Justice Department Ends Long Battle with States Over Marijuana Use

The Justice Department has announced an end to challenging state laws that permit residents to use marijuana for recreation and medical use, the USA Today reports.

The directive was sent to federal prosecutors nationwide.

But there are conditions. The Justice Department, for example, will still go after anyone who sells pot to minors or use the sales as a cover for trafficking operations, the USA Today wrote.

Medical marijuana is legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia. Colorado and Washington state also allow for recreational use by adults.
