US Attorney Won’t Pursue Medical Marijuana Cases In Florida

U.S. Attorney Lawrence Keefe of the Northern District of Florida said that while marijuana remains illegal under federal law, he will not waste resources on issues declared legal and regulated by the state.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office here in the Northern District of Florida is not going to expend its scarce resources prosecuting that which has been expressly made legal by the people of Florida, through their representatives in the state Legislature,” Keefe said Thursday.
