A House lawmaker Friday introduced a bill to end the conflict between the federal government and the states over legalized pot, five months after Colorado and Washington voters approved the first statewide ballot measures decriminalizing marijuana use for adults.
Not all Coloradans appreciated former Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy harshing their buzz Wednesday with his anti-marijuana effort.
"And it probably should. Since users who consume small amounts of marijuana are rarely, if ever, noticed by federal authorities, this provision would have little real-world effect," Mr. Sabet, president of Policy Solutions Group, said in an email. "It would, however, represent something of a symbolic victory toward repealing all of our marijuana laws."
"I understand we're in Colorado, but we do have a federal law," Mr. Sabet said. "And so that is going to have to be discussed in terms of federal versus state, so we don't know what the outcome is of that yet."
