Justice Department Will Ignore Today’s Decriminalization of Pot in Washington State

Washington state residents who smoke pot today in celebration of the first day of marijuana decriminalization better be on the watch for federal authorities, the Justice Department said Wednesday, the Washington Post reports.

“Regardless of any changes in state law, including the change that will go into effect on Dec. 6 in Washington state, growing, selling or possessing any amount of marijuana remains illegal under federal law,” said a statement issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle on Wednesday evening.

Washington and Colorado voters approved decriminalization measures in November, but they conflict with federal law, which prohibits the use of marijuana.

Colorado’s law is expected to go into effect in a few weeks.
