The Justice Department’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety has failed to come up with policy recommendations that could weaponize Attorney General Sessions’ efforts to wage war on legal marijuana, the AP reported early this month.

The task force report instead urges officials to continue to study whether they want to roll back the clock on the Obama-administration’s laissez-faire approach to states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana.

The report did call for officials to continue to oppose congressional moves to block funding for the department to go after medical marijuana in states where it is legal.

Attorney General Sessions sent a letter to Colorado officials accusing the state of failing to keep marijuana from being diverted out of state or keeping it away from children.

The letter was dated 24 July and cited a Rocky Mountain HIDTA report from last September to raise “serious questions” about the states oversight of its legal marijuana program.

“Please advise as to how Colorado plans to address the serious findings in the Rocky Mountain HIDTA report, including efforts to ensure that all marijuana activity is compliant with state marijuana laws, to combat diversion of marijuana, to protect public health and safety, and to prevent marijuana use by minors,” Sessions wrote in the letter seen by HeffX-LTN. USAG Sessions has sent similar letters to the governors of Oregon and Washington.
