Our colleague Joseph A. McNelis III has written an excellent article for the In the Weeds blog about a recent statement from the U.S. Attorney in Massachusetts regarding his office’s enforcement priorities surrounding recreational marijuana.  In his statement, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling noted that while he cannot “immunize the residents of the Commonwealth from federal marijuana enforcement,” his office’s resources will be focused on (1) unauthorized out-of-state marijuana sales; (2) targeted sales to minors; and (3) organized criminal groups which use illicit drug sales to fund their activities.  You can read the blog post here.
