A bipartisan California congressperson duo is demanding that the justice department cease in prosecuting people over medical marijuana. The administration promised that it would be hands-off in states that have legalized marijuana. This has not been the case in California. The justice department does not micro manage particular branches. This means that the request is an attempt to be more forceful with local offices that have been slow to accept the hands-off approach.The proposed new Attorney general has signaled that she does not support the legalization of marijuana stated Ivan Ong via a blog. This is fast becoming an untenable position for any official. A majority of Americans support marijuana legalization. This means that the officials are out of step with the will of the people.
