USA: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Hammers, Whips, Changes ..It’s all in the Wind

“Maybe there will be changes to it in the future,” said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Merry Jane reports….

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein admitted to the Senate Appropriations committee earlier this week that the United States could see some changes in the way the Justice Department deals with enforcement issues in areas of legal marijuana.On Tuesday, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska gave Rosenstein the third degree over the confusion that exists between state and federal marijuana laws. The senator wanted the law enforcement official to divulge information regarding whether the Justice Department is making plans to impose a federal crackdown on legal states, or if it would continue to adhere to the policies established under President Obama.

Murkowski asked: “Where are we headed with marijuana?”

Although Rosenstein’s response was vague, it did suggest that the Justice Department was more likely to bring down the hammer than allow the industry to carry on unscathed.

“We do have a conflict between federal law and the law in some states,” Rosenstein replied. “It’s a difficult issue for parents like me, who have to provide guidance to our kids… I’ve talked to Chuck Rosenberg, the administrator of the DEA and we follow the law and the science. And from a legal and scientific perspective, marijuana is an unlawful drug. It’s properly scheduled under Schedule I. And therefore we have this conflict.”

Rosenstein then explained that former President Obama’s Cole Memo, which gives states the power to experiment with marijuana legalization, could soon be overhauled.
