A federal court ruled Tuesday that the Department of Justice cannot pay to prosecute people who are in compliance with state medical marijuana laws.

That means the DOJ cannot prosecute people who have a license to smoke medicinal marijuana, even if it violates federal drug laws, Time reports. 

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals cited a 2014 Congressional law that prohibited the Justice Department from getting involved with state medical marijuana laws.

The court sent back cases in which defendants were charged with distributing marijuana in states where it’s legal.

There already are 25 states that allow medical marijuana, and nine more states will decide on similar laws in November.

Colorado residents are now allowed to light up marijuana – and the federal government is watching closely.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, people 21 and over were allowed to buy up to 1 ounce of pot, the Desert News reports.

Colorado became the first in the country to allow recreational pot sales.

The Obama administration has said it is not pursuing the sale of medicinal marijuana like it used to.

But whether the FBI tampers with legalization is another issue.
