Obama Signals Federal Gov’t Won’t Challenge Colorado, Washington Pot Laws

President Obama has signaled for the first time his administration will not try to override recently approved laws in Washington and Colorado approving the recreational use of marijuana. Both laws have recently taken effect following their approval in ballot measures on Election Day. In a yet-to-air interview with ABC News, Obama says: “We’ve got bigger fish to fry … It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it’s legal.” Obama’s comments mark his first on the issue following widespread speculation the White House would try to challenge the Colorado and Washington laws.
