This bleak outlook had not yet emerged on when I spoke with Justin Strekal, the political director for the National Organization of the Reform of Marijuana Laws, or NORML. Cole in his memo had strictly addressed all the attorneys that the federal prosecutors should be exercising discretion so as not to enforce any bans on the Cannabis in states, which have legalized the marijuana use if the verdict is that it is adequate to end the drug, and gang related violence. But critics say the move could cause chaos and confusion and have adverse effects on people of colour.

Under the Cole Memorandum in 2013, new priorities were set that allowed states to individually distribute and consume marijuana for both medicinal and recreational means.

But what effect will this legislative change have?

Alme was nominated for Montana U.S. Attorney last June by U.S. Sen.

The Cole Memo, issued under the Obama administration, gave guidance to USA attorneys saying prosecutors shouldn't focus on states that legalized it, as long as they had strong, effective regulations to keep it out of the hands of minors and stop it from being diverted for other illegal activity.

Currently, over half of the the states have legalized marijuana use, medical or recreational.

"In Washington state we have put in place a system in place that adheres to what we pledged to the people of Washington and the federal government; it's well regulated, keeps criminal elements out, keeps pot out of the hands of kids and tracks it all carefully enough to clamp down on cross-border leakage", said Washington State Governor Jay Inslee.

On New Year's Day, California joined the growing list of states and the District of Columbia where it is now legal to sell marijuana.

"Make no mistake: As we have told the Department of Justice ever since I-502 was passed in 2012, we will vigorously defend our state's laws against undue federal infringement", said Inslee. "The Cole Memo was not among them".

"Just a couple of weeks ago, the Attorney General and the DOJ went through and purged a number of Obama-era guidance memos", he said.
