Holder: No More Prosecuting Legal Marijuana Dealers
Now here's a lede from the LA Times that has marijuana activists cheering in the streets: "U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. said Wednesday that the Justice Department has no plans to prosecute pot dispensaries that are operating legally under state laws in California and a dozen other states -- a development that medical marijuana advocates and civil libertarians hailed as a sweeping change in federal drug policy." Last month, Holder said there would be no more raids on legally operated dispensaries. However, ones operating illegally--as in being a front for dealing drugs--will be targeted.
