U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer Issues Statement Regarding Marijuana Prosecutions in Colorado

DENVER – U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer of the District of Colorado has issued the following statement regarding marijuana prosecutions:


“Today the Attorney General rescinded the Cole Memo on marijuana prosecutions, and directed that federal marijuana prosecution decisions be governed by the same principles that have long governed all of our prosecution decisions.  The United States Attorney’s Office in Colorado has already been guided by these principles in marijuana prosecutions -- focusing in particular on identifying and prosecuting those who create the greatest safety threats to our communities around the state.  We will, consistent with the Attorney General’s latest guidance, continue to take this approach in all of our work with our law enforcement partners throughout Colorado.”
