

"This is an issue of compassion and common sense. In the age of corporate scandals and terrorism, the Department of Justice has responsibilities far more important than arresting cancer patients."

"Illegal marijuana grow sites that threaten lives, destroy public lands and devastate wildlife have become far too common, said Congressman Thompson.These new sentencing guidelines will serve as a strong deterrent against these illegal grow sites, and they will help make sure criminals who wreck our public and private lands are held fully responsible for the harm they cause."
