The Obama administration will make a decision "soon" on how the Justice Department will handle marijuana laws passed in Washington and Colorado, Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday.
“We’re still in the process of reviewing both of the initiatives that were passed,” Holder told the National Association of Attorneys General annual conference in Washington D.C., according to The Hill
“You will hear soon," Holder said in response to a question from Colorado Attorney General John Suthers. "We’re in the last stages of that review, and we’re trying to make a determination as to what the policy ramifications are going to be, what our international obligations are -- there are a whole variety of things that go into this determination -- but the people of [Colorado] and Washington deserve an answer, and you will have one soon.”
