Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Jared Polis Head Up Bipartisan Letter To Trump Urging Him To Restore Cole Memo

A bicameral, bipartisan coalition of Congressional leaders Thursday asked President Donald Trump to direct Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reinstate the so-called Cole Memo.

The Department of Justice earlier this month rescinded the Obama-era guidance on marijuana enforcment in states that have legalized medical or recreational cannabis.

The letter authored by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo, is signed by 52 additional members of Congress, including Reps. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., Barbara Lee, D-Calif., Don Young, R-Alaska, Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and Matt Gaetz. R-Fla.

The letter opened with a statement of concern for, “recent steps taken by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to disrupt state efforts to implement their own marijuana enforcement policies.”
