White House hints at crackdown on recreational marijuana

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday suggested the Trump administration will step up enforcement of federal laws against recreational marijuana.

“I do believe that you’ll see greater enforcement,” Spicer said, while adding the exact policy is “a question for the Department of Justice.”

It’s the latest sign President Trump is poised to take a tougher approach than the Obama Justice Department did in states that have legalized the use of recreational marijuana.



Attorney General Jeff Sessions was coy about his approach last month during his confirmation hearing."Using good judgment about how to handle these cases will be a responsibility of mine,” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/01/10/sessi. “I know it won't be an easy decision, but I will try to do my duty in a fair and just way."
