Decades later, in 2008, the City Council declared Berkeley a sanctuary for medical cannabis patients and providers.

"I believe we can balance public safety and resisting the Trump administration", Mayor Jesse Arreguin said during Tuesday's council meeting.

The council's vote means that city agencies and employees will not be allowed to provide information regarding legal marijuana by adults, SFGate reported.

Berkeley has a long history of lenient marijuana laws.

Recreational marijuana became legal in California on January 1, thanks to Proposition 64, which voters passed in 2016.

"In light of threats by Attorney General Sessions regarding a misguided crackdown on our democratic decision to legalize recreational cannabis, we have become what may be the first city in the country to declare ourselves a sanctuary city for cannabis", Arreguin tweeted Tuesday.

Sessions's memo said, however, that federal prosecutors could decide how aggressively to pursue marijuana-related cases.

This isn't the first time Berkeley city officials have used a sanctuary approach when it comes to marijuana. His one-page memo made it clear that marijuana possession and distribution is against federal law, and USA attorneys should approach these cases as they do all other cases when enforcing them.
